Meet our very own, super awesome Dr. Ralph Dolfi.
Most of the time you get a boring bio discussing education and training (don’t worry, we still provide that for those of you interested); this is more of a spotlight on the man behind the white coat.
Dr. Dolfi has been married to his wife, Karen, for 35 years this coming October. Yes, you read that correctly, THIRTY FIVE YEARS! They have 3 wonderful children, all of whom have graduated from college and live in various areas of North Carolina.
Dr. Dolfi is an avid cyclist, both on road and trail riding. He and his family enjoy skiing and visit Colorado every March for a traditional ski trip. They have also travelled to the wine country in California and Oregon numerous times. His son and daughter-in-law have a 1 year old, who is Dr. Dolfi’s first grandchild. They all are also hometown fans of the Carolina Hurricanes.
When asked what he has to say about a 35 year career as a dentist, he said, “My thoughts on 35 years in dentistry – find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life – I am so fortunate!”
Professionally, Dr. Dolfi graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1979. He was in practice in Hillsborough for 16 years prior to joining our office. He has served as an adjunct professor at the UNC School of Dentistry and has received advanced training at various cosmetic studies programs throughout his career. As well as being in a private practice, Dr. Dolfi is currently a clinical instructor for Six Month Smiles. He teaches dentists from all over the country to help their patients smile with confidence.
