Dr. Alex Catauro
Dr. Catauro was born and raised in Tecumseh. He went to St. Anne High School and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Windsor. Dr. Alex has always been interested in being a dentist, and is particularly drawn to the aspects of artistry, patient interaction, and health care services. He decided that dentistry was the right career for him as he has known and observed several local dentists and had a great experience with his own family dentist.
He attended dental school at the University of Sydney. There, he was awarded the Sydney Achievers’ International Scholarship, a 4-year scholarship based on his undergraduate performance and community involvement. Alex was voted class president every year he attended dental school, and after four years of hard work he was awarded a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.
Dr. Alex returned to Essex County to serve the community where he grew up. He has a preventative, dedicated approach to dentistry. He believes that dental health is a lifelong process and goal, and that home care is equally important to dental care. His favourite aspect of dentistry is aesthetics, and he loves seeing a patient become proud and confident in their smile. This inspired him to become a certified Invisalign® provider.
Dr. Catauro is the current President of the Essex County Dental Society and is also a member of the Canadian Dental Association, the Ontario Dental Association, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.
Dr. Alex comes from a close-knit Italian and Lebanese background. He has always upheld family and community values and always strives to demonstrate these values to every patient he meets. When he’s not practicing dentistry, Dr. Alex can be found spending quality family time with his wife and two daughters. He also enjoys old movies, old cars, old jokes, old friends, and new restaurants.
