Gary WrightThis past summer, Gary J. Wright, D.D.S., FAGD, fulfilled a career goal to become a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry (FACD). This is a designation that only 7% of general dentists in Texas achieve during their careers. A graduate of the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, he owned a private dental practice in Austin for 20 years before deciding to go into academic dentistry. 

Dr. Wright is currently a member of the faculty at Austin Community College. He is the Dental Consultant for the Department of Dental Hygiene and Course Director for Radiology, Anatomy and Dental Materials. He also is a guest lecturer on local anesthesia and performs diode laser training for students and faculty. In addition, he serves as the Radiation Safety Officer and the ECC/AED Officer. Dr. Wright cites his career at Austin Community College as his inspiration to complete the extensive requirements to become an FACD.
