  • "My family and I started going to Dr. Johnson about 30 years ago. Now our grandchildren go to Smile Dental. In my opinion, the facilities and equipment are as good as it gets. The professionalism in appearance, the attitude and friendliness of the personnel are great. Their intent to please and accommodate the patients are all you could ask for. I know from experience they care and will be there when you need them. If you want quality- this is the place- I recommend them."
