Dr. Bright became an orthodontic specialist because he is very passionate about orthodontics and its impact on people’s lives! As a hard worker with a genuine interest in helping others, he strives to build his business on a foundation of solid interpersonal relationships. He is a native Texan raised in a single parent home by his mother, a school teacher with a Master’s in Education. He grew up in a home built on strong Christian values, further strengthened by his mother’s insistence on the importance of hard work and a solid education. Growing up, he was never the kid with the perfect smile, which contributed to his interest in orthodontics as a young adult. Becoming an orthodontist has opened a world of opportunities for him, allowing him to create a loving, family environment for his patients while giving them what I did not have… “A BRIGHT, healthy, beautiful smile!” There is no greater reward for him than seeing his patients transform into confident, happy young men and women. He is blessed with the ability to serve his patients and give them the smiles they deserve. As a patient leaves his office on the day their orthodontic treatment is completed, it is an absolute honor for him to be on the receiving end of their gratitude. A new smile usually comes with a new level of self- esteem, and he likes to think he had a little hand in bringing about both.
I am extremely blessed to be where I am today, and I am honored to have my loving wife, Terri, by my
side. We are enjoying raising nine amazing children together, three of whom are adopted. We love living
life together and enjoy just spending time with one another. Christian family values are very important
to us, and we work very hard to keep a loving and happy home based on these principles.
Dr. Magness loves working with people of all ages and seeing how a beautiful smile can make such a big difference in his patients’ lives. As your orthodontist, it is his goal to provide you with an exceptional orthodontic experience, one that leaves you smiling for many years to come. He began his orthodontic career by earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and his Master’s Degree in Orthodontics from the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston. He focused most of his graduate training on providing passive expansion for young patients. Passive Expansion is the natural and gradual expansion of a narrow pallet to allow for crooked teeth to align more naturally. He became a board-certified orthodontist after completing his education. While he has completed all the educational requirements and training necessary to become an orthodontist, he continues to pursue educational opportunities through continuing education. Orthodontics is always changing and advancing with new technology and treatment procedures. He likes to stay current with the latest orthodontic advancements to ensure that his patients receive the most up-to-date treatments
When Dr. Magness is not at the practice, he enjoys spending time with his wife Sophie, daughters Merit, Noelle and sons Beau and Zane. His hobbies include spending time at his family farm in Bernardo, hunting, fishing, coaching his children’s sports.
