About Alford Family Dentistry
Alford & Alford DDS PA was founded in September of 2003 when Drs. Clay and Marija Alford purchased the established dental practice of retiring Dr. Larry Neal. While we continue the practice's original mission of providing high-quality, conservative dentistry for the entire family, we have incorporated the finest in dental equipment, technology, and current continuing education.
Alford Family Dentistry is currently operated by Dr. Clay Alford. Since the birth of the couple's sons in 2007 and 2010, Dr. Marija has been focused on the care and education of the two boys.
