I grew up in the city of Washington, DC and completed my pediatric internship in New Jersey and my dermatology residency in Michigan. Later, I completed one of the few pediatric dermatology fellowships in Baltimore. I have a special interest in treating skin conditions in infants, children, and adolescents, as well as laser treatments for certain birthmarks and acquired skin lesions. It is important that my patients know that I believe in treating them as I would like my family and myself to be treated.

What My Patients Say

I appreciate the good quality and ease of care, and good communication with Dr. Wright. - MH

I saw Dr. Wright for a suspicious mole; she did a biopsy that very day. She was amazing, [and the biopsy was] absolutely painless. She talked to me during the entire procedure and kept me calm. Wonderful doctor. - CN
