Dr. Greg Wright grew up in Frankton, Indiana (near Anderson). He attended Frankton Jr. Sr. High School, graduating in 1991. During the summer before his junior year, Dr. Wright participated in a cross-country camp at Marian College (now Marian University) in Indianapolis. During some free time he played a competitive tennis match with the camp’s director. Dr. Wright dove for a shot causing his racquet to hit the ground and bounce back into his two front teeth, breaking them. With such severe dental trauma as a teenager, he thought his smile was ruined forever. Fortunately, Dr. Wright had a wonderful family dentist that was extremely personable, accommodating and understanding. During his treatment, which included two root canals and porcelain veneers, Dr. Wright not only remembers the outstanding patient care he received but also how much better he felt with his new smile. Because of this experience, Dr. Wright decided to pursue a career in the field of dentistry. He wanted to be able to recreate that same feeling of confidence for others seeking beautiful smiles.
After high school graduation, Dr. Wright attended Indiana University-Bloomington for his undergraduate degree. After three years, he received early admittance to Indiana University School of Dentistry. In 1998, he graduated from IU School of Dentistry with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree and accepted an offer from his future father-in-law and dental mentor, Dr. David Bailey, as well as Dr. Joseph Bailey, to begin practicing at David E. Bailey, DDS and Joseph M. Bailey DDS, PC in July of that same year.
In 2002, Dr. Wright bought into the practice and its name changed to Bailey, Bailey & Wright Family Dentistry. After practicing for more than 20 years, Dr. Wright still maintains the same mantra, “Treat everyone like family.” Dr. Wright enjoys getting to know his patients and their families and he is extremely proud of the large patient base he and his partners have generated and sustained over the practice’s history.
As a member of the American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association, and Indianapolis District Dental Society, Dr. Wright is committed to the values of professional dentistry. He is a family and cosmetic practitioner with years of experience utilizing InvisalignⓇas a means to properly align teeth without the use of metal braces.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Wright has a passion for physical fitness and sharing that with his family. He enjoys being outdoors, running, hiking (especially in National Parks), IU athletics, and spending time with his wife, Charron (Dr. David Bailey’s oldest daughter), and three children, Conner, Logan, and Morgan.
Over the years, Dr. Wright has enjoyed coaching his kids’ baseball, basketball and soccer teams, as well as helping them to achieve their individual running goals. He spends his evenings and weekends watching his kids play soccer and run in cross country and track meets. He is involved in the Boy Scouts of America, having served as an adult leader for both of his sons, as well as supporting them on their path to Eagle Scout. He also finds time to volunteer as a mentor through Fishers Youth Mentoring Initiative, and various ministries for his church.
In 2015, Dr. Wright accompanied other church members on a Dental Mission Trip to Guatemala. Together, they provided free dental care to a number of individuals in a poverty-stricken area. In 2019, he participated in a rigorous 10-day backpacking trip with his two sons arranged by the Boy Scouts of America and the Philmont Scout Ranch. Both of these experiences taught him the importance of conservation and not taking anything for granted.
