Your general dentist has referred you to our office because he/she believes you have either a specific periodontal concern that might require specialized treatment such as laser gum surgery or a more general periodontal condition which requires special attention.When you come into our office for the first time, you will be greeted by one of our front office staff. You should have received the initial paperwork in the mail. Please have this filled out prior to coming to our office. This will save you time when you get here.
Once you have been brought back to the examination room, we will review your medical history. Every patient will receive a comprehensive examination including a soft tissue and cancer screening exam from the doctor to determine the complete periodontal status of your mouth.
After the doctor has had the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate your records and X-Rays, you will meet one-on-one for a private consultation and discuss your proposed treatment options. We place great emphasis on educating our patients on the disease process as well as discussing different treatment options. This is your opportunity to ask questions of the doctor.
After your private consultation with the doctor, you will meet with our business office where we will answer any financial questions you have, check insurance coverage and schedule your treatment. There will be an examination fee for your initial visit.
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.
