At Johnson Family Dental we believe that community involvement is at our core. We not only care about your dental health, but also about being involved with giving back by donations and sponsorships to local community events and charities.
JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
As of 2010, we have become official corporate sponsors of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Dr. Steven Johnson’s son, Braxton, was diagnosed in 2010 with Juvenile Diabetes and ever since then, Dr. Johnson has done everything he can to give back to this cause.
In 2012 we raised over $20,000 for JDRF.
Dentistry with Love
We have two free dental days every year. Our first event of the year is called Dentistry with Love, which is often held in February.
This event is held on a first come first serve basis. Patients can receive a free filling, cleaning or extraction. We also take donations on this free day for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and match what we collect.
In August we hold another free event called Little Hearts, Big Smiles. For this fun event children ages 1-13 can schedule a free cleaning and fluoride treatment.
We love to get to know kids on a one-on-one basis and teach them that going to the dentist does not have to be a scary event.
We also teach them how to brush and floss their teeth so they start to create good dental hygiene habits.
Cash for Candy
Our last event is called Cash for Candy, which is always held the week following Halloween. For this event we invite kids to come in and sell back their Halloween candy to us for $2 dollars per pound, (5-pound maximum). We in-turn donate that candy to a program called Operation Gratitude who sends it our to our troops serving over seas.
In 2011 we received 653 pounds of candy from kids and companies in our areas.
