Dr. Cynthia Wright’s background is a lot like the Old South Pearl Street neighborhood: diverse and community-focused. After earning her dental degree, Dr. Wright completed a General Practice Residency (something only 7 percent of practicing dentists can claim) and purposefully chose to practice in a variety of environments to treat a mix of patients and cases.

She’s worked in a family practice, as a temp in general practices, and as an emergency care dentist. She has volunteered her time and dental services in Nicaragua, Guatemala and Cambodia. So, if it’s happened to someone’s teeth, Dr. Wright most likely has seen it and successfully treated it.

She has also spent her share of time in the dental chair, so Dr. Wright understands her patients’ needs. Just ask her how much work she’s had done on the right side of her own mouth and you’ll quickly learn that her appreciation of her patients’ needs is very real. Dr. Wright works in concert with her patients, educating them about their oral health and providing honest treatment recommendations that work for each patient.

So, relax. Your smile is safe with Dr. Wright.

While Dr. Wright may be new to the Old South Pearl Street community, she’s committed to providing the highest quality care using the latest technology to make smiles in the neighborhood sparkle. Having grown up in a community-oriented area in Houston, Dr. Wright quickly felt an emotional pull to Old South Pearl Street when she and her business partner, Dr. Stephanie Stratil, began searching for the right place to practice. What they found in Old South Pearl Street is a place where they could both live and work. Don’t be surprised if you see Dr. Wright on the tennis or volleyball courts at Wash Park on the weekends. If you do see her around the neighborhood, give her a smile.
