Dr. David has a wonderful chairside manner, just as his father did when I saw him many years ago. He made me feel very comfortable.
I would highly recommend Dr. Engen and his office staff to anyone whose child was apprehensive about having braces. Other than the high level of professionalism, I appreciate the down-play of cutsie-pie gimmicks for kids. He thoroughly explained everything to us right from the start.
Because of the internet information provided about his background and education, I feel I have a top level, up-to-date professional taking care of me.
State of the art care! I like the “get it right” attitude. After eight years I have not had one negative experience.

Dr. Engen was great! He explained my diagnosis and the procedure required thoroughly. I was even asked if I liked the colors of paint for the office.
