Mark S. Jensen, DDS
Dr. Mark Jensen graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Kansas in 1984. He then continued his studies at the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with distinction in 1988. Following graduation, Dr. Jensen completed a three-year general practice residency with the United States Navy Dental Corps. During this time, which he found to be both rewarding and challenging, he worked primarily with Marines in the First Gulf War. He learned many of the skills he now uses every day by working with some of the finest clinicians anywhere.
After completing his residency, Dr. Jensen moved back to his hometown of Kansas City. In 1992, he purchased this practice from a retiring doctor and developed the theme of “Together, Dental Health for Life.” While Dr. Jensen has practiced dentistry in the area for more than 20 years, and his practice has grown tremendously, he has never lost sight of what has led to any success he has had: caring for his patients as best as possible.
Dr. Jensen has extensive training in several areas of dental care, including cosmetic dentistry and oral surgery. He also continues his education in dentistry on a regular basis, maintaining all of the required continuing education necessary for accreditation with the State of Kansas Dental Board. In addition, Dr. Jensen is a member of the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association, and Fifth District Dental Society of the State of Kansas. Furthermore, the practice is accredited by the Better Business Bureau of Greater Kansas City.
