Dr. Alfred grew up in Weston, WV, which is a small town located in central West Virginia. After graduating from Lewis County High School, he attended West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV and received his Bachelors of Science in Exercise Physiology. He then decided to stay close to home and finish his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) at WVU. During his dental training he became aware of all different aspects of his profession, and became passionate about the idea of replacing teeth that had been lost with dental implants. His passion to deliver the highest quality of treatment to his patients drove him to Houston, TX after graduation. Dr. Alfred completed a Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) at the University of Texas - School of Dentistry at Houston. He then applied the advanced techniques and practiced as a general dentist in the community of Parkersburg, WV. During his AEGD training and time in private practice he continued to have a drive to pursue a career in surgery which lead him back to Texas to specialize in Periodontics. Dr. Alfred returned back to University of Texas - School of Dentistry at Houston to specialize, earning his M.S. in Oral Biology and Certificate in Periodontics. Not only was this an important time for him in his career but he also had the opportunity to meet his future wife, Paola.
Dr. Alfred and his wife are both very excited to be joining the Mckinney Periodontics family, and are excited to be starting a family of their own. Dr. Alfred enjoys following his Mountaineers during football and basketball season and giving his UT Longhorn wife a hard time whenever WVU prevails. He has started the process of becoming a board certified periodontist and has a passion for research. His current research emphasis is on implantology and identifying factors that can increase the success of the treatment. He is a member of the Southwest Society of Periodontists, American Academy of Periodontology, and the Texas Dental Association. Dr. Alfred has a pure love for treating patients whether those are his own in private practice or abroad on mission trips!
