New Doctor, Same Great Care

Dr. Kirk Petersen has been providing quality dental care in Hemet for over 20 years and in California for 30. After decades of rewarding and humbling experiences helping patients both at home in our community and abroad in Guatemala for people in need, Dr. Petersen is hanging up his scrubs and retiring. Whether you’re a long-time patient of Dr. Petersen at Hemet West Dental Office or you’re looking for a new dentist for the whole family, you’ve come to the right place. While we are sad to see him go, rest assured you can still receive the same great care with some of the same team members and Dr. Petersen’s trusted associate, Dr. Nathan Jergensen at Diamond Valley Dentist.

Schedule a visit today to meet Dr. Jergensen and our outstanding team.

You will recognize some of the friendly faces from Hemet West. We look forward to smiling with you!

How Can We Help You Smile?

Family & Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Petersen loved caring for children and families, and Dr. Jergensen does, too! Whether your little one needs a cleaning or grandma needs a new set of dentures, we’ve got you covered to provide all your family’s dental needs conveniently and comfortably under one roof.

Advanced Technology

We know Dr. Petersen’s patients appreciated all of the advanced technology in the practice, and while there may be some differences, you can enjoy many of the same benefits with Dr. Jergensen at Diamond Valley Dentist—with the addition of surgical implant placement to complete the entire dental implant process in-house!

Outstanding Patient Care

Dr. Petersen is confident Dr. Jergensen will carry on his legacy, providing the same high quality of dentistry and compassionate care. Many of Dr. Petersen’s team members will join us at Diamond Valley Dentist as well, so you can continue to be cared for by the same friendly faces you are accustomed to. This addition of team members has allowed Dr. Jergensen to provide multilingual communication support, as well as more availability for hygiene appointments that work with your busy schedule.

Flexible Financing

At Diamond Valley Dentist, we believe quality dental care should be affordable and accessible to everyone. That’s why we work with you and/or your insurance company to help you get the care you deserve without breaking the bank. If you don’t have insurance or need additional help affording treatment, we are happy to offer flexible financing options to help you get the care you need, when you need it.


Why Our Patients Smile

Dr. Nathan Jergensen

Nathan Jergensen, DMD

Hi, I’m Dr. Nathan Jergensen, and I was born and raised right here in Hemet! I was exposed to dentistry early on by my father, who is still a practicing orthodontist in the area. He introduced me to the rewarding feeling that comes with seeing people relax and smile when they know they’re in capable, caring hands. I’m proud to follow in his footsteps, but also fulfill my own vision practicing general dentistry.

I received my dental education from Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ and completed an Advanced Education Residency in General Dentistry at UCLA. My goal is to offer every treatment you may need in my own office so I never have to send my patients away. It was always a dream of mine to return home and serve the community I grew up in and I am thrilled to be doing just that. I am proud and humbled that Dr. Petersen has entrusted his patients to me, and I promise to provide the same great care.
