Art, Science & Expertise

Jensen Orthodontic Arts believes that you should consider three major things when deciding on an orthodontist and an orthodontic treatment plan for you or your son or daughter: the doctor’s art, science and expertise in the orthodontic craft.

Art

Smiles are not one size fits all. The best plan for your smile must take into account what nature gave you! As a specialist in teeth, Dr. Doug Jensen considers factors such as the lips, facial proportion, bone structure, gender, ageing and wear on the teeth, jaw function and even how much the upper lip moves up during a laugh! Orthodontics is not a one-size-fits-all treatment — it is an art form that must be personalized. Working to arrange teeth, reshaping worn teeth individually or masterfully working with the various dental materials that are available is an art form.

Science

We rely heavily on our doctor’s experience and artistic sense, but we consider the bedrock of our practice to be what is called evidence-based care, the scientific basis for orthodontics and prosthodontics. All healthcare exhibits some level of uncertainty, but if we rely on what the best and brightest tell us within the scientific literature, then we can stay close to the state of the art. We then can achieve long-lasting, excellent results more commonly for more patients. Dr. Jensen is dedicated to following the latest evidence and mastering and teaching those advancements in orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry and complex reconstructions.

Expertise

Orthodontics is our specialty. Unlike orthodontics performed by a general dentist, Dr. Jensen is a dual specialist and has attended top accredited universities for both dental school (Baylor College of Dentistry) as well as for specialty training (UT San Antonio). He is a fully trained and Board Certified orthodontist as well as a prosthodontist. Dr. Jensen has been treating patients in private practice since 2007 in the McKinney and Frisco area and has the real experience necessary to truly understand the intricacies of orthodontic treatment.

The specialty of prosthodontics combines expertise in the diagnosis of complex dental issues — such as congenitally missing teeth, injury to teeth, years of wear and tear on the teeth or neglect — with great attention to detail in carrying out the dental treatment to correct these issues. From large-scale, temporary teeth that serve as a blueprint during treatment for the results, to the actual tooth or implant-supported, bonded porcelain restorations, such as veneers and crowns, Dr. Jensen has become highly skilled in the practice of prosthodontics and is dedicated to excellent treatment results through his many finished and documented cases.

Our whole team at Jensen Orthodontic Arts is thoroughly trained and eager to help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you have always wanted. Come visit our McKinney, Texas, office and see the difference that art, science and expertise can make!
