A Smile Can Change Life

Community Involvement

home / about us / community involvement

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.


Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

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.

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.


Little Hearts Big Smiles

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

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.

What People Are Saying

Came in for a free consultation and also received a free x-ray. I was immediately accommodated and had 3 wisdom teeth extracted in the same visit. Very good service. I had minimal pain and no swelling. Very pleased with the results. Received good instruction on post-surgery care and a caring attitude by the staff.

George T.

Our family has been with Johnson Family Dental for several years now. We are extremely pleased with their services, especially given that our young boys have been introduced to visits to the dentist in a way that they look forward to. That helps alot! And their care for all of us has been superb. Need I say more? Thanks Johnson Family Dental! Oh, did I also mention that we use their Solvang and Santa Barbara locations? Equally fine!

John W.

I've been a patient at Johnson Family Dental for over a year, and this was my third visit, a routine cleaning. I arrived about 15 minutes early, and they were able to see me prior to my appointed time. The assistant took x-rays, Dr. Johnson--always friendly--did a quick exam, and the hygienist did a thorough yet gentle cleaning. The office was clean and bright, the staff was friendly and helpful, and I was on my way with clean teeth!

Greg D.

I am a new customer and was given an immediate appointment for tooth pain and had a root canal. From the very first interaction, every member of the staff were courteous, pleasant and caring. The care was excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Constance W.

From the reception desk and beyond Johnson family dental makes me feel welcome and comfortable. They seem to understand how nerve wracking it is to go to the dentist even though it is normal to them. I appreciate being made to feel comfortable.

Kerri K.

A very nice place to have all your dental work done. After 17 years of going there that speaks for all my thoghts about Johnson Family Dental.

This is the best dentist office I've ever been to, excellent location, friendly, clean, modern, quick and competent. In other words, the best.

Very professional and pleasant. Personnel that did the work were very competent and cheerful. Good experience.

Dennis L.

I went as a patient who had a terrible childhood experience and I discovered an amazing family at the Johnson Family Dental who truly treated me.

Dianne G.

I am a long-time customer of Johnson Family Dental - ever since my graduate school days - now living in Reno, Nevada. I still travel back to Santa Barbara, 1000+ miles, for the exceptional dental care I always receive at this fine practice.
