Douglas E. Jensen, DDS, MS
You could call Dr. Doug Jensen an artisan in the dental field. Here’s why: After obtaining his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University and his dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry, he began extensive, specialist-level training within the field of prosthodontics at UT San Antonio. This top-notch program demanded sophisticated treatment planning and refined hand skills. While there, he combined old world dental craftsmanship with various new technologies. Also ingrained in him was the concept of interdisciplinary care, or working together among professionals to provide the absolute highest level of treatment appropriate for patients.
As he worked with other specialists, Dr. Jensen became interested in orthodontics as a means to properly rehabilitate the teeth, muscles, and joints. He was subsequently motivated to seek training in a second specialty, also at UT San Antonio. Now Dr. Jensen is one of about 15 doctors in North America with a dual specialty in orthodontics and prosthodontics. Additionally, he is a board-certified orthodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics—a distinction that fewer than 20% of practicing orthodontists actually achieve.
Dr. Jensen now dedicates himself to following, mastering, and teaching the latest advancements in orthodontics, aesthetic dentistry, and complex reconstructions. Through his education and real-world experience, he has become accomplished in the art of beautiful smile design. But really, the skills it takes to do what he does is something that he has cultivated since he was a young kid.
Dr. Jensen has also been involved in research related to the utility of the latest dental 3D imaging technology: Cone Beam Computed Tomography. He has been consistently active in organized dentistry, including the American Association of Orthodontists, the American College of Prosthodontics, the North Texas Dental Society, and in local study clubs consisting of like-minded, quality-oriented doctors. He routinely works with like-minded dentists to design treatment plans best suited for mutual patients.
Despite his extensive training and experience, Dr. Jensen practices with an easy going demeanor, relating well to children and adults alike. This results in a blend of good-natured fun as well as technical talent and know-how. Patients quickly realize that he truly cares that they are treated with respect, compassion, and with the best possible result that fits their situation. It is not uncommon to find him about the office taking extra time as needed to exceed the expectations of those in his care. He truly gets excited about a first-class treatment outcome and, just as importantly, a great patient experience.
Dr. Jensen has been practicing in the McKinney/Frisco area since 2007. In order to provide an improved atmosphere of technically exceptional care as well as a place to brighten your day, he has now established a new office: Jensen Orthodontic Arts. He is excited to announce that it is now open to treat new and existing patients and welcomes orthodontic patients of all ages with no “project” too great or too small. This is where he excels.
A few other things to note–When Dr. Jensen is not pursuing his professional passion, he can be found spending time with his wife of 19 years, Cherie, and his five year-old daughter, Liberty. He earned his private pilot license when he was 17 years old and has been flying ever since. He also loves pursuing his passions in DIY home projects, automobiles, pistol shooting, music, and photography. Check out the photos on this website. He took every one of them! Also, he grew up tap dancing. He sings baritone in a choir called Millenial Choirs and Orchestras (MCO). He enjoys outdoor activities such as running and other sports, nature, and scouting (he is an Eagle Scout). He continues to work with younger scouts starting with Webelos. He is also quite active in service to his church and its related commitments. With all of his interests, he is quite able to relate to kids and adults alike.
“What I love to see is every patient accurately informed about their smile and teeth in a sincere, honest setting. Then, I want them taken care of properly, so they are feeling confident that the doctor is behind the scenes, organizing an elegant, individualized plan for them and is fussing over the details. We’ll take care of your specific dental needs and wants, whatever your age or level of difficulty of the problem.”
