Dr. Douglas Wright is one of the most experienced board certified orthodontists in Western New York and a third generation specialist. His father, Laurence C. Wright started the family practice in 1955. Many of the parents that bring in their children for braces were patients themselves at Dr. Wright’s practice.
The philosophy of his father Dr. Larry, has been carried through all of these years to our present practice:
“to treat each patient with kindness and care while providing the best orthodontic treatment at a reasonable cost.”
Dr. Doug, as his patients refer to him, enjoys getting to know his patients and bringing them the satisfaction of a beautiful smile. He believes that perfecting a smile can bring strong confidence to each and every patient. He knows that most teenagers are already self-conscious about their appearances.
