His practice offers a wide array of services for patients of all ages, including:

Cosmetic dentistry – when it comes to the appearance of the smile, there are several treatments available to address imperfections. This area of dentistry is known as cosmetic dentistry and includes services that are designed to address problem areas of the smile. This includes composite resin fillings, porcelain bridges, dental crowns, veneers, and even professional teeth whitening services.

  • Preventive dentistry – taking care of the smile includes being an active participant in protecting the teeth and gums from cavities and disease. If you need preventive care, we can help with in-office cleanings, evaluations, and education.
  • Family dentistry – patients of all ages can receive care in our practice, including young children. We offer back-to-back appointments for children and their parents to make it easier than ever to get in for routine dental work and evaluations.
  • Periodontal services – periodontal disease is a serious condition that can cause inflammation in the mouth and the loss of gum tissue, bone, and even natural adult teeth. With early diagnosis and treatment, many patients can address the problem before it becomes worse. We also provide services to manage periodontal disease, as it can only be controlled, not cured.
  • Dental restorations – repairing the smile is done with dental restorations. Common restorative treatments available in our office include dental fillings, crowns, dentures, bridges, and even root canal therapy procedures to maintain a natural tooth after damage.

"Insurance companies can't tell me what's good for my patients," Dr. Mark H Wright discusses going Out-Of-Network

Dr. Mark Wright Insurance
One of the most common reasons for people to opt out of certain dental treatments is the lack of support from their dental insurance plan. There are many such instances where oral health care tends to take a backseat when dental insurance is concerned. Watch as Dr. Mark H Wright discusses on why he decided to go out-of-network and how he decided to tread a difficult path in order to prioritize his patients’ welfare before insurance plans.

I have talked a lot about what I love about dentistry and often times people would say what is your least favorite thing, or what bothers you most about doing dentistry. And I love every aspect of it, I would say the most challenging thing that I deal with daily is dental insurance. It is something that has really started to affect the way that everybody practices including myself. And after many years we decided to go out of network, and the reason we did that is, there is multiple things, but one of the main things is that it was starting to affect the way we treat our patients. Whether it is me phoning in a prescription for a patient and being told that, no I can’t—the patient can’t have that because it is not on their plan. Well, what if I think that is the best thing for them? That is what they come to me for, and that is what I worked so hard for. It’s to be able to do what I think is right for them, not what the insurance company thinks is right for them. I have a relationship with them on an emotional and professional level, dental insurance companies have a fiduciary relationship—it is no even insurance, it has not been insurance for many years—It is a benefit. The other frustrating thing about that is, it dictates how people think about their oral health. It dictates the treatment that they receive, because if it is a difference between going on vacation or having necessary work done it impacts their lives. And I get that, but it breaks my heart when people think of their oral health as this limit of ‘what my insurance would pay.’ We still accept that people’s insurances, we still file for them, but I have chosen to go down a path that not very many people do anymore. Solely because I think it is in my patients’ best interest.
