Dr. Jeff Alford

Dr. Jeff Alford is a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon  who graduated from the University of Texas in Austin in 1999 with a degree in Biology.  He received his dental degree from the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. After completing his dental education he practiced general dentistry with his father in Texarkana, Texas.  In 2004 he began an oral surgery internship at John Peter Smith Hospital in Ft. Worth and in 2009 he completed his residency in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.  Dr. Alford has a special interest in the placement of dental implants including both metal and non-metal. Dr. Alford has a rare dual perspective when restoring the mouth using dental implants, drawing from the extensive surgical training he received while in Houston, combined with invaluable experience gained previously while working as a restorative and cosmetic dentist.    Dr. Alford draws on this experience to treat even the most challenging cases and to better communicate with your general dentist. You will achieve the most thoughtful and thorough treatment plan to maximize the most desired outcome.

We understand that oral surgery requires consistent vigilance in keeping up with the latest advances in knowledge, materials and surgical techniques.  For this reason, in addition to staying abreast of the latest techniques and practices through continuing education;  Dr. Alford maintains memberships in local, state and national organizations.

Dr. Alford and his wife Kelly have 3 children.  They frequently enjoy hiking and exploring the many outdoor wonders that the Texas Hill Country has to offer.
