Our Mission

 To provide uncompromised excellence in dental care for all of our valued patients.

Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we have carefully planned and revised our office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. These added precautions have been implemented to provide the safest possible dental treatment experience as we strive to maintain the optimal dental health for all of our patients. Our dental office is ideally equipped with private patient treatment rooms, which greatly minimizes contact between scheduled patients. We also alternate seating patients between our treatment rooms with each appointment.

We remain committed to:

  • Always listening to those who we are privileged to serve.
  • Earning the trust and respect of our patients, those we work with in our profession, and in our community.
  • Exceeding your expectations of care
  • Striving for continuous improvement to meet these goals.


Crowns And Bridges

Crowns, made of either porcelain or ceramic materials, are used to cover and protect cracked teeth, increase comfort, and offer extra support to those that are weak or damaged. If you have old crowns with black lines by the gums, metal-free crowns can be made that will vastly improve the overall appearance of your smile. Please contact our office for a free consultation to see how a crown can greatly enhance your smile and protect your teeth.

Dental Implants

Don't let missing teeth or broken dentures hold you back from portraying the confident, healthy smile that you deserve. With today's newest technologies, our office can give you a free consultation and come up with a treatment plan to restore your missing and broken teeth with beautiful porcelain crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Family Dentistry

Over the years, Jerry A Johnson, DDS dental practice has grown, along with the many families we have been blessed to include as our patients. What a pleasure it is to now include a whole new generation of families as our patients, as the grown children from those families, continue coming to our office while bringing their own children with them. 

Restorative Dentistry

Many people suffer from discomfort in their mouth due to an imbalance in their bite. Uneven teeth, due to nighttime grinding or wear, can result in an unbalanced bite. Often patients complain of headaches and TMJ problems because of this condition. Our office will individually assess a patient who is experiencing these problems. Uneven teeth can be built up, restored, and balanced for a more even bite. Often times, a custom-designed night guard to be worn at the bed, helps many patients relieve these symptoms, and can eliminate further damage done at night by tooth grinding.

Teeth Whitening

Many factors can affect the ugly, dark staining we often begin to see on the surfaces of our teeth due to age, coffee, tea, soft drinks, and tobacco. Tooth whitening is a safe and simple way to enhance your appearance through a brighter, more youthful smile. After a free consultation, we will determine if custom bleaching trays which can conveniently be worn at home, are an option for you. These bleaching trays provide a low-cost alternative to those seeking a refreshed smile. Whitening is a safe, simple way to do something special for yourself and help you restore your gleaming smile.

Digital X-rays

Our office uses the state-of-the-art digital X-rays to help improve the way we observe dental changes that have occurred in the mouth.

This precise technology speeds up and simplifies the diagnostic part of your treatment and gives us a higher level of care in treating patients. Digital x-rays have the added benefit of using much less radiation during your visit than previous methods used for dental x-rays.

Questions and Answers:

I have an upcoming appointment. Should I reschedule because of coronavirus?

A: If you are healthy, there is no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment. We do ask that you arrive on time for your appointment. We are asking patients to use their best judgment and caution surrounding upcoming appointments. If you are feeling unwell, and dental care can wait, you may choose to reschedule your appointment. We are happy to assist you with this.

Q: What is your practice doing to protect patients from the virus?

A: Our office always adheres to the highest level of precautions and protocols to prevent the spread of infection, including COVID-19. We follow the CDC’s guidelines for infection control procedures every day, which you can find on their website. These include the addition of protective barriers around the reception desk, the spacing of new bacteria-resistant reception area seating, spaced-out appointments between patients, new ultraviolet air filtration systems in each room, added PPE for all staff, and new extra-oral suction equipment to capture aerosols during procedures.

We love our patients: Start the new year 2024 with making your dental appointment. Maintaining oral health is essential to overall health and well-being.

Dr. Jerry Johnson is amazing!   Love him. I have delta dental PPO and switched to him when I moved to the area. Highly recommend!

I'm so glad that I found this dentist! He and his staff are the nicest, kindest, and professional people! The main reasons are that they are honest and fair. I feel like I'm going to see family when I go there. Dr. Johnson and his team always treat you with care. They are very gentle, because I'm sure that they are cognizant of the fact that most people are very frightened to see a dentist and get their teeth cleaned or treated. Great people-highly recommended!

Dr. Johnson and his staff worked with me when I had a recent dental emergency. He was able to work me into his schedule and diagnose my cracked tooth and provide temporary relief from the pain. I am extremely happy with my new crown and feel that Dr. Johnson did an amazing job. 


I wouldn't go anywhere else! I have a phobia of dentists and had stayed away from any for 5-6 years until I found Doctor Johnson. He worked with me and seemed to understand my fear. With a genetic tendency for gum problems, he has done everything to help encourage me to improve my dental health. Even when I went to grad school and had access to the low-cost university dentist, I chose to have Dr Johnson do my dental work. 5 stars all the way.

Dr. Johnson is a high-quality dentist who takes the time to explain any procedure you need to have done, which greatly puts you at ease. I recently broke off a piece of one of my back molars while eating at a restaurant. I called his office and Dr. Johnson was able to see me right away and fit me in to his schedule. I ended up needing a crown and couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you, Dr. Johnson!     

I have been going to Dr. Johnson's office for a number of years and I cannot recommend them enough.  The staff is knowledgeable, courteous and always friendly - there is a caring, personal touch here that you do not find with all Dental Offices.  

From the moment you arrive you are greeted with a smile and a warm demeanor by Mary at the front desk, and that feeling continues through the rest of your visit.  Dr. Johnson always takes the time to explain any necessary procedures and offers advice & tips on ways that I can improve my teeth in advance of the next visit.

I know that often people don't usually enjoy going to the dentist, which is why I have told referred so many people to Dr. Johnson - here you really feel like you are part of the family.
Robert - 

Best Dentist In the World!!!!!! 

My wife has been going to Dr. Johnson for quite some time now and she introduced me to him about 12 years ago. I have never felt so comfortable with a dentist as I have with Dr. Johnson. I have had a lot of work done by Dr. Johnson and have never felt any pain... AT ALL! If you are afraid of going to the dentist because of the pain, you need not fear Dr. Johnson. He is easy going and patient and does not try to sell you anything you don't need. Another thing that makes his office great is, he is prompt. If your appointment is at 2, then you are in your chair and being worked on at 2. He doesn't over book, which speaks volumes about his care for his patients.

 Jerry Johnson is the best dentist I've ever been to. I used to go to Dental Plus in Pasadena, and although their dentists were very competent, they were always trying to get me to do what I thought were unnecessary procedures (like veneers I didn't want or need). Jerry is the exact opposite of this. He's very laid-back, knowledgeable, and never tries to rip you off. His staff are friendly, polite, and intelligent. I think he already has plenty of patients, but I'd strongly recommend him if you're looking for a dentist in the Pasadena area.
