I have enjoyed working in the field of dentistry since 1986. I joined Dr. Engen’s practice in 1988 and I feel very fortunate to be involved with such a caring and professional group.I help run the day to day front office including scheduling, patient treatment coordinating and communication from our office to our referring doctors. I am also a surgical and orthodontic assistant which enables me to work one on one with the patients and really get to know them. In addition, I coordinate continuing education programs our doctor’s host including the Spokane Study Club. Being part of a team which improves smiles, betters patient’s oral health and boosts their confidence is very rewarding!I enjoy spending time with my husband, Alan and our son Joey (2006). We love to snow ski, camping and walk the beaches on the Oregon Coast. I treasure my time with family and friends. I have lived in Spokane my whole life.
My career in dentistry began when I joined the Engen and Hahn dental family in 2010 as sterilization assistant. Now as the receptionist, every day I have the honor of welcoming amazing people into our practice, scheduling their appointments, answering questions and coordinating their treatment with our referring doctors. I have the experience and knowledge of both the back and front office procedures and I love that!What I appreciate most about our office is the individual care we give to each person who walks through our door. I’m very proud to be a team member in a practice that provides a warm and inviting atmosphere, state of the art dental treatment, impeccable professionalism, education, humor and last but not least, group camaraderie. It doesn’t get much better than that! Every day is new and different from the last. I truly enjoy visiting and getting to know our patients.I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Washington State University. My family is very important to me. My husband George and I have been married since 1992 and have two amazing boys, Tyler (1994) and Connor (1997) who are both third generation Cougs! My free time is spent with my family and our pet dog, and outdoor activities like hiking and boating.

We all truly want the very best result for each and every patient!I enjoy spending time with my husband Jason and our children Cloe (2003), Layla (2009) and Cooper (2014). They keep us busy with soccer games and cheer. We spend a lot of time outdoors with our extended families barbequing, camping and boating on the lakes and rivers nearby.

I have been in the dental industry for the past 22 years. I started out as an assistant and then moved to the business office where I did the scheduling and the finances.

We are very compassionate about the outdoors: hunting, shed hunting (how our son got his name), fishing, hiking, camping all things outdoors we love it and do it.
I am lucky enough to be one of the newer members of the Engen, Hahn and Pizzini team. I have five years experience in general dentistry where I had the pleasure of assisting patients with their scheduling, insurance and billing needs. I worked in the banking industry for eighteen years prior to my years in dental. I look forward to getting to know you and assisting with your scheduling needs. I am excited to learn and grow with the Engen, Hahn and Pizzini family.
I have two grown daughters, one is a EWU college graduate and the other attends WSU. I love spending time outdoors with my family hiking, biking, camping or kayaking.
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.
