Caytlyn Foy Bonura, DDS, was born and raised in Silver City, New Mexico. She attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. After four cold winters, she moved south to Dallas and attended Baylor College of Dentistry, where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery. After completing dental school, Dr. Bonura furthered her education and completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at the University of New Mexico. Here, she learned to perform advanced dental procedures, including implant placement and restoration, hospital dentistry (including sedation dentistry), and pediatric dentistry techniques.
Dr. Bonura is committed to the highest quality patient care. She strives to stay up to date on the latest dental advances to ensure patients have a comfortable experience and receive excellent care.

Outside of the office, Dr. Bonura enjoys spending time with family and friends, especially her husband, Shelby, and their dog, Maynard. She also enjoys cooking, traveling and watching sports, especially college football.
Dr. Gorthy has long been part of Dr. Bonura’s life. She began seeing Dr. Gorthy as a patient when she was just 8 years old. They also attended the same church. In high school, dentistry became Dr. Bonura’s focus. Dr. Gorthy opened his practice to her and allowed her to work as a chairside assistant during summer breaks so she could see what being a dentist entailed. She loved it! She continued working there over breaks for the next few years.
During dental school, Dr. Gorthy was a mentor, and he continues to be one today. When she graduated from dental school, Dr. Gorthy, Kathryn, and even Jolene were there to celebrate with her!
