Dream of a place where the whole family can be seen and treated by a stellar dentist and staff who truly care about your dental health, your wait time is minimal and pleasant, and appointments are made based on your schedule....Now, wake up and look no further! Dr. Joel Johnson's dental practice is leaps and bounds above the rest! My children actually look forward to their visits and feel Dr. Johnson really cares about them and their comfort. We have lived all over the country, and have never had this experience! I recommend his practice to all my friends and patients.

Dear Joel:

I would once again like to thank you for your above and beyond service and care to my personal needs regarding dental care. You certainly are the best dentist I have ever had to work on my teeth. Not only are you attentive to detail, but you make your patients very comfortable. Thanks for all you have done for me, my family, the many coaches and student athletes at the University of South Carolina.

I have been going to Dr. Joel Johnson or his processor since first moving to Columbia in 1970.  To that end, I have found his level of professionalism, skills, equipment and staff to be the best of any dentist I have been to previously.  He has never failed to be concerned about my personal needs, going the extra mile to make sure all problems or potential problems are handled and solved in a timely and practical manner.  Without question, I would recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone needing dental or other oral services.

We have trusted all of our dental care to Dr. Joel Johnson for 24 years. Living on the coast of South Carolina, we make the 130 mile trip to Columbia regularly for everything from routine cleaning to specialty procedures.  We also trust Dr. Johnson’s referrals to those doctors that specialize in more complex treatments.

Since our first visit to his office in 1987, Dr. Johnson and his exceptional professional staff have always been very accommodating when our needs arise.  My wife and I are grateful for the excellent care we have received and most certainly will continue to depend on Dr. Johnson and staff for all of our dental care needs.

"As someone from a period and place in time where I was not exposed to professional preventive dental care and fluoride, I came to Dr. Johnson with serious tooth and bone loss problems. He has worked so hard over the past 15 years to get me “up and running”; even going so far as to travel to Charlotte with me one Saturday (in an awful rain storm) to visit his dental lab to make sure that my new front teeth bridge was made to both his and my satisfaction. Not only is Dr. “J” a skilled dentist, he's a kind and caring man. 

The dental hygienists and dental assistants and administrative staff are equally skilled and caring. They have always treated me with the utmost respect and kindness.

Do I just love, love, LOVE Dr. Johnson and his team? You betcha, and I highly recommend him to anyone who is searching for excellent dental care."

As a 20 year+ patient of Dr. Johnson, I've come the rely on him for not only the essential dental care, but for more serious issues associated with things like crowns, bridges and referrals. In every instance, Dr. Johnson has provided top notch care, in some cases responding to emergencies on weekends and in the evening. His skill as a DMD are superb from not only a structural standpoint, but a cosmetic as well. Over the years his office staff has always been a reflection of his high standard of customer care and accommodation. Thank you Dr. Johnson.
