Jeffrey G. Johnson, DDS, MS


Biography

Education and Leadership


“I decided to enter the field of dentistry, specifically orthodontics, because it involves an interesting and challenging combination of biomedical engineering and dental science. In addition, the prospect of being able to enhance patients’ smiles to make a positive difference in their lives- is very rewarding to me.

When I first started practicing in 1996, I made a commitment to provide patients with the highest quality of care possible.  I do this by offering leading edge orthodontic advances such as the SureSmile digital orthodontic system, which can help patients achieve straight, beautiful smiles in less time and with fewer office visits. In addition, my staff and I treat every patient with the friendly, unhurried care they deserve. We strive to take the time to explain everything to patients so they are fully informed and confident with their care.” We consider every patient to be an extension of our families. Orthodontics is a wonderful way to make a difference for people through an improvement in their self image and consequently, their self-esteem.”

Dr. Jeff Johnson is blessed with a wonderful wife, Amy (his high school sweetheart), and two children, Maddie (2002) and Dylan (2005). While Orthodontics dominates his time and is one of his passions, spending time with his family is his greatest passion. He finds joy in watching Maddie and Dylan participate in soccer and hockey as well as playing golf, tennis, and traveling.
