Gone are the days of unsightly metal bands wrapped around every tooth and painful steel wires that were shoved into the bracket causing pain and discomfort as well as frequent visits to the orthodontic office.Today we bond low profile brackets to the teeth, so the brackets are much more comfortable. Dr. Engen uses high tech wires developed by NASA. These high tech “memory wires” are small and flexible wires which deliver a low, gentle force over a longer range of movement. As these high tech wires resume their original shape they bring the teeth with them. This allows for gentle movement of teeth with 6, 8, and sometimes even 10 weeks between appointments. This saves you from having to take time off of work, and taking the kids out of school excessively. This allows for more efficient tooth movement, decreasing treatment time and providing more comfort.
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.
