Dr. Bri Torgerson

Hi! I’m Dr. Bri Torgerson. I’m a General Dentist and I’ve had a long journey to dental school, through dental school, and life after dental school.

I graduated from undergrad at Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2014 and dental school at The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC in 2020.

I love my Faith, traveling, baking, cooking, volunteering, coffee, and being with my family including my basset hound, Wilbur.

My favorite teams are the Minnesota Vikings, the St. Louis Blues, and the St. Louis Cardinals.

A career goal I have is to do a mission trip once and year. One of my life goals, outside of my career, is to visit every National Park in the United States.
