About Dr. Carmen Every-Degel

Dr. Every-Degel was attracted to the profession of dentistry for two primary reasons. She has a natural talent and love for working with her hands, and a childhood experience left a strong impression about the value of quality dental work. Growing up in Aruba, Dr. Every-Degel lost a permanent tooth when she was quite young. Bothered by the gap in her smile, she also became increasingly embarrassed by noticeably crooked teeth. She felt self-conscious about her appearance, often hiding her smile behind her hands.

Her mother’s decision to take her in for braces and additional cosmetic dentistry treatments was a tremendous catalyst for change. Dr. Every-Degel was able to experience first hand the transformation and boost of confidence that can be achieved with targeted dental treatment.

At the age of 19, Dr. Every-Degel moved to the U.S. to pursue her education. After attending college at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey, she went on to pursue a graduate degree at Georgetown Dental School in Washington D.C. It was in dental school that she met her now husband and business partner, Dr. Clifford Degel. The Degel family, including three daughters, enjoys traveling to the beautiful island of Aruba regularly for vacations. Dr. Every-Degel also enjoys tennis, scuba diving, and golf.

A Fulfilling Career

Working as a team, Dr. Degel and Dr. Every-Degel took over the Astoria Dental Group practice in 1990.

Throughout my life, my dental journey has been difficult, painful, and has caused me a lot of anxiety. I am very happy to have found Astoria Dental Group – everyone has been so kind and have taken the time to explain everything to me thoroughly and make sure I am comfortable.

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week. Their flexibility in scheduling and acceptance of various insurances make it hassle-free. I’ve been a loyal client for years, personally attended to by Dr. Carmen. She’s not only super nice but also patiently listens, possesses extensive knowledge, and most importantly, operates with utmost integrity – you can trust them without a doubt.
