Dr. Johnson graduated
from UOP Dental School in l982. Following her training in San Francisco,
she moved to Santa
Cruz California, where
she enjoyed having a Preventive Family Practice. Her gentle ease with
patients and emphasis on quality patient care won her the award of “Best
Dentist in Santa Cruz County” in l995 and l997. Dr. Johnson has
always remained active in the California and American Dental Association.
Through the years she has also volunteered for dental screenings and
dental education in the local schools in Santa Cruz County. Dr. Johnson
continues to learn and improve her skills through various CE courses,
study clubs, and ongoing communication with her colleagues.
In l998 Dr. Johnson was fortunate enough to take some time off from
her dental career to concentrate on being a full-time mom. Following
a move to the Bay Area she reunited with a UOP colleague, Dr. Gogol-Mach,
and was given the opportunity to join a dental practice very similar
to her own practice in Santa Cruz. Dr. Johnson absolutely loves being
a dentist and feels very grateful to have found such a wonderful group
of women to work with.
