Dr. Jensen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jensen "Dr. James Dean Jensen attended Augustana College in Rock Island, IL, for his Bachelor of Science in physics. He completed his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Iowa in 1984. Then Dr. Jensen returned to his home state of Texas and attended Baylor College of Dentistry for his orthodontic residency and Master of Science. He decided to stay in the area and start his practice in Plano. Now, more than 30 years later, he is starting to see the children of patients he saw when his practice began. Over the years, Dr. Jensen’s philosophy has remained consistent: provide the highest quality of care attainable and do it in a way that is fun for everyone. He was recently rewarded when a young patient exclaimed, “This is the happiest place on earth!” Dr. Jensen has assembled a talented orthodontic team that allows him to deliver the most up-to-date treatment by the most comfortable means possible. He is always looking for ways to improve and attends more than 60 hours of continuing education every year.
