Personal Biography

Dr. Alfonso was first introduced to dentistry in 1995 when he helped his sister, Dr. Catherine Alfonso, as her dental assistant and office manager until she passed away to cancer in 2008. Because of his love, admiration, and deep respect for his sister, he also became a dentist, inspired by the way his sister touched the lives and hearts of her patients through her gentle and caring style of dentistry. Dr. Alfonso also enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, cycling, walking, youth ministry, listening to music, dancing, playing drums, and eating out with his wife, Beth, who is a nurse.
