Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Johnson "Dr. Johnson believes in early development growth guidance orthodontics.  The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends seeing an orthodontist at the age of 7. Through growth guidance appliances Dr. Johnson can increase jaw width and encourage or discourage jaw growth that is growing abnormally.  This early treatment results in a non-extraction treatment for Phase II Braces treatment.  

Through early interceptive treatment in the developing dentition, Dr Johnson can improve not only the bite and jaw alignment, he can also improve the patient's profile and overall appearance.

We treat all patients like family.  Dr. Johnson's team members are all highly qualified Registered Dental Assistants.  Each patient is treated as the unique human being that God has created."
