Dr. James W. Sorensen (Jim) grew up in Afton, Wyoming. As the son of a dentist he had the opportunity to observe his father on many occassions. Dr. Sorensen attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Indiana and received an Associates Degree in Pre-technical Biology. While at Ricks he took a two year sabbatical to serve a mission in Rochester, New York. After finishing his degree at Ricks he attended Brigham Young University before receiving his dental training at the University of Nebraska Dental Center. Following dental school he and his family, after a lot of research, made the decision to make their home in Cedar City in 1996. This has been a wonderful experience for them, and since that time, they have had four great children here.
