Mark W. Wright, DDS, PA
Dr. Wright has been practicing dentistry since 1997, when he opened his first office in Twin Falls, Idaho. He is a graduate of the highly selective Creighton University School of Dentistry and completed studies in implantology at Brookdale Hospital at New York University. As a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, Dr. Wright is certified to administer Botox injections. Dr. Wright is committed to continuing education, which allows his patients to benefit from the safest and most advanced dental procedures and technology.
Treating patients like members of the family is the guiding philosophy behind Dr. Wright’s standard of care. Patients with special needs or with extreme dental anxiety turn to Dr. Wright because his practice is one of just a few in the area that offers IV sedation. In fact, helping patients overcome their dental phobias is one of Dr. Wright’s favorite parts of being a dentist. He is a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and has completed over 5,000 successful IV sedations.
A fifth generation Idahoan, Dr. Wright enjoys outdoor activities, and was nominated to become member of the Idaho Fish and Game Advisory Committee. He has also served as a board member of St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center for six years.
Dr. Wright is particularly interested in the field of aviation. With the help of his father, he is currently building a Super Cub airplane.

Normandi Brecht - Dental Hygienist
I graduated Carrington College with my degree in dental hygiene, and have been working for Dr. Mark Wright for almost 6 years. I enjoy getting to know all of my patients and making their visits enjoyable. In my free time I enjoy doing things outside and hanging out with friends.
Melissa Klucken - Front Office
I’m the mother of two beautiful girls. I work for our family farming/ranching business and work full time for Dr. Wright as front office staff. I grew up in Shoshone and moved to Boise to attend BSU. I love to travel and experience new things. Ultimately I love the farm life, and moved back to Shoshone to fulfill my dreams of country living, and raise my children on the farm. I like outdoor activities and spending time with my children and enjoying their activities, such as playing the violin, basketball, and dance.
I enjoy working in Dr. Wright’s office with his wonderful staff and getting to interact with his great patients daily.

I was born and raised in Jerome and graduated from Wendell High School. After graduation I moved to Boise and started my customer service lifestyle. Since then I've lived in Montana as well as North Dakota. In 2013 I gave birth to twin daughters. I moved back home in 2014 and had another daughter in 2015. If I'm not in the office you can usually find me on the softball field. I also enjoy shooting guns, golfing, hiking, spending time with my family and learning new things. I started at the front desk of Dr. Wright's office December 2017, and enjoy meeting and building relations with all of our patients.
