She was concerned that there may be other health-threatening materials or procedures in dentistry and this led her to the Biologic/Holistic Dentistry field.

For the last 15 years, she has been paving the way in Biologic/Holistic dentistry, learning from pioneers all over the world. She has created the Total Care Dental Way, a patient CARE centric, health-focused method for treating dental and overall health.

We have been going to Total Care Dental for over 20 years. They make going to the dentist almost fun 😅. They really care. Dr. Michelle Jorgenson has created a dental practice unique from most others. They offer natural options and alternative ideas to give you the most choices for your individual needs. They offer many “state-of-the-art” procedures. I am confident they will be meeting our family dental needs for a long time.

I happened to hear a podcast by Dr. Jorgensen and had the feeling that I needed set an appointment. I was hesitant because I wasn't sure if insurance would cover much, if any. I am so grateful I followed that feeling, meeting Dr. Jorgensen has been one of the greatest blessings of my life! She is one of my new favorite people. She is extremely knowledgeable, personable, encouraging, and did not make any claims or promises but brought me so much hope! We scheduled surgery to remove infection from the space where my wisdom teeth once were. It was my missing puzzle piece, everything finally started to fit together! The fact that I had been struggling with various difficulties for 16 years began to make sense. During the time period between my first appointment at Total Care Dental and my scheduled surgery, my health significantly declined. I ended up at the emergency room a number of times. The severity of my difficulties were quite alarming, leading us to consult many doctors and specialists to try to piece together what was happening inside of my body. I boggled all the professionals. Many said my difficulties were a result of psychosis. Multiple doctors stated from CT scans that there was no infection in my mouth, no infection in my body. We even went to a maxillofacial surgeon who specialized in jaw surgeries to get a second opinion of the infection Dr. Jorgensen discovered in my jaw. He reviewed the same CT scan that Dr. Jorgensen reviewed and stated that my jaw was perfectly healthy, that the scans showed absolutely no signs of infection. We had trust in Dr. Jorgensen and her area of expertise and decided to follow through with the surgery, after all, she was the only professional who had a plan to help me. She had knowledge from her area of expertise and a plan for healing, not ending with surgery, but for 4-6 weeks afterwards to help guide me in caring for my body in a way that fostered healing. Aside from this being her profession, she truly genuinely desired to help me heal. Dr. Jorgensen was following me all through my health difficulties leading up to surgery. She was on speed dial when we were heading to the hospital and was such a support to my husband and I. She also recommended some additional monitoring during surgery due to my physical decline. The team at Total Care Dental put every effort into making sure I was safe during the procedure. Surgery was a success! I was well cared for and felt better immediately following. All of my other physical difficulties became non-existent after surgery. The surgeon, Dr. Mishler, checked in on me for days following. I came into the clinic for additional IV antibiotics and Vitamin C, Dr. Mishler took extra time to check in on me and see how I was doing. Both Dr’s Jorgensen and Mishler made the effort to connect with me while they were out of town to ensure I was doing alright. I cannot say enough about the care and concern shown to me! The biopsy of the infection removed from my jaw was extensive. My numbers were above and beyond the serious risk levels of infection. There was great reason for concern and the need to have the infection removed. I have learned that our bodies truly are incredible, they are designed to heal! If we are struggling we may lack the tools we need to fine tune our bodies in order to foster healing. If we fail to listen to the ways our bodies are speaking to us, our bodies may not be capable of speaking any longer. Hope for healing is never lost! Not every doctor has the answers we need, specific to our situation. I have been to countless doctors throughout the years who have stated that I am perfectly healthy, perfectly fine, all the numbers from every test are in working order, yet I have been very far from being healthy, very far from fine, very far from functioning optimally. Trust your instincts more than you trust any professional, after all, you are capable of being the greatest professional of your body.
