Dr. Johnson on the most rewarding part of dentistry
The first thing that jumps out at me is how people change when you give them something back, when you take the time to work with them, know what is bothering them the most, and then seeing examples like a face coming back to them the way they wanted it to be, to see their confidence. I've seen amazing things over the years when people came in and how they were dressed and how they walked so much differently after we were done. They just have a new spark in their life. That makes me feel good.
Dr. Johnson is active in many organizations including the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Association, Fox River Valley Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society. He is most proud of his continued involvement in the American Academy of Periodontology, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the Academy of Osseointegration.
