From wisdom teeth removal to dental implants, we are pleased to provide several oral surgery treatments to help restore function and comfort.

Dr. Andrew W. Engel was born in the grand state of North Dakota, but raised from an early age in Boise, Idaho. Dr. Andy moved to Oregon in 1988 where he finished high school and entered into the University of Oregon in 1990. In 1994, he graduated with a degree in General Science and a minor in Chemistry. Dr. Andy directly entered into the dental school at Oregon Health Sciences University and graduated in 1998.

Finishing early with requirements, he was fortunate to do extra studies/procedures at the University in full mouth reconstruction and oral surgery. In 1998 he moved to Bend, Oregon and helped establish Century Dental Group. Living Dental Health was created to solely incorporate Dr. Andy to his own practice. Due to a desire to learn and repeated patient requests, Dr. Andy has done extensive training in aesthetics, full-mouth reconstruction, implants, ClearCorrect, tissue and bone grafting surgeries.

We are so pleased to have found Dr Engel and his team! My sons had aged out of the pediatric dentist they had grown up with and it was time for all of us to get re-established. We have each had our turn in the chair and each experience was favorable. The entire team, from front desk to the back, is welcoming, compassionate, and caring. In particular, one of my sons has sensory issues and requires a little extra care and compassion. Again, the entire team was so gracious and made him feel comfortable from the beginning. He no longer fears going to the dentist, even for the fillings.

I recently had a wisdom tooth removed by Dr. Andrew. I have to say because of a previous tooth removal at another dentist office I was extremely nervous about having this wisdom tooth out. I opted for local anesthesia and Dr. Andrew did an amazing job with getting the area completely numb. I felt no pain at all and tooth was out in under 2 min. It was such a great experience. Thank you Dr. Andrew and Kaitlyn!

Dr. Andy and his team are seriously the best! Kate at the front office is very personable and a joy to speak with when I’m making appointments or paying a bill. They have worked with me and my husband on multiple treatment plans. Highly recommend!

Working in the medical field myself I see so much professionalism in this office. I had the opportunity to have my appointment with Nicole (dental hygienist) and she was very thorough and gentle with her care. I also had an amazing experience with Alissa (dental assistant) and Dr. Anne Scott as they carefully reassured me with all the details of my procedure. I would highly recommend choosing Living Health Dental as your dental office. It is more than just an appointment, they make you feel as you are one of them.
