Dr. Jeff Wright is the younger brother of Dr. Greg Wright. They, along with their sister Kim, grew up in Frankton, Indiana and attended Frankton/Lapel Community Schools from grades K-12. Dr. Jeff attended Leach School and graduated from Frankton Jr/Sr High School in 1999. After high school graduation, Dr. Jeff began his dental school prerequisites and undergraduate coursework at Indiana University-Bloomington. Although the brothers are seven years apart, they have always had a close relationship. Dr. Greg would often mentor Dr. Jeff on his career path during Dr. Jeff’s high school, college and dental school days.
Dr. Jeff had always been interested in healthcare, but having an older brother that successfully graduated from dental school and started a career at David E. Bailey, DDS and Joseph M. Bailey DDS, definitely inspired him to take a closer look at dentistry.
During his time at IU, Dr. Jeff became an avid cyclist, training and riding in the Indiana University Student Foundation Little 500 race for his fraternity from 2000-2003. In 2003, Dr. Jeff was accepted to the Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis, and graduated in 2007 with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Dr. Jeff began his career at Bailey, Bailey & Wright Dentistry in Indianapolis, working alongside his brother Greg, Dr. David Bailey (his brother’s father-in-law) and Dr. Joseph Bailey. In 2010, Dr. Jeff bought into the practice and its name changed to Bailey & Wright Dentistry—a more simplistic approach that still represented the names of both sets of brothers. As a new partner and co-owner, Dr. Jeff wanted to focus on adding additional treatment options for patients, particularly implant placement and restoration.
Dr. Jeff has 14 years of experience placing and restoring dental implants. Whether it be a single tooth replacement or a full mouth restoration, he is very pleased to offer this treatment choice as a superior option to patients missing one or more teeth. With dental implants, a new smile is always the end result, so a great deal of accomplishment for Dr. Jeff is knowing a patient’s confidence is restored when treatment is complete.
Dr. Jeff is a member of the American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association, and Indianapolis District Dental Society.
In his free time, Dr. Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife, Andrea, and their two children, Hudson and Landry. Dr. Jeff enjoys traveling, running (he has completed over 10 mini-marathons and would like to do a marathon one day), boating, cycling, the Indianapolis 500, IU athletics, and cheering on the Indianapolis Colts. Dr. Jeff also appreciates a good card game, crossword puzzle, board game or jigsaw puzzle.
