Meet Dr. Alexander J. McGuiness

Dr. Carolina Giraldo

Dr. Alexander J. McGuiness graduated from Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. In dental school, he was viewed as an honorable member of the class and served on leadership as secretary representing and advocating for his peers. Prior to dental school, Dr. McGuiness received his Bachelor's of Science in Biochemistry from Stony Brook University with a minor in Jazz Music. Dr. McGuiness is a certified provider for SureSmile orthodontic treatment. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the Connecticut State Dental Society.


"I gravitated towards the path of dentistry due to the detail-oriented nature of the profession. I strive to listen thoroughly to the concerns, goals, and priorities of each individual to craft their unique smile using a patient-centered approach. I am appreciative of my patients' trust in me to provide them with comprehensive dental care."


Dr. McGuiness has performed in a myriad of musical groups, including the "Small Town Big Band" based in Cooperstown, NY and "The Stamford Standards" based in Stamford, CT. He hosts/participates in open mic/jam sessions throughout Fairfield and Westchester counties and loves incorporating music into dental visits starting with the acoustic guitar in the reception area for patients' use. When Dr. McGuiness is not strumming his guitar or in the office, he is most likely making memories with his wife, Dana.
