Meet Issaquah’s Lumineers Expert, Dr. Jorgensen
Dentist, B.S., D.D.S., PC
Dr. Eric Jorgensen was born and raised in Houston, Texas. His family moved to Bellevue, Washington in 1972 where he attended Newport High School and along with his other studies was highly involved in Performing Arts and Young Life.
Dr. Jorgensen attended the University of Washington where he received his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. As an undergraduate, he volunteered at the Georgetown Dental Clinic, a branch of Neighborhood Health Centers, a Seattle based organization, providing quality dentistry to patients in low-income areas of South Seattle. During these undergraduate years he also experienced the joy of involvement with the Big Brothers of America.
Also at the University of Washington, Dr. Jorgensen attended and earned his degree of Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Upon graduation, Dr. Jorgensen moved back to his hometown of Houston, Texas in order to spend time with his family. He received his Texas license there and practiced in Houston for several years, both in private practice and for the State of Texas, but was drawn back to the beauty of the Northwest where he established his current private practice as a cosmetic dentist in Issaquah. While his practice quickly grew, Dr. Jorgensen was asked to return again to, and served as lead dentist at the Georgetown Dental Clinic, the same clinic he had volunteered at all those years before. It was during these early years that Dr. Jorgensen realized his “passion for compassion”, which is how he (and his dental team) still continue to strive to serve their patients in their dental office in Issaquah today.
Issaquah dentist, Dr. Jorgensen has been voted one of “America’s Top Dentists” by Consumer’s Research Council of America in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 and continues to increase his knowledge by regularly learning new continuing dental education principles and technologies that he feels will best serve his patients’ wants and needs, through general, family and cosmetic dentistry in Issaquah.
In his free time Dr. Jorgensen enjoys spending time with his wife, Rose, and their son. He enjoys music, cycling, backpacking, scuba diving, Husky Football, and just hanging out with family and friends.
Dr. Jorgensen is a long-standing member of the Academy of General Dentistry.
