The Italian-style home is situated on the edge of Seneca Lake. Seneca Lake is the largest, by volume, of the glacial Finger Lakes of the U.S. state of New York. It is also the second longest, as well as the deepest lake entirely within the state at 618 feet deep. Seneca Lake is also a major wine industry region and Mr. Bonafiglia's property is located next to Ventosa Vineyards, a major winery in the state. The home also is directly across the lake from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, which together are a top ranked liberal arts college.
"Bruce Bonafiglia has been President at BonaDent Laboratories, Inc. since 1986. Mr. Bonafiglia joined BonaDent in 1975 as an Apprentice Dental Technician and steadily charted it along a course of expansive growth and modernization that has led to the laboratory's reputation as one of the finest in the dental industry. Mr. Bonafiglia purchased a two-technician dental laboratory in Indialantic, Florida in 1987 and within ten years both laboratories grew to over 200 people. In 2003, he opened Danaren Dental Laboratory. Throughout his personal and professional tenure, Mr. Bonafiglia remained steadfast in his commitment to supporting his profession, his community and his family. Specifically, he has been actively involved in the advancement of the dental industry for many years and maintains membership in Cal-Lab, an association dedicated to the development of dental laboratories across the country, the National Association of Dental Laboratories, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. By the age of 21, Mr. Bonafiglia earned the distinction of Certified Dental Technician and became nationally certified in ceramics and crown and bridge."
