About Dr. Spencer Torgerson

Dr. Spencer Torgerson brings a unique perspective to dentistry that comes from his years of experience in other professions. Before finding his passion in the dental field, he built custom homes for a number of years in the East Valley. The experience he gained being able to see a project from an idea all the way through to completion has been a valuable asset to practicing dentistry. He is able to relate with patients on a personal level across a variety of backgrounds.

Dr. Torgerson’s desire to pursue a career change to dentistry was fueled by a combination of personal medical issues and lack of empathetic doctors, as well as a desire to follow in his grandfather’s example as a selfless physician. 

He has always remembered a line from a poem which his grandfather wrote that was hanging in his medical office: “Help me that I may listen patiently, diagnose carefully, prescribe conscientiously, and follow through faithfully.”

Dr. T (as he is affectionately called by his patients) earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville. He is an active member of the American Dental Association. He loves to learn and stay on the cutting edge of technology. He has developed and improved several advancements in the dental field and currently holds two patents on dental devices. Dr. T enjoys sharing his knowledge with others in the profession and was an adjunct professor at a University. Nothing gives him more joy than being able to see patients completely change their disposition when their oral health has been improved.

Outside of the dental practice, Dr. T enjoys spending time with family and friends, golfing, being outdoors, woodworking, and remodel projects. He is pretty handy, and there are very few things he can’t fix or repair.
