Meet Dr. Richard Mandel

Oral Surgeon, Richard A. Mandel, DDS


It is said that “Experience is a Great Teacher”. Dr. Mandel has been in practice here in the Santa Ana/Tustin area for over 25 years. Prior to that he taught Oral Surgery at UCLA School of Dentistry and practiced in Westwood for 9 years. His experience has formed his practice philosophy of offering excellent oral and maxillofacial surgical care in a warm, friendly and caring environment. He believe s that an informed, educated patient is one who can participate in his or her care and will be the most satisfied. He and every member of the experienced staff take the time not only to educate the patients but to get to know them as well. We pride ourselves in knowing that no matter how large or small the treatment, each patient receives the same quality of care. When a patient leaves the office, we want them to feel they received the best treatment possible. There is no substitution for “Patient Quality Care”.
