Dr. Kelsey Wright was born and raised in Bartlett, TN. At the age of seven, Dr, Wight decided to pursue a career as a dentist. She loves the opportunity dentistry provides to blend artistry and medicine. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and psychology from Union University and received her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry. After dental school, Dr. Wright completed the Virginia Tech General Practice Residency, a hospital based advanced general dentistry program. She received advanced training in all areas of general dentistry, treatment of medically compromised patients and patients with special needs, treatment of patients with head and neck cancer, and hospital dentistry. During her time at Carilion Clinic, Dr. Wright had the pleasure of serving on the Cleft & Craniofacial Team treating infants and children of all ages with cleft lip and/ or palate.
During her free time, Dr. Wright has enjoyed volunteering with organizations such as Remote Area Medical and the Midsouth Mission of Mercy which provide free dental care to those without access to traditional dental treatment. She also enjoys baking, crafting and spending time with family and her dog, Shamrock. She is excited to serve the wonderful people of Pulaski as part of the Owens Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team.
