Most people don’t love visiting the dentist -- that’s no secret at all. But the thing is, taking care of your smile with routine checkups and cleanings doesn’t have to be unpleasant. It just takes finding the right dentist for you and your loved ones!
At Advanced Dental Care, we have worked hard to create a warm and welcoming environment where everyone can feel at ease. Here, you will find all the treatments you and your loved ones need to enjoy excellent oral health -- all with a relaxed, comfortable approach that you will appreciate. Keep reading to learn more about how what we offer is different from the rest!
When you come into Advanced Dental Care for the first time, we will start by collecting all of your personal information and then sitting down for a thorough chat about your oral health, any particular needs you have at the moment, and what you would like to achieve over time. Perhaps you are simply interested in partnering with a dentist for excellent preventive care, or maybe you would like to explore your options in tooth replacement or cosmetic dentistry. For those and a multitude of other needs, we’ve got you covered!
After this initial chat, we will take X-rays and begin the cleaning and checkup. Your hygienist will remove all plaque and tartar buildup and check your gums for evidence of deep periodontal pockets, which indicate gum disease. Once this portion is complete, Dr. Jorgenson will examine your teeth for signs of cavities, worn dental work, teeth grinding, and other oral health hazards. Based on this information, we will plan on a time for you to come in again. If nothing requires follow-up attention, that means it’ll be time for a checkup and cleaning in another six months.

This will also help us streamline your check-in process and welcome you back to meet our dentists in record time!
Our goal is to provide you with the best possible experience on each and every visit to our office. To achieve this, we spend a lot of time preparing for your appointment and ensuring we have the appropriate staff available for you. Your appointment time is reserved just for you and your provider. If you can believe it, some offices double and even triple book appointments in case someone doesn’t show, but we would never do that to you!
Appointment reminders are sent via text or email:
All appointments must be confirmed 24 hours in advance or are subject to cancellation. We will attempt to contact you by phone, text, and/or email. If we cannot confirm your appointment, we will have to remove it from our schedule so we can see another patient who has been waiting for an appointment.
If for any reason you need to change or cancel your appointment, you must notify us at least 48-hours prior to your scheduled appointment time. Any changes made less than 48 hours and/or no shows may result in a $50 fee.
Additionally, if you arrive more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled appointment time, we will do our best to accommodate you, but will likely have to reschedule the appointment and the $50 late fee may apply.
If there is anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable or satisfactory, please do not hesitate to let one of our knowledgeable and friendly staff members know!

Many patients don’t currently have dental insurance coverage – but that doesn’t mean they can’t save on important oral healthcare here in Costa Mesa. Our Be Smile Smart Plans offer free biannual dental exams and cleanings, all of the necessary X-rays, discounts on many restorative procedures, and other valuable benefits for a flat, no-strings-attached fee. Both individual and family plans are available!
Many of us simply don’t have a big enough budget to accommodate the cost of a big treatment plan all at once. That’s where affordable financing comes in here at Advanced Dental Care. We work with several trusted, third-party lending companies in order to offer a variety of different plan lengths that come with little to NO interest. In-house options are also available on a case-by-case basis!
