Continuing education at our office

Dr. David Engen and Dr. Rudolf Hahn are big advocates for continuing education. Here at Drs. Engen and Hahn’s office we are proud to say that we are continually going to meetings to stay current on all of the latest technical advancements that dentistry has to offer.

In fact, our entire office recently completed an Advanced Life Support CPR class, as well as our annual course on the health and safety of our patients and staff in the dental office. We also meet quarterly for emergency medical training.

Both doctors host several lectures each year where they provide complimentary educational programs related to current issues that are relevant to our local dentists and their staff. Dr. David Engen is the director of the Spokane Study Club. This elite group of dentists was formed over twenty-five years ago. The members meet at least eight times a year to plan treatment cases, mentor other dentists and bring in world renowned speakers to provide these doctors and their office staff with the latest and best products. They also demonstrate new techniques in advanced dentistry.

Dr. David Engen is also the co-director of the Inland Northwest Dental Hygiene Study Club. This is a group of 115 registered dental hygienists who meet several times a year for academic and hands–on training. They learn about new techniques and products available, as well as keep up-to-date on the latest in prescription drug recommendations and interactions.

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.

Due to the severity of my dental needs, my regular dentist referred me to Dr. Engen’s office. Being referred to a periodontal specialist is not something I would wish upon anyone, and it was difficult going to another dentist. However, from the minute I entered their office I was greeted by professional, friendly staff members who acknowledged me with a warm smile and a pleasant, cheerful welcome. The doctors and hygienists demonstrated a high level of expertise and technical competency by effectively communicating the options available to address my dental needs. Each and every staff member I encountered, from the receptionist, to the doctors are extremely dedicated to creating a long term relationship with each one of their patients, including taking the time to educate each patient about oral hygiene. The staff at your office works harmoniously, cooperatively and effectively as a team to make your time with them as productive as possible. I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking resolution to any dental issues and be assured you will be pleasantly surprised with your time with them.
