A native of Provo, Utah, Dr. Jorgensen studied biology at Brigham Young University where he received his bachelors degree. After working for a few years in a family business, he decided to return to his true love of science and combine it with his desire to serve and care for others. Dentistry more than fit the bill! He earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 1991. While in school he received numerous awards for clinical excellence in oral medicine, prosthodontics, and dental materials.
Upon graduation, Dr. Jorgensen completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at University Hospital in Salt Lake City where he gained an appreciation for the dental care of patients in delicate health. Upon completion of his residency, he entered public health services and practiced community health dentistry for more than four years. Both the residency and community health service gave him valuable experience that prepared him to successfully enter private practice.
Committed to a lifetime of learning, Dr. Jorgensen continually exceeds the minimum number of state- required continuing education hours every year. Since leaving dental school he has studied and attended courses in implants, dentures, crowns, bridges, root canal treatment, periodontal therapy, the use of modern dental materials and techniques, pharmacology, oral diseases and early oral cancer detection. Most recently he has taken advanced classes in the placement of Lumineers, and placement and restoration of mini implants and conventional implants.
Dr. Jorgensen and his wife, Jeri, are the parents of 5 sons and some wonderful grandchildren. Dr. Jorgensen is active in his church and has served in numerous callings including scouting and teaching. As a young man, he served a two year mission for his church in Venezuela where he learned to speak Spanish fluently. He enjoys kayaking in the great Pacific Northwest, walking his two dogs, and spending time with his family.
