Bruce Bonafiglia, President
Bruce Bonafiglia, CDT,
President
Since joining the company in 1975 as an apprentice dental technician, Bruce Bonafiglia, CDT, has steadily charted BonaDent along a course of growth and modernization that has led to the laboratory’s reputation as one of the finest in the dental industry. Bruce became president of the company in 1986 when his father and founder, Angelo, retired. Bruce then opened a location in Melbourne, Florida in 1987 — which has seen continual expansion — and founded our sister lab, Danaren Dental Lab, in 2003. Now in the fourth generation as a family-owned business, the BonaDent family of labs continue to grow, proud to have served the dental community for over 65 years.

Angelo Bonafiglia
Angelo Bonafiglia, CDT, Founder
“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.
