Angelo Bonafiglia, CDT


“I came to Seneca Falls in 1947 to attend a wedding, and never returned home to Philadelphia. I loved it here.” Angelo Bonafiglia opened his first dental laboratory in Seneca Falls in 1948. Angelo’s business grew steadily to where he opened a larger lab in 1954 in nearby Auburn, NY. Angelo received CDT certification in dentures, partials, crown and bridge, and ceramics in 1960, the first year that national certification took place. This coincided with the business continuing to expand and grow much as it does today. Angelo’s son Bruce bought the business from his father in 1986. At a sharp 83 years of age, Angelo continues to be intimately involved in nearly every aspect of the business.
