Dr. Ron Jurgensen DDS, MDS, MAICS
When he is not overseas working with the poorest of the poor, he is involved locally with support organizations here in the U.S. The public may not know Dr. Jurgensen, but the homeless community does.
Dr. Ron Jurgensen comes from a diverse background, and is a self made man, having been raised in the suburbs of Long Beach, California. In a ground breaking book by Dr. Stanley Mutunga, “No Longer Forgotten”, Dr. Jurgensen was quoted as saying “I never knew why I became a dentist until I started doing relief missions. Today, instead of looking forward to a two week vacation sitting on a beach somewhere with an “umbrella drink”, I now look forward to going into unreached areas and providing immediate relief from pain.”
