My name is Dr. Nicole Wright, and I would like to thank you for taking a moment to learn more about me. I bring with my experience a superior level of care that you've come to expect when you visit Winston-Salem Periodontics. My husband, Josh, and I recently moved to Winston-Salem with our two young children. I am excited to be a part of the Winston-Salem dental community and am looking forward to providing you with an excellent team who can help you improve your oral and overall health.
I am a native of Colorado and grew up in a household where hard work and education were equally important. Thankfully, I took the advice of my parents and attended an in-state school for my undergraduate education. After studying biochemistry for three years at Colorado State University, I was accepted to dental school at the University of Colorado. I completed my dental training in 2005 and went on to study periodontics at the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Administration hospital. I graduated from the three-year residency in 2008 and had the honor of being chief resident.
Upon completion of my periodontal training, I worked to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and Dental Implant Surgery, a distinction held by less than one half of my peers. Prior to moving to Winston-Salem, I was an active participant in the local dental community in Asheville, North Carolina. In addition to treating patients in my private practice, I was a mentor and guest speaker for the Mountain Area Health and Education Center (MAHEC) General Practice Residency students. I believe in giving back and have provided volunteer services at the Veterans Administration dental clinic, participated in the Missions of Mercy (MOM) project, Dentistry from the Heart, and also spent two weeks providing dental care to HIV/AIDS orphans in Romania.
When I am not working with my team and patients, I love spending time with my beautiful children and supportive husband, Josh. I enjoy (sometimes) running, yoga and exploring new cities, especially when there is good food involved. Josh is helping me learn to love golf.
