Meet Dr. James Johnson

Helping His Hometown Develop Healthy Smiles

A Buckley, WA native, Dr. James Johnson loves helping friends and neighbors develop and maintain optimal oral health and great smiles. Focusing on each person’s specific dental concerns, Dr. Johnson encourages patients to discuss their goals and works with them to develop a custom treatment approach to reach those goals.

Dr. Johnson is an Associate Professor at the University of Washington, School of Dentistry, where he teaches a class in Restorative Dentistry. He stays current on developments in technology and techniques through participation in dental study clubs, as well as attending conferences and lectures. He loves helping develop the future of his profession as well as staying on top of the latest trends in modern dentistry.

The field of dentistry is quickly changing, with new techniques and technologies that have greatly improved the patient experience.  Dr. Johnson has brought many of those techniques and technologies to our office, using leading-edge, painless procedures to help patients attain a healthy mouth and smile.

Dr. Johnson’s roots run deep in our local community.  He was the fourth generation in his family to graduate from Buckley’s White River High School.  Dr. Johnson attended Pacific Lutheran University where he earned his Bachelor of Science in biology with a minor in chemistry.  From there he went on to study at the University of Washington, School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). 

When he’s not treating patients or teaching dental students, Dr. Johnson can be found with his wife and high school sweetheart Margy, and their son. He also enjoys snowboarding, kiteboarding, and travel.
