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.
It is our pleasure to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Please tell your friends and family!

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 ??

in Dayton, NJ |
Just a very cool Dr. to meet and work with. He really does a great job of explaining & performing the procedures while ensuring your full level of confidence. My sessions have been wonderful & all healing/ results to date have been spot-on. I really am looking forward to the rest of the journey and teamed with a great staff you do forget that you ARE going into SURGERY. Well Dr. Engel & the team truly makes the experience go very smooth. All the best guys and thank you. Highly recommended
