Schmitt Dental’s Clarksville Team Members
Dr. Schmitt chose to follow the example established by his late father and entered the dental profession after obtaining his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville in 1985. His undergraduate degree came from U of L as well, while he was a diver on the swim team.

Hi, I’m Dr. Ken Engle, I’m from Indiana where I went to dental school, but have called Tennessee home for the last 3 years. I love doing almost any outdoor activity. and going to concerts.
Since I have lived here, I have adopted the Nashville Predators as my favorite sports team, and enjoy watching football in the fall. One great thing about dentistry is that it allows me to make personal connections with patients and watch families grown over the years.
I am very excited to be a part of Schmitt Dental, and look forward to providing excellent care to our patients and friends!
