About Dr. Johnson

Dr. Johnson has over 25 years experience in dental implant surgery, starting in 1986 with training at the Branemark Clinic in Gothenburg, Sweden, the home of titanium dental implant treatment. Over the years, dental implant surgery has grown to be 70% of his practice. He has acquired skill and experience in all levels of implant treatment from straightforward to advanced and complex cases.

He is a proponent of the team approach in which treatment steps are performed by specialists acting as a well coordinated team including the surgeon, restorative doctors, and lab technicians working together for the benefit of the patient.

His commitment to patient education includes his involvement as a founding member of the Advisory Board of the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness, a non-profit patient awareness and education organization. He is also a Fellow of the International Team for Implant Dentistry, the ITI, and a member of many dental associations including the American Academy of Periodontists and the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry.

Dental implant surgery is a primary area of his work but he also has extensive experience in gingival (gum) grafting and treatment of periodontitis (gum disease).

About the Practice

The hallmark of Dr. Johnson’s practice is consistent, optimal treatment outcomes for patients, founded on accurate diagnosis of problems, and commitment to patient education with consideration of treatment options and alternative approaches.

The majority of his staff/team members have worked with Dr. Johnson for the long term, many over 15 years. This continuity of experienced, skilled, and dedicated team members is valuable regarding efficient planning, preparing, and scheduling treatment.

Your Initial Consultation

Dr. Johnson starts with a comprehensive examination including the jaw, joints, soft tissues and teeth, and completes the process with a thorough screening for oral cancer. The examination is followed by a treatment conference where Dr. Johnson will provide all options for treatment, identify your needs and goals, and answer any questions. If you are missing teeth, dental implants will be incorporated into your ideal treatment plan, as this is the optimum choice for tooth replacement.

You can trust Dr. Johnson will never compromise the natural-looking appearance of your smile by cutting corners, or experimenting with a new technique designed to save time. Dr. Johnson’s attention to detail and the precision with which he performs procedures requires extra time, but the results speak for themselves.
