I'm dedicated to providing my patients with quality, continuous care throughout their treatment, and enjoy getting to know each of my patients on a personal level as we work to achieve their best outcome.

I had a tooth extracted by Dr.Engel and he was great. He's very friendly. When we first spoke he made me feel very comfortable. During the procedure he was very gentle, very professional. I would definitely recommend Dr.Engel.

Met Dr Engel for the first time today and I must say he was very pleasant and kind with me including his staff. He accommodated me right away since it was an emergency and I had an abscess that had to be drained. He explained the procedure in detail along with the oral surgery that I will have in 2 weeks.I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Rauch as well some time back and he treated me w/ TLC too. I would highly recommend Oral Surgery Group P.A. and I look forward to seeing them in the future ??
