Dr. Katy Wright
Dr. Wright grew up in the beautiful Willamette Valley in Corvallis, Oregon. She enjoyed art and biological science classes in school, so healthcare was a natural fit. She attended Oregon State University on a women’s golf scholarship, then later graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon in 1987.
After being commissioned into the US Navy as a lieutenant, it was off to San Diego, California to work as a general dentist in the US Navy, at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot (boot camp) for three years. Ten years later, after moving back to the Portland area, she was searching for new career challenges and was fascinated with the advanced technology in the field of endodontics. She and her family relocated to Minneapolis, MN for three years while Katy received her specialty training at the UM dental school to earn a Masters of Science and specialty certificate in the field of endodontics.
She started this dental practice in 2005 with the vision to provide the local community with a quality driven, patient centered office where each patient would be treated with integrity and compassion. Katy enjoys playing golf with friends and spending time with her two sons and husband of 25+ years.

She completed her undergraduate degree at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, and then moved to Indianapolis where she completed additional dental pre-requisites and worked as an anatomy teaching assistant at IUPUI. After a year in Indianapolis, she moved to Boston, Massachusetts and attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she received her DMD and graduated summa cum laude.
