It is our pleasure to assist you in maximizing your insurance benefit by completing your claim forms. If your carrier is up to date (in over 70% of the cases), the claims will be electronically transmitted before the end of the treatment day! All applicable deductibles for your insurance plan will be collected before treatment begins. As a courtesy, in addition to filing the claim, we will initially ask you only for your estimated co-payment. Please understand that this is only an estimate and is based upon the information available to us. Once your carrier has paid the claim, any difference will be due upon receipt of our statement. If your insurance company postpones payment for more than 60 days, we ask that you make the remaining payment while we work together to get the insurance company to pay you, their obligation.

The range of benefits depends solely on what your employer wishes to purchase. Some plans cover as little as 30%, or as much as 100% of dental services, with most falling in the 40% to 80% range. Many plans base the amount of benefit on a schedule of fees arbitrarily developed by insurance companies. For this reason, you may receive a lower percentage than the reimbursement level indicated in your dental plan. For example, if your plan states that it will pay 80% of the cost of a specific treatment, it means 80% of the fee arbitrarily determined by the insurance company and not the actual fee charged by our office.

The final obligation for the dental treatment is between you and our office.

We love our patients:

beautiful smiles

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.

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.
