Alexa Engel, DMD, MS
"I have the best job in the world! I receive so much joy from my work. When a patient gets their braces off, they are like a new person – happy and confident! When you become a patient at Engel Orthodontics, you’re giving us the privilege of getting to know you and your family. It is such a rewarding gift to get to know our patients over the course of their treatment."
Dr. Alexa is an orthodontist that brings high energy and a gentle touch to the clinic. Adept at working with patients of all ages from seven to 80, her three focus points are improved aesthetics, patient comfort, and efficiency. Combining those principles with a positive outlook and a fun atmosphere is the recipe for a successful practice that can build long-lasting relationships with patients, their families, and the community.
