The Daily Dentist is in. Ms. Wright’s alter-ego is as an oral health proponent on social media and at community events. It’s the natural outcome for a woman who lost seven teeth to decay in high school and has been dedicated to help improve oral health for all ever since. It’s a commitment she plans to continue after graduation.

“I want to take time away from the practice and return into the schools with my team and do things like the Lessons in a Lunch box program, or return to the developing countries for dental/medical missions,” she wrote in her application. “I also plan to continue my role as The Daily Dentist, and continue doing workshops at local community centers, churches, and other places where I'm invited.”
