Justin Wright, DDS
Dr. Wright’s passion for dentistry began as a little fella when he regularly spent time with his adopted granddaddy, Dr. Alton Flynn, a dentist himself of 54 years. During their time riding horses, working cattle, fixing fences and shootin’ the bull, Dr. Flynn shared many life lessons and truths. But the day he said, “Justin, you naturally care for people and are good with your hands bending that wire. I think you would make an excellent dentist,” a goal was set.
Many things changed as that young boy grew up and graduated from Cleburne High School, but his dream never wavered. It took him to Texas A&M University where he graduated with Honors as a Research Fellow under renowned dentist Dr. David Busbee, investigating developmental defects such as cleft lip/cleft palate. While at Texas A&M, Dr. Wright was also involved in many organizations including Aggie Men’s Club and Kanakuk Kamps (Christian sports camp) as a counselor.
After earning his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science, Dr. Wright attended the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston where he pursued a Doctorate of Dental Surgery with a minor in fishing and surfing. While there, he became a Fellow of the American Academy of Research Dentistry (now IADR) continuing his research in oral developmental defects.
Dr. Wright believes his patients deserve the highest level of service and dentistry’s best options. To meet that mission, he’s taken hundreds of hours of continuing education and invested in many patient-friendly technologies. He loves being a dentist and providing treatment that helps patients enjoy a better quality of life.
When he’s not restoring smiles, Dr. Wright can be found outdoors. He enjoys, skiing, hunting, as much bowfishing as possible and hanging out with his best friend and wife, Jenni, and their two energetic boys. He always looks forward to sharing his fish tales and establishing friendships with the many new patients that choose Just Wright Dental for their dental healthcare.
