What an amazing experience.
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 procedures performed were painless, and well-explained prior to work being done.
Gracious, skilled, meticulous and calm, what more can you ask for in a dentist?
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.
The whole team was wonderful. It really helped to be able to listen to music during cleaning. Definitely recommend them!
Dr. Giple-Johnson is really friendly and gentle. She performed the exam and cleaning herself, and walked me through all of my x-rays. I'll be returning in 6 months!
Very delightful and thorough
Short wait, great dental cleaning.
Staff was very friendly. Francisca Giple-Johnson, DDS was very professional and extremely thorough. Made me feel very comfortable.
They were awesome and I've already recommended them to a few friends!!!
Dr. Johnson makes going to the dentist stress free. The relaxing office and the professional staff almost makes it feel like a spa experience. I highly recommend!
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 the fact that they had wireless headphones with Spotify tunes. Overall, I was very happy with the level of service.
I was very happy with Dr. Giple-Johnson and her team. I cannot say one bad thing about my experience today.
Wow, I have to say this was the first time I didnt mind going to the dentist. Everyone in the office is super nice and makes you feel comfortable. The office is clean and you are offered a beverage while you wait. I didnt wait long before I was seen. Dr. Johnson is very gentle and just really makes you feel comfortable. Everything is explained well. Im so happy to find a great dentist so close to home.
Very gentle kind staff, and incredibly patient. Can't wait to return (something I never thought I'd say about dental visits!)
Promo, friendly, thorough examination.
Very friendly and calming.
Everyone was very friendly and professional. Each provider introduced themselves and their role. Each one also gave clear directions and explanation of the plan.
Entire experience was excellent.
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.
She was amazing and very personable.
Dr. Giple-Johnson is very kind and thorough and all of the staff are warm and friendly. I always feel that I and my comfort are of utmost importance to all of them. Great place, even for those of us who dread going to the dentist.
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.Johnson is 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!
All the staff was very nice!
I really liked seeing her--very intelligent, professional, and polite. I would still see her but I moved out of Austin. Her front office staff and hygienists are fantastic as well.
Amazing and thorough. Wonderful experience.
Great service, advice, and manner.
Dr. Giple-Johnson and her team were great! She was very thorough in explaining each aspect of the examination and cleaning, which I greatly appreciate.
It was my first visit and it went very well. Everyone was so nice and professional. I'm glad I chose Wellness Dental.
Dr. Johnson + entire team was absolutely amazing. They were transparent, honest, and made sure I was comfortable. The team was very personable and had great personalities. I will definitely recommend this team to my friends.
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 her assistant 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.
I thought she was very informative, friendly and professional.
She was very polite, professional and thorough in her examination.
I had a great visit! I am new to Austin and this was the first dentist I'd been to in a while. She was great, very professional, and extremely informative. I liked how she set out a plan of events to occur over the next several months!
Great visit. Dr. Giple-Johnson and her staff are wonderful. Very accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend them.
