 Regarding Reviews

We appreciate and incorporate the patients perspective to improve our care. With an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Biology and a Masters degree thesis entitled "Patients Perspective of Periodontitis", Dr. Engert is referred some anxious periodontal patients.  Our goal is to make everyone comfortable and to be part of the process of selecting care that will bring greater periodontal health.

Dr. Engert has completed in the range of 14,000 surgeries and thousands of patient visits. On occasion a visit may not meet expectations and a reasonable accommodation may be possible when a patient brings their concerns directly to Dr. Engert. We really appreciate your input and strive to improve.

 Insurance and health information processing:  It is most reliable when each individual assumes the responsibility to provide their own updates on insurance and health information for each visit. When patients ask us to contact other businesses for their insurance information it can get lost in translation. 

 After your visit we send a claim with our treatment plan and supporting documents, charting, radiographs, your birthdate and SS/ID number to the insurance address that you provide to our office. We are unable to provide insurance processing services without those details. Even with this information, insurance processing can get delayed. Our office works with thousands of plans. Some claims are unique with restrictions and requests for additional information and others don't fulfill expectations. We thank our patients  for their perseverance, patience and understanding.


Dr. Engert wants to know about your specific concerns and provide care in a style that meets your needs. Some options include working on smaller areas per visit or trying other anesthetic delivery systems including localized placement anesthetic gels.  An initial topical anesthetic like “Hurricane” is used and is listed to provide rapid anesthesia in 30 seconds.

 Staffing Availability:  

My office is staffed Tuesday though Friday to return your calls. Please feel free to call me on my cell phone and I will get back to you. In the rare instance when we do not return a call the same day it is most likely that I am out of cell phone range.
