In 1989, she graduated with honors from Oregon Health & Science University. She is known as a lifelong learner and continuing education junkie, taking more than 100 hours of CE annually. Dr. Wright earned the prestigious Masters Award from the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) in 2011. She has actively served professional associations in leadership roles, such as the past president of the Oregon AGD and past trustee for the Oregon Dental Association (ODA). She is currently the incoming chair of the ODA Leadership Development Committee and of the AGD National PACE Council. Dr. Wright is also a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Orofacial Pain, American Headache Society and Pierre Fauchard Academy. Caring for patients and caring for our profession are her professional passions. Dr. Wright shares her office location with her husband, Noel Tenoso, a private practice physical therapist. They have two daughters; their oldest is at the University of Oregon and their youngest is in the West Linn – Wilsonville School District. Together, the family enjoys traveling, cooking, eating of course and exploring the great outdoors.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wright "At Advance Dental Arts Center, a general dental practice in West Linn, Oregon, we provide excellent care,  one patient at a time. 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!"
