Meet Our Dentists 

If you are seeking dental work in the Queens area, it is important to trust your smile to a tea, pf passionate, experienced dentists. Operating as a husband and wife team allows Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel to exercise a unique approach to dental care for our patients in the greater New York City area. The duo works cooperatively with our close-knit team, and strives to treat each patient like family. This focus naturally complements our ongoing commitment to providing world-class care in a welcoming neighborhood setting.

Both our doctors pursue ongoing education to remain abreast of the most advanced techniques used in the field today, like the Prettau® Zirconia restorations available at our office. We never sacrifice quality care to increase efficiency, but we do respect our patients' time, and take measures to streamline your treatment from start to finish. Our practice features an on-site dental laboratory, and a comprehensive range of procedures, like dental implant placement and bone grafting. Providing these services in one location is convenient for our patients, and allows us to hold every stage of your care to a stringent standard.
