The Art Of Orthodontics

These Interdisciplinary Dental Care Professionals Strive To Provide Highest Level Of Treatment For Patients

Bites. Balance. Bliss. Putting best smiles forward is the steadfast mission of a local, accomplished orthodontic team. 

Combining art, science and orthodontics expertise to improve the function and harmony of teeth is the medical magic conducted by Dr. Doug Jensen and professionals at Jensen Orthodontic Arts. Plus, they say they seek to make appointments to their office a best part of each patient's day.

"By design, our office has a slower-paced, friendly and fun atmosphere so we can support our patients and their dental objectives with attention to details. Every treatment room is private, and we use the highest quality appliances and techniques, which often result in shorter treatment times and fewer visits," he says.

Indeed, patient comfort and an inviting atmosphere starts in the reception area with a beautiful butterfly collection or other seasonal office décor spearheaded by Dr. Jensen’s wife, Cherie. Additionally, this team routinely hosts entertaining contests with prizes for patients.

"We handle everyone's dental situation as uniquely to address and treat. Many patients tell us they're happy to finally find a team they can trust and to know that the solution to their problem is readily achievable," Dr. Jensen shares. 

Dr. Jensen is an orthodontist as well as a prosthodontist. An orthodontist specializes in the biomechanics of bites/jaw movement, while a prosthodontist reconstructs worn, broken or missing teeth. Blending these two specialties creates wonderful results and super smiles, he assures. 

"Our goal is for patients to receive an accurate, honest assessment of their or their child’s dental condition," states the specialist who has been a licensed dentist since 2002, a prosthodontist since 2005 and an orthodontist since 2007. As a result of his 15 combined years of preparation, he has five additional years of hardcore training about advanced dental matters compared to primary care dentists.  

Specifically, Jensen Orthodontic Arts offers braces of various types, orthopedic jaw modifications, orthodontics appropriate to age, as well as emergency care. They also provide implants, dentures, specialty care and emergency prosthodontics care. 

Advanced technology and continuing education is important to fellow orthodontic care members at this office, as evidenced by them being registered dental assistants.

"We also offer low-visibility and invisible treatment options, such as clear braces, Invisalign clear aligners and lingual braces," notes clinical patient manager Marisela Morantes. "Flexible financial arrangements and this office's multiple family member discounts are popular with our patients, too."

Before being in private practice for the past 15 years, Dr. Jensen received his dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry. His specialist training began with prosthodontics at UT San Antonio, where he was a resident for three years who executed high-level training for complex treatment planning and refined hand skills. During this residency, he says he handled complicated interdisciplinary patients who often required orthodontics as part of their plan.

He then undertook a two-year residency in orthodontics, becoming the first dual specialist in prosthodontics and orthodontics to ever graduate from UT San Antonio. He's still currently one of only about 20 such professionals in North America with dual certificates in both specialties.

Dr. Jensen is a board-certified orthodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics—a voluntary distinction reportedly achieved by only 25 percent of practicing orthodontists. His accolades include Patients’ Choice Award Winner and D Magazine best dentist multiple years running. He is also recognized for his charity work with Smiles Change Lives program.

"Family, community and church are all of paramount importance to me," says the man of many skills and interests.

While Dr. Jensen was in college at BYU, he minored in the Korean language. He took a break from college and his own pursuits and served among the Korean people in Korea as a missionary for two years. "I gained a new respect for people from faraway lands, their language, their customs, and the reality that there are different cultures who look at the world differently than we do in America," he recalls. 

Regarding other interests, Dr. Jensen enjoys photography, and even offers personal photo sessions with his patients. Many of these faces are on display in the dental office and on the practice's website.

His mother was a piano teacher and taught him to play at a young age. He confides that he makes time to practice nearly daily and is sometimes asked to play for various reasons in church. He even sings with Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, an organization whose purpose is to soften hearts, improve lives and unite communities across America by creating beautiful sacred and classical music that praises God. He has performed in the Myerson Symphony Center in Dallas and even in Carnegie Hall in New York. 

As a teenager, he says he wanted to become a pilot. He earned his license when he was 17 years old and continues to fly whenever time allows.

Dr. Jensen lives in Prosper, and admits that finding a work/home balance can be challenging, but that “people business” should take precedence over nearly everything else in life.
