General Dentist
Affordable Dentures & Implants



Dr. Wright is a wife, mom of two, and a graduate of the University of Florida College of Dentistry. In addition to practicing as a General Dentist in Orlando, FL, she is also heavily involved in organized dentistry. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Dental Society of Greater Orlando, where she recently completed her term as Editor of the quarterly journal and is now serving as President-Elect. She is also the 17th District Alternate Delegate to the American Dental Association (ADA), the 17th District Representative to the ADA New Dentist Committee and is the New Dentist Member to the Council on Dental Practice, also at the ADA. Additionally, Dr. Wright serves as a mentor to those currently in and desiring to enter the dental field.

In 2020 during the global pandemic, Dr. Wright began a mentorship program: Doctors for future Doctors (DFFD), where she enrolled successive cohorts of pre-dental students from either low SES or underrepresented backgrounds, and helped them not only with the common steps required for admissions into dental school, but also life skills such as budgeting, time management, emotional intelligence, verbal/nonverbal communication. Through each module of the DFFD program, students would be use the lessons to apply to their upcoming application cycle, and eventually transfer said skills into the rigors of their dental school curriculum. Dr. Wright's approach to dentistry and mentorship inspires students alike to value their role as leaders, while also providing their patients with optimal dental care. Last but not least, Dr. Wright enjoys reading for leisure, for personal and professional growth, and she spends quality time with her family often at many of Florida's sandy beaches.
