Dr. Mark W. Wright
Dr. Wright has been practicing dentistry since 1997 when he opened his first dental 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, and in 2019, he started designing and milling his own crowns, bridges and dentures in office.
Dental Care Philosophy
Treating patients like members of the family is the guiding philosophy behind Dr. Wright’s standard of care. Patients with special needs or 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 a 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 built a Super Cub airplane and enjoys flying it around our beautiful surroundings.

Erin has always had a passion for helping people. She goes above and beyond to help patients feel at home in our office and loves being part of the process of creating smiles. It is always amazing to hear about how much the team has touched their lives for the better! As our dental office manager, she strives to constantly help the team learn and improve in every aspect of their positions, maintaining a high level of efficiency. Erin grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has four very active kids, who are her world. In her time off, she enjoys bike riding, home projects (with the help of YouTube) and kayaking. She also enjoys any new adventure that she can conquer with her kids.
Front Office Coordinator
MaKayla is our amazing receptionist. She helps assist our valued patients in understanding their treatment or questions about insurance. She goes above and beyond to build warm relationships that last over countless appointments! MaKayla grew up in Filer, Idaho, and then attended ISU for two years. She came back and recently married the love of her life. She has three dogs, which are her babies. She enjoys spending her free time doing home projects fixing up her new home, spending time with her family, camping and going on adventures.
Meg grew up in Filer, Idaho. She is the newest member of our office family and the lead dental hygienist. She married her best friend, Grant, in 2018. Grant made Meg an instant mom five years ago to her three little besties. She is also an obsessive dog mom to her Vizsla, Cabela. Meg started her college at Utah Valley University which brought her back home to CSI to finish her pre-reqs for her first degree in biology. She was then chosen third out of 65 candidates in her dental hygiene class at Carrington College-Boise, where she received her degree in applied science in dental hygiene. A dental office is not usually a person’s favorite place to be, and she recognizes that. She uses that fact to motivate herself to become the best hygienist possible in order to create honest, trustworthy relationships with her patients. Making her patients feel heard, safe and like a priority is her main goal for every appointment. When she is not in the dental office, you can find her sitting in a hunting blind, hiking a mountain, working out at the gym, coaching her girls’ sports teams, and most likely frustrated on a golf course somewhere.
Jessica has been part of our team for almost four years now. She started out as our sterilization technician and quickly moved up the ladder to dental assistant within the first year. She is very sweet and gentle with all of our patients and has a warm smile and positive attitude. These attributes make her a great asset to our team. Jessica grew up in Hagerman, Idaho, and she and her husband have a teenage daughter. She is a huge animal lover and has two dogs and two Maine Coon cats. She is very creative and enjoys painting. She enjoys softball and is her daughter’s number one fan.
Kecia started working at our office as a sterilization technician in November of 2018 and then cross trained to become an amazing full time dental assistant. She really enjoys being able to help each patient feel informed and comfortable throughout their visit, and she has a superpower of putting even the most anxious patients at ease. She grew up in Wichita, Kansas, and moved to Twin Falls six years ago. She became an avid and skilled rock climber shortly thereafter. She looks forward to getting married to her fiance in November and wants to raise a family here in the future. She loves hiking in Hailey and drinking Dutch Bros like it is going out of style.
Shasta is our fantastic sterilization technician. What she loves most about her role at the dental office is the chance to constantly learn new ways to help improve our back office! She is a valued member of our team. Shasta grew up in Dietrich, Idaho. She has a husband of over 10 years and two daughters. She grew up on a farm, loves spending time with her family and friends, and enjoys the outdoors. In the cold season, getting lost in a good book and playing board games are her favorite pastimes. Her daughters are her biggest supporters, and she is theirs. She loves watching them compete in dance and grow in all things they do.
