Dr. Bright was a good listener. He was courteous and wanted to make informed, effective decisions regarding what was/is best for me. I had used his diagnosis/prescriptive skills several years ago and look forward to having his expertise again.

Great experience! Explained everything clearly, kind and professional. First time to the dentist that I was relaxed and NO pain. Staff are great, too. Highly recommend Dr. Bright!

I found him courteous and extremely nice. He did everything he was supposed to do as far as my appropriate care. I would recommend him to my friends or family. The staff was absolutely marvelous. They were so helpful. I feel that dr. Bright has put me back on the road to feeling better and recovery from problems and issues that I've been having post cancer.
