“I truly believe that a smile can change the world and is the only Universal language of happiness. If someone can feel confident about their smile, I believe that, not only does their life get better, but those around them also feel the happiness being exuded. My goal in Dentistry is to help people get their smiles back so that they can confidently go out into the world.”
When she’s not at work, Dr. Torgerson loves cooking, baking, hiking, and petting as many dogs as she can.
