About Nelson Avenue Dental

The Dentist

Dr. David Alfaro is a general dentist and prosthodontist, having trained at both Columbia University in New York and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Dr. Dave was first introduced to the beautiful city of Nelson by his wife, who was born and raised in Trail. He is proud to be a part of a strong community of local, small businesses here in Nelson.


This office is not affiliated with any corporate dental chains. 

Our Philosophy


A goal of good health is a lifestyle choice that takes commitment and motivation. Nothing we do as dentists, specialists or our teams, will be successful if we cannot motivate our patients to improve their oral health. 


Our first priority is the promotion of the health and well-being of our patients.


Our Location

We are located in beautiful Nelson, B.C. just steps from the shores of Kootenay Lake.


The dental clinic is nestled in a turn of the century home with ample free parking. It definitely has a country cottage feel!


Environmental Impact

Dental offices can have very large environmental footprints. From the chemicals and plastics we use every day, to the waste from sterilization wrapping and instrument packaging, we are major trash producers.


We have worked very hard to set up aggressive recycling and waste reduction strategies to minimize the amount of garbage that ends up in landfills, or in our oceans.


It has taken a lot of research and support from my suppliers to reduce my footprint. We only have this one planet!
