“I’ve been practicing in Utah for 30+ years … Long enough to lose my hair. I attended Utah University, completed dental school in Oklahoma and my orthodontic residency at Baylor — I’m red through and through! I enjoy the process of watching patients start and finish their treatment — I’ve been told I straighten not only teeth but minds too. I am the proud father to three doctors and have nine grandchildren that are even better!”



Krissi has been working with Dr. Jensen for 24 years! Krissi and her husband Jeff have two children that keep them happy and busy. Krissi grew up in Idaho. As a small child, Krissi had a horse that could count by tapping his foot on the ground and could also fetch his own saddle.
