Meet the Team
Dr. Engel graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center, at Houston Dental Branch in 2003. Dr. Engel loves practicing dentistry, so immediately after graduating, he began practicing dentistry in Arizona. In 2011, he moved to the Sacramento area, where in his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife and six children.
When Dr. Engel is out of the office, you can often find him working on projects around the home, playing sports, and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Engel is also an Eagle Scout and enjoys teaching the kids some of the skills he has learned over the years.
Dr. Engel enjoys giving back to the community when possible. When located in Arizona, he sat on the Advisory Board for Mesa Community College Dental Hygiene Advisory Board.
