Meet Dr. Greg Jorgensen, DMD
Being an orthodontist allows me to watch the transformation my patients go through when they improve their smiles with braces. I love the excitement and concern that each brings with them on their first visit. I see each case as a challenge to exceed expectations and help patients overcome their fears. I may not change the world with braces, but if I can change it for one child, it will be worth it!
A Strong Foundation
It was important to me to receive an education that would instill trust and confidence in my patients. I attended Washington University in St. Louis where I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. My orthodontic specialty degree was earned at the University of Iowa.
I pride myself on providing my patients with the most state-of-the-art treatment techniques and equipment. I average three times the state requirements for continuing education in order to ensure that my practice stays current with advanced orthodontic technology. I regularly lecture in the orthodontic department at University of Iowa helping new doctors learn and excel.
I am a proud member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Rocky Mountain Society of Orthodontists, the Albuquerque District Dental Society, and the New Mexico Orthodontic Association. I am also a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.
I am very involved with my church where I have served as a missionary (spending two years in Spain), a Sunday school teacher, a scoutmaster, a pianist, as well as many leadership positions. I am also active in high school athletics where I have provided mouthguards for over 18 years. I currently serve as the president of the New Mexico Society or Orthodontists and chairman of the Committee on Technology for the American Association of Orthodontists where I specialize in educating orthodontists nationwide about information technology (especially the use of social media).
My Family and Me
A native of Moberly, Missouri, I have lived in Albuquerque now for over 20 years. My wife Cheryl and I have been married for 29 years and have three children. Brian is a computer guru who writes code for PayPal. Brent is attending dental school at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. He plans on joining Jorgensen Orthodontics when his education is complete. Our youngest, Brooke, is attending college where she is majoring in marketing. In my free time, I enjoy bowling, SCUBA diving, flying radio control helicopters, snow skiing, working out, and sports photography. I also have a love for playing the piano, singing, and attending concerts (Boston, Rush, Maroon 5, etc.)
