About Your Dentist

Gregory S. Johnson, DDS

"Blessed be the SmileMakers, for they shall enhance the earth."

My Mission

"I've always wanted to give back to the community and help people. I wanted to work with my hands, to be creative and to help others. Dentistry gives me the ability to do those things every single day. If a person is smiling, it's always the first thing you see. A smile says so much about you! I love that I get a chance to create beautiful smiles."

Ian S. Bernard, DMD

My Mission

"I've always loved to work with my hands, and I found my passion for the medical field through the Army. While I was serving, I fell in love with dentistry, because it allows me to combine those things every single day. A person's smile is one of the first things people notice about each other, and it's also part of their visual first impression. I love that I get a chance to enhance and create beautiful smiles. Making people feel good about their smiles makes me feel good."
