Man 1: Dr. Andrew Mortensen has been serving patients in Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, and all of Orange county for thirty plus years, in all aspects of dentistry. In that time he has seen and been a part of the many dramatic changes that have taken place and have improved the overall patient dental experience today. Dr. Mortensen: Over the years I've seen what works and what doesn't work. I have a lot of patients come to me from other dentists and they say, "Well, why didn't this work?" And I've been there, done that. Man 1: In fact, Dr. Mortensen can give you five reasons in exactly six seconds why dentistry as a whole is so much better today. Dr. Mortensen: Because it's faster, better, easier, less painful, and it lasts a long time. Man 1: He should know. You see, Dr. Mortensen is one of the most talented and skilled cosmetic dentists in all of Southern California and around the country. Woman 1: The thing I like most about Dr. Mortensen is his patience and his attitude and his desire to be a perfectionist. Woman 2: I would recommend Dr. Mortensen because I think that once you come to him you will never go to another dentist. He's just that great. He's terrific. Man 1: Dr. Mortensen has not only won the best of Orange County People's Choice Award for being the best dentist in Orange County, he's also been trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute. He's also one of only about three hundred dentists in the world who is officially and accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. That means, among other things, that he chooses to take three times the amount of required continuing education every year. What does that impressive certification mean for his patients? Dr. Mortensen: I am a true cosmetic dentist. When I say I can do some nice porcelain veneers or a smile makeover, I've proven, through rigorous testing that I can do that for you. And I've done thousands of cases, so I know what I'm doing. Man 1: He not only knows what he's doing, he also has the very latest state-of-the-art dental equipment like digital x-rays, lasers and more to help him perform a wide variety of procedures, ranging from porcelain veneers and full mouth reconstruction to the many other services you see here. Dr. Mortensen: I really try to stay on the cutting edge of technology because that makes my life better, easier, and it makes the patient's life so much better because I can do a great job with the best materials and the best techniques. It's a much more pleasant experience for the patient, and the results are awesome. Man 1: Providing an awesome and comfortable dental experience for patients who suffer from dental anxiety is standard procedure for Dr. Mortensen and his team. It's something they see and successfully treat on a daily basis. Man 2: My anxiety on dentistry in general was so severe that I would lose sleep days prior to just a simple cleaning and a checkup. Man 1: Mike and the other patients who in the past have suffered from dental anxiety credit Dr. Mortensen's honest approach, his demeanor, his friendly staff, and of course, his use of sedation dentistry for their newfound, no fear approach to going to the dentist. Man 2: It is a great, great method to use. I was totally, totally happy with it. Man 1: Believe it or not, happy patients are the rule, not the exception at this outstanding Fountain Valley cosmetic dental office. And it's all thanks to Dr. Mortensen and his team who not only love what they do, but who they do it for. Dr. Mortensen: I've been very fortunate to choose a career that has been exactly the right career for me. I've loved it since the day I started dentistry. I'm not in dentistry for the money; I'm in dentistry because I love what I do. I can't see myself doing anything else because I found my niche. This is what I love. I love the people. I love my staff. I love the technical part of it. I love being an artist. I love creating smiles. Everything about it I love.
