Dr. Preston Alfred
Dr. Alfred grew up in Weston, WV, which is a small town located in central West Virginia. He decided to stay close to home to complete 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. During his AEGD training he continued to have a drive to pursue a career in surgery which lead to specialize in Periodontics. Not only was this an important time for him in his career but he also had the opportunity to meet his wife, Paola.
Dr. Afred and his wife love spending time with their two children. He enjoys following his Mountaineers during football and basketball season and giving his UT Longhorn wife a hard time whenever WVU prevails. Dr. Alfred is 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 has won awards for his research presentations and been published by the American Academy of Periodontology. He is a member of the Southwest Society of Periodontists, American Academy of Periodontology, and the Texas Dental Associations. Dr. Alfred has a pure love for treating patients whether those are his own in private practice or abroad on mission trips!
