Meet Dr. Johnson: Franklin TN
As a dentist, I find the biggest reward in my profession is to know that my patients are comfortable in my care and trust me with their oral health. Many people are fearful of the dentist or have had a previous bad experience, and I work hard to alleviate a patient’s fear and to put them at ease.
I want to provide a unique dental experience for my patients. I strive to blend artistry and advanced techniques while also providing a comfortable setting and quality care that patients deserve.
Education: Lipscomb & University of Tennessee
I attended Lipscomb University for my undergraduate education and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with a Biology major and Chemistry minor, graduating summa cum laude. I then attended the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. While at the University of Tennessee, I received the James T. Andrews Award for restorative dentistry and also graduated with honors. Before opening Berry Farms Dental, I was an associate dentist in a group practice in Madison and Mt. Juliet.
Continuing Dental Education
I realize how important it is to continue to learn about the latest technology, dental materials, and new procedures in dentistry so that I can best benefit my patients. Therefore, each year I earn well above the minimum requirements for continuing education. For the past several years, I have received the ACE award from the Tennessee Dental Association for completing more than double the amount of required continuing education hours.
