Dr. Don Jorgetnson, D.D.S.Don Jorgensen, D.D.S.

Hello, I’m Dr. Don Jorgensen, Dr. J to my patients and colleagues.  I grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska.  I attended the University of Nebraska with emphasis on pre-dental studies and obtained my dental degree from the University Of Nebraska College Of Dentistry.  Following dental school I did a tour of duty with the U.S. Army, during which I was selected to do a one year General Dentistry Residency.

Between my army tour and my orthodontic residency, I taught at the Dental School at the University of Texas as a member of the General Dentistry faculty.  I was accepted to attend Louisiana State University School of Dentistry for a two year orthodontic residency, where I obtained my post graduate orthodontic degree.  Before moving to Colorado in 1983, I worked in private practice in Lincoln and taught part-time in the Orthodontic Department at the Dental School.

Throughout high school and college I worked with children, teens and adults as both a camp counselor and a Parks and Recreation coach.  It was then that I recognized the influence that positive mentoring has on children, teens and, frankly, all ages.   Combine that with my first-hand knowledge of how orthodontics boosts self-esteem and self-confidence, my career path in orthodontics was crystal clear.

Orthodontics has been my passion for over 30 years.   I’ve had the privilege of working with so many wonderful people and witnessing how smiles really do change lives.  I look forward to many more years of creating beautiful, healthy smiles!
