About Your Dentist

Gulafroz Alwani, DMD

Dentistry is not expensive, neglect is.

My Mission

The trick to not growing old is to: Stay curious. Keep your teeth. Stay Hopeful. Do everything gracefully. As this quote says, I am proud to be the one who can get to the root of the problem. To help people, and to make them smile when they share their pain with me.
