His passion is to create beautiful smiles that bring optimum oral health, renewed self-confidence, and lasting pleasure.

Dr. Engelsberg received a BA from the Carleton University in Ottawa and earned his dental degree from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine.

He is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Currently, he is taking the Maxi Implant Course at the New York University College of Dentistry.
