I value every patient and strive to address every individual need and concern. To me, valuing your patients means taking a personalized approach to patient care. From their first consultation and understanding their specific condition and goals, to working with them to create a personalized treatment plan, to post-surgery recovery and beyond, I treat my patients with the respect and care they deserve to achieve the best possible experience for them.
Dr. Carl Johnson grew up in a small mining town in Nevada. He didn't always know that he wanted to be an oral surgeon; rather, he discovered his interest in dentistry while he was studying for his undergraduate degree. While working for a professor in an embryology lab with his cousin, Dr. Carl realized that he wanted a career in a field that could help people. This work, combined with the inspiration from his father being an orthodontist, led Dr. Carl to go to dental school.
When he first started dental school, Dr. Carl had no intentions of specializing in oral surgery. After a couple of years of education and training, however, he realized oral and maxillofacial surgery appealed to him. He was interested in providing patients with more comprehensive care than he could give them as a dentist. As an oral surgeon, he strives to treat patients with respect and care using the most efficient tools for an accurate diagnosis and efficient treatment. He finds it extremely gratifying to provide patients who are in pain with solutions that have them leaving the practice with a functional new smile.
