Dr. Alex Daniele was raised in California but has been flourishing in the great state of West Virginia for the last 8 years, and now in Beckley for the last three. Having just purchased his first home last summer, he is happy to call Beckley his new home. Alex is a dentist working with Dr. Greg Harvey at Harvey Dental Studio. With a background in performance and an outgoing personality, Alex is thrilled to make this the best Dancing with The Stars yet. This “California Cool” dentist plans to bring a fresh new look to DWTS this year with many exciting fundraising ideas!
