We have been going to this practice for almost 20 years. I am happy to see it passed on to good hands. The staff has always been down to earth and friendly. They treat patients like family. Dr. Johnson is very caring and kind. He is also energetic and knowledgeable and excited about new dental technologies and treatments. They have convenient early morning appointments and will always squeeze emergencies in when needed. You are in very good hands with the entire staff.

Dr. Matthew Johnson and his staff, Charlene, Kathy, Kim and Jennifer are absolutely wonderful! They are friendly and as painful as it is for me to go to the dentist for anything they make me feel relaxed and comfortable. The conversation is lively and fun. You’ll really like the staff in this practice. I highly recommend them!
