Tal D. Jergensen, D.D.S.
Dr. Tal D. Jergensen graduated third in his class, cum laude, from the Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University with his D.D.S. in 1989. He completed a one year residency at Mount Sinai in Hartford, Connecticut before moving on to Eastman Dental Center in Rochester, New York to complete his orthodontic specialty training, with an emphasis on Cleft Lip and Palate. He also trained how to use multiple treatment modalities and techniques including lingual braces, bioprogressive, functional orthodontics and surgical orthodontics.
Dr. Jergensen has been practicing orthodontics in Southern California since 1992. He opened his Hemet practice in 1993 and then opened the Temecula office two years later in 1995. We are proud to have many of the same staff members at both offices that started with him in the beginning.
He is an esteemed member of the orthodontic and dental communities as a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists and the Mt.
