Dr. Philip S. Engel

Dr. Richard K. Stern
Dr. Richard Stern was born and raised in Brooklyn, where his childhood dentist inspired him to pursue dentistry. Eventually, during dental school, he was exposed to the oral and maxillofacial surgery specialty. After seeing the interesting procedures and challenges that oral surgeons encounter, he decided to expand his skillset and complete an oral and maxillofacial residency program.
Dr. Stern has over 18 years of oral and maxillofacial surgery experience, specializing in all areas of oral surgery, including dental implants, wisdom teeth, corrective jaw surgery, facial injury treatment, and more. Dr. Stern is the chairman of the Department of Dentistry at St. Peter’s University Hospital and is on staff at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. These hospital affiliations help patients in need of hospital or emergency room care.

Oral surgery is his passion, and he enjoys getting to know his patients and helping them solve their oral health problems.
Dr. Michael E. Stern
Dr. Michael Stern grew up in Brooklyn, and like his brother, he knew he wanted to go into a dental or medical profession at an early age. He was drawn to oral and maxillofacial surgery because of the skills and knowledge covered by the specialty. Through his training, he gained expertise in oral surgery, anesthesia, and general health, allowing him to treat a wide range of oral, facial, and systemic conditions.
Dr. Stern has been practicing for over 10 years, and he enjoys solving problems for his patients. The oral and maxillofacial specialty gives him the ability to treat more complex and challenging conditions, and Dr. Stern greatly enjoys providing patients with excellent quality care at Oral Surgery Group.
