This experience has given him the skill and artistic nature to professionally and reliably create beautiful smiles for his patients. It’s his patients that can best tell the story of why his approach differs from others. “I’m a new patient of Dr. Jorgensen,”says local marketing professional Jim Hollenbeck. “I chose him not just for his background and expertise in a wide range of dental procedures. I was also impressed by his bio, which included a long history of non-profit work. The thought that anyone who cares enough to give back to his community must also be someone who would care about me as a patient. I was right. He is the first dentist that I have ever had that has made me comfortable with and confident in my dental care.” Non-Profit Work Dr. Jorgensen’s charitable giving background includes founding “Return A Smile”. This is a non-profit organization committed to helping those suffering from domestic abuse. He has served as a Board Member for both the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce from 1999 to 2003, and the Desert Aids Project from 2003 to 2009.
