Our highly trained and caring team provides comprehensive and individualized services for patients of all ages, 6 months and older. Dr. Kimberly Wright is a fully trained general dentist who provides many procedures alongside like-minded, well-trained specialists. Our patients often compliment us on our professional thoroughness, whether they’re getting their first examination or complicated restorative care.
We get to know each patient individually so that we may customize your care based on your unique needs and concerns. Relaxed and friendly, we also foster a peaceful environment for patients, whether you’re calm or anxious about visiting the dentist. We use every possible strategy, including pharmacology, to relieve anxiety.
For the past 15 years, Dr. Wright has specialized in diagnosing and treating orofacial pain, which includes TMJ and other joint or neurological based facial pains. Many physicians and dentists don’t understand this area of medicine or how they influence each other. As a result, patients often suffer longer than necessary before getting help. If you’re experiencing facial pain problems, you’re in the right hands with Dr. Wright. Even if you have been elsewhere without relief don’t think you are out of options. Make an appointment today and be closer to relief!"
