Walking into Dr. Bright’s office can put a smile on the face of anyone needing braces. His waiting room includes a game booth where kids can unwind as they wait to be called. An enormous fish tank extends to the ceiling and a dozen or so finches make themselves at home in a large bird habitat. These extra touches relax nervous moms, dads, tweens and teens who depend on Dr. Bright for orthodontia.
“Teeth can be tricky,” says Dr. Bright, a long-time Katy resident. “The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic check up by age 7 for every child.” He has a special interest in interceptive orthodontics which involves taking a comprehensive proactive approach at an early age of 7 to 9 years old. “Problems like thumb sucking, early or late loss of baby teeth, mouth breathing and crowded teeth can lead to problems,” he advises. And he should know! His practice has fitted braces on hundreds and hundreds of Katy kiddos . . . and grown ups, as well. “We’re treating more adults with crooked teeth, crowding, jaw problems, overbites and underbites. Invisalign braces are popular with adults, but we also fit traditional braces.”
Dr. David Bright earned his degree in Biology from Trinity University.

As member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Southwest Society of Orthodontists, Houston District Dental Society, Texas Dental Association, and the American Dental Association he runs a truly caring practice.
In fact, patients in his chairs are treated to not only an array of school spirit from every high school, but also KSBJ music. He and his wife are very active in their church and their children’s lives. He enjoys jogging, sports, outdoor activities, and gardening.
