My visit was great. Started off with a very friendly staff, followed by a thorough session with Dr. Johnson, and finished off with a good cleaning by the hygienist. Would definitely recommend!

This was the nicest dentist office I have ever visited. The staff was extremely friendly. They give you headphones to listen to music during the teeth cleaning and whitening which made passing the time much more pleasant. They were even veryflexible and gave me a whitening treatment right after my cleaning, instead of having to make another appointment. Plus they have free bottled water and cute gift bags.

Very kind and knowledgeable doctor. The wait was about 15 minutes, which was unexpected because I filled out paperwork through ZocDoc before arrival. The front desk could not locate my paperwork and made me start to fill out the same thingover again, before locating it 10 minutes later. Took more X-rays than with previous dentists. Used water pick for cleaning which was so much nicer than the scraper. I left with whiter, cleaner teeth than other experiences at other offices. Highly recommended!

A little slow to be taken back (partly my fault for having old insurance info on file), but everyone was so friendly and helpful it was a non-issue. Looking forward to future appts with Dr. Johnson!

This was great! I don't have anything negative to say about the appointment. I just went in for a routine cleaning, and everything went well. The cleaning itself was comfortable and gentle. Dr. Johnson did the cleaning herself!

It was my initial visit so I received a number of x-rays to get a full picture of what's going on with my teeth. All of the staff members were very nice and welcoming. The teeth cleaning and all other proceduresperformed were painless, and well-explained prior to work being done.

The visit itself was comfortable and the all of the staff was courteous. And I love that they have weekend hours. However, the prices here were a lot more than what other reputable dentists are charging, even with insurance.

Positive experience, I have a lot of respect for Dr Johnson. One of the nurses appeared to be very new, and the appointment started off rather awkwardly and slowly, but expect that will work itself out over time. Especially liked thefact that they had wireless headphones with Spotify tunes. Overall, I was very happy with the level of service.

The office staff was very welcoming and pleasant. I was extremely nervous because I need a lot of work and am embarrassed about my teeth. The doctor and staff were honest about my teeth and the condition they are in, but,did not make me feel like it was something I needed to be embarrassed about. (Trust me, I;m in bad shape). She had availability to start treatment at the initial appointment but I have to psych myself up for the work. But, I do plan to carry on with the treatment plan because it seems affordable and within my budget. I am definitely recommending her for my friends and family that need work.

Friendly staff, clean and very nicely decorated envirronment with refreshments available. I appreciated that they provide complimentary chap stick to keep your lips from cracking with all the manipulating they do in your mouth. Dr.Johnsonis well educated and made sure she "dotted her 'i's and crossed her 't's" while reviewing my treatment plan. She paid special attention to my sensitive areas and numbed them so I wouldnt feel the pain. The receptionist was easy going and called me 3 days in advance to review my appointment and confirm they spoke with my insurance. The assistant brought out quotes showing me what my (additional) treatment would cost prior to avoid surprise bills. They have wireless headphones for you to listen to your choice of music while they work on you. I felt like i was visiting old family friends and for that reason I will follow Dr.Johnson wherever (if ever) she moves locations. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you want a dr and staff that cares about you as a patient and not see you as a pay check!

A good friend of mine recommended Dr. Johnson to me and I couldn't be happier! I knew going in that I'd probably need some extensive work done, but she took her time and explained everything in simple terms. She and herassistant came up with a treatment plan for me so that I wouldn't be overwhelmed and I appreciated that! Everyone in the office was very friendly and professional. I have always been a nervous wreck going to any type of Doctor, but thanks to Dr. Johnson's wonderful service, I'm not so anxious anymore.
