Paula C. on Yelp
This is a large practice with four offices and a business model geared to more volume than a typical dentist's office.

In that mode, it is very well run, pleasant and professional and given their excellent pricing I can't imagine going anywhere else. I had two different practicioners for a cleaning as they utilized the hygienist's time just for the cleaning portion and a dental assistant finished my cleaning with the polishing and flossing phase. This actually makes great business sense, especially since the cost savings are passed along to the patient.

I highly recommend this practice, especially if you want to avoid the unusually high fees smaller, private dentists feel comfortable charging for their work in Santa Barbara.

Just moved to Santa Barbara and one of my doctors recommended Johnson Dental. They were easy to get an appointment, easy to find and easy parking. The reception people were very nice and efficient. Each person I encountered welcomed me to the practice.

Delaine, the new patient coordinator, was so good at orienting me to the whole practice and explaining how their systems of care worked. Using my Access card, I received a full set of digital x-rays and initial exam for free. Dr. Plicka was very nice and explained his treatment plan in terms of what was urgent and what could be done in the future. He actually explained why each thing was needed and showed me on the photos Delaine had taken of my teeth, (a full set of photos were included in initial exam). Delaine then prepared a written plan specifically including my insurance coverage and all of my costs. The plan also included a visual layout of the teeth they were going to repair.

I made an appointment for the next day and had three cavities filled and one crown prepared in an hour and a half. No pain because Dr. Plicka was so conscientious about numbing me completely.

I am VERY satisfied, and can't wait to get my permanent crown put on. Later on, I will get my teeth cleaned and use my Access card again for free whitening trays and whitening gel for a year. Highly recommend!

I came to Johnson Dental after a very bad experience with another dentist. Dr. Hlavity is very patient and listens to your concerns. He fixed my bridge and now I can chew properly and I get compliments on my smile. Dental assistant Karina is the most patient, knowledgeable and efficient dental professional I have ever met.
Felipe A. on Yelp
I was long overdue for a teeth cleaning and a general check up, so I used one of their coupons for $69 to schedule an appointment. The place kinda has that corporate feel, but everyone is very nice and welcoming. The staff and dentists really treat you with compassion and not like another scheduled appointment on their calendar. You can really tell the dentist and the hygienist love what they do!
Queen S. on Yelp
Best group ever!!! Julie has been cleaning my teeth for a few years now. She is so thorough and professional. I absolutely love her! Julie keeps me smiling. I could never go back to my old dentist after I started going here. JFD is truly the best in quality care and customer service.
Leah N. on Yelp
Great dentist office! I was experiencing crazy amounts of pain yesterday and today, I called a number of offices but no one was nearly as nice and accommodating as this one was. They got me an appointment right away and they were very comforting throughout the process. I would highly recommend them!
Vanessa C. on Yelp
I came to this office through my 4 year old daughter, whose dentist office was shutting down and referred all their patients to Johnson Family Dental. My first experience was taking my daughter for her annual check up. Luci was awesome as well as Dr. Kim. The dental hygienist Sophie was stellar. My 4 year old did not fidget once, in fact, she did not want to leave the chair!

My next experience was my exam a few days later. I knew this one would be much harder because I had dental issues. I ended up needing major dental work, a root canal, and 3 fills to my cavities to start! I have had nightmares about this for more that a year! So to say I have anxiety about visiting the dentist is an understatement.

I opted for the nitrous gas for my procedure. My dentist was Dr. Johnson and my dental assistant was Sophie. They could tell I was nervous. Dr. Johnson and Sophie told me they would go slow and give me breaks, because I have TMJ.

I was a nervous wreck, but they both were so gentle, sweet, kind and tender, given the circumstances. My occupation is a Patient Care Coordinator for a Facial Plastic Surgeon, so I felt very bad for them, like I was a difficult patient, but they reassured me that I was not.

My overall experience was great. I felt no discomfort. My jaw was sore from my TMJ, I did put myself through anxiety, so I would opt for a valium next time, but the way Sophie and Dr.Johnson treated me was so professional and kind that I felt so well cared for and attended. I highly recommend this practice. I have worked in the medical field for over ten years now, and am highly critical of patient care, and I can honestly say that this medical establishment is well run, efficient, the staff is well trained and kind. I feel safe and cared for and even more so, I feel safe taking my daughter there.

I visited there again this past week for my teeth cleaning with Nicole and again I had a most phenomenal experience. Nicole was professional, kind, thorough and gentle. The room was clean and the experience was a ten. I was educated on proper techniques and she explained what she was doing instead of just going through her process.

Great job Johnson Family Dental! You all are making going to the dentist a more friendly enjoyable experience!
Vanessa H. on Yelp
Another great appointment!!!! Love this place so clean and the staff is so friendly!!! Dr. Plicka did my exam after my cleaning with Karin. See you in six months!
Niema E. on Yelp
I absolutely loved my visit. The place is comfortable, relaxing, clean, and the staff give 5-star service. I love how informative they were. Things went very smoothly. I would recommend a friend/family. I'm so happy I found this dentist office. I had Jason work on me the most and he did such a great job with making me feel at ease during my procedure.b
Amanda L. on Yelp
It is Such a beautiful office. I enjoyed the atmosphere immensely. Chris did my cleaning and he was amazing. Gentle and efficient. It had been a while since my last cleaning and I am pregnant needless to say it wasn't pretty. But he didn't make me feel bad and encouraged me it would get better and got the job done. Vanessa assisted him she was very lovely and made me feel welcome as well. They had trouble with my insurance but we figured out the problem and they were all very helpful! I will be back!
Matt K. on Yelp
Had a wonderful experience. Dr. Plicka gave me an exam. Was very thorough. He referred me to a dental hygienist by the name of Chris. He cleaned my teeth with care and was was super gentle, informative, and patient with my sensitive teeth. I'm going to continue going to Chris for all my deep cleanings. Thanks guys.
Candee G. on Yelp
I have been going to Doc. Steve Johnson for many years and have been always happy with the care and service from him and his staff. From cleanings to a needed bridge, no pain, a lot of gain.
Bequi S. on Yelp
I moved out of Santa Barbara, but I will travel 5 hours back to continue to see any one of the dentists here. It's hard to find a dentist who knows where to numb you so that you don't feel a thing, not even the numbing needle! I went to them for a root canal and rather enjoyed my time there because I could see the crazy things they were doing to my tooth on a screen, I had a massage chair, TV, and I didn't feel a thing! They're always friendly, and easy going.
Enid S. on Yelp
I hardly ever post reviews but I am thrilled with the work Dr. Hlavaty did on my teeth. I kept telling my previous dentist that my front teeth just hurt. I was always told to just use Sensidyne toothpaste. Dr. Hlavaty put composite on the bottoms of the front teeth to seal the exposed dentin. The best part is he sculpted the teeth to be longer so that they no longer look worn down and like an old person's teeth. He even sculpted the first two teeth to be slightly longer. I feel like I look 30 years younger. And I didn't even pay for cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Hlavaty told me besides being worn down, the teeth had decay in them which I believe is why they hurt so much. I have dental insurance and did not neglect my teeth, but I was not told about any of this before.

I didn't even realize how bad my previous dentist was until I came to Johnson Family Dental and got excellent care. I believe I lost a tooth in the first place because my previous dentist did two temporary crowns and some extra root canal drilling and there was not enough support for all that work at once. When I got to Johnson Family Dental, I was informed that the implant that my previous dentist put in, was infected and had to come out (which JFD did take out). I was also informed that a small implant was put in instead of a large one, an old type was "hammered" in instead of screwed in and the implant was sticking out of the gum instead of flush with the gums.

In addition, having my teeth cleaned by Chris at JFD was a completely different experience than at my previous dentist office. The hygienists in the past would just gossip and clean a little. Chris completely cleaned my teeth for a long period of time, made them white again and told me I needed antibiotics in four spaces in the gums. This was probably another reason my teeth hurt in the past. So yes, I completely recommend Johnson Family Dental.
Kenneth S. on Yelp
I've needed a lot of dental work in my time, and I can say I feel in good hands here. Dentistry is like auto mechanics in that you want to feel confident that the professionals are ethical and don't fabricate problems and do unnecessary procedures. The doctors I've been with here are very professional in that regard. Dr. Hlavaty has been excellent, and the staff are very helpful when it comes to scheduling and billing. It's also nice having many specialists under one roof so you avoid the need to for referrals and additional consultations and the associated feed. In summary, I would recommend this practice to family and friends.
Scott T. on Yelp
I came in with a chipped tooth and it was fixed within an hour with fast and friendly service. It was a positive experience all the way around. The staff there are always efficient and friendly, no easy combination to pull off.
Meme T. on Yelp
This office has gone over and above (to say the very least) to assist me with my dental issue over the past year. One week I was in the office 4x just to make sure I was comfortable before the weekend. I am moving my daughter over there, too because she will appreciate their kind bedside manner. Simple teeth cleaning you need...ask for Liz! She's the best.
Barbara F. on Yelp
My husband came home with a toothache. I called the office at 9:20, we were there by 10am. He needed 2 teeth pulled & antibiotics. He was a 1st time patient. Very grateful they could see him so quickly!
CIndy F. on Yelp
My husband and I were visiting the area on a day trip when my temporary crown popped off. Panicked, I grabbed my IPad and called this office, the first on the list. To my surprise, they told me to come right over. I walked right in; Nicole took care of me...she even provided me with antibiotics (as I recently underwent hip replacement surgery) and carefully cemented back my crown. When I offered my insurance card, she refused to take it, smiled and said, "Enjoy the rest of your visit!" I will NEVER forget the kindness I was shown here! Highly recommended....
Tina P. on Yelp
I really appreciate how you honor the appointment times and I wanted to thank Liz for an as pleasant as possible experience! She always does everything she can to make sure I am comfortable and frequently checks to make sure I am doing ok! She is so professional and friendly and I wanted her to know this makes it easier to come every time and I have much less 'dental aversion' as a result of her friendly care! See you in December! Thanks much!
Em S. on Yelp
I highly recommend this clinic. It was a great experience having xrays, a check up,and clean. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The dental technician was professional and respectful. She made it clear what she was doing with each step of the process. She tried to make the experience as painless and comfortable as possible. Dr Joe was hilarious! I felt very comfortable and trusted him completely. They even gave me a welcoming package! My insurance covered everything. I will definitely be returning for another clean and check up in 6 months. I have never had such a positive experience at a dentist! Thank you!
Sarah S. on Yelp
I've been going to this dental office for about nine years and just got a new crown. Dr. Holbrook is always very cheerful and creates a relaxed environment for what is admittedly not a fun activity. He kept me informed about the whole process from start to finish and I felt confident that he was knowledgeable and skillful in his craft while enjoying his work. The rest of the staff, from the assistants and technicians to the desk personnel are all very kind and helpful. Many thanks to everybody at Johnson Family Dental in Solvang!
Jack F. on Yelp
I found a dentist where I actually enjoy getting my dental care. OK, that might be a little strong, but you get the sentiment.

The staff that provides the actual care, including the dentist(s) and the hygentist (Melia!), do an outstanding, pain-free job while digging deep into my pie hole. The rest of their team makes my visits easy, including scheduling & billing.

I know I seem to be going overboard here, but I have not had an easy time of finding a dental team that I'm comfortable digging around in my mouth. These people get as close to that comfort level as I've found in years.
Robert A. on Yelp
Ok - first of all... wow! My teeth have never been so white in my life. EVERY SINGLE PERSON was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely authentic. Malia cleaned my teeth and Dr. Kim are truly remarkable. Please clean your teeth here!!
James E. on Yelp
What a great Dentist defined. if other dentists at their bar as high as Johnson Family Dental going to the dentist would be a pleasurable experience. Dr Kimberly and Peal are great ! They had me numb, drilled and filled pain free and out the door in about an hour. The girls at the front are kind and pleasant. Thank you!
Stephanie M. on Yelp
I use to hate going to the dentist but man I love coming to this dentist office! The staff are simple wonderful and friendly and they really care about you! I would totally recommend this dentist office to anyone and everyone! This is a wonderful place and friendly place to get your teeth checked.
Rana M. on Yelp
I am new in town and was needing a new dentist. I got a mailer from Johnson Family Dentist and I liked the yearly membership deal since I do not have dental insurance I thought it was a good value.

I had a 2pm appointment for x-rays and exam (free for new patients!). I was immediately struck by the beauty and cleanliness of the office. The newest decor and modern design impressed me. There was a great hospitality center, with coffee, fresh apples and a big jar of cookies! I was greeted by a very nice receptionist and was given paperwork to fill out. After I filled out the paperwork, I was seen promptly at my appointment time. The technician that did my x-rays was great (I can't remember her name!). I then saw Dr. Smith. He was super friendly and personable and gave me my exam and went over what treatment I need. I felt at ease with him and I am VERY VERY nervous in dental offices.

Next I had a cleaning with a great hygienist. I believe her name was Marina. She was funny, friendly, and did a great job cleaning my teeth. It wasn't painful at all (this office offered a great numbing mouthwash for sensitive patients like me which really helped).

I will be back to have my cavities filled soon and I'm actually not freaked out to go back!

Thank you all for a great experience!
Jenny B. on Yelp
I have an enormous fear of dental work. This is verified by the condition my teeth are(were) in. Everyone and I mean everyone I have had the pleasure of speaking with or had working on my teeth has made me feel comfortable, at home and not at all ashamed by the situation I find myself in. You all have truly saved me!! I love you guys! Client for life!!

Thank you Dr Smith , Jonathan and everyone else(sorry, I was sedated and didn't catch all of your names)
Maria H. on Yelp
I ended up trying Johnson dental. At first felt a little weird because it took awhile to call back for info about wisdom teeth. But I went back for a cleaning yesterday and I had a wonderful experience. Their dental plan is phenomenal! And my teeth feel great, even after one cleaning. Scheduled my wisdom teeth, and it was cheaper than I thought it'd be. The surgeon was happy to answer any questions- and I had a lot. Feel really good knowing he is taking my wisdom teeth out. I am going to be sticking with them for a loooong time. I'm a very happy customer.
Maria S. on Yelp
I can't say enough good about this place and all the staff. Dr. Kim is great, and she makes you feel really comfortable. My son has an appointment coming up and asked if he could wear his new football jersey to show Dr. Kim. Shows me that she really talks to him, and he feels like he has a friendship with her. Thought it was awesome. Always super clean, and the front desk is amazing, always remembers me and my children by name. Awesome dentist and Orthodontist.
Tammy C. on Yelp
I went to this dentist hoping they can fix all the mistakes western dental did. I went in there and the whole staff is,so welcoming and helpful. Dr kim , bonnie gonzales, the hygienist I was so nervous I can't remember her name. They were so helpful and listened to my concerns. Gave me a really cool mri to determine what could be done. Well alot can be done. They are gonna fit me with implants redo my teeth I already have and assured me everything is gonna be ok.. I love love this place! Thank you everyone at Johnson family dental.
Raven C. on Yelp
This place is like a dream! They make everyone feel like they're special. From the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out it was a great experience, the best experience I've ever had. They have a very well put together gorgeous waiting area. They had a huge jar of cookies, green apples, water and juice in the waiting room. The bathroom was clean too. I didn't have to wait long either after I filled out my paperwork my name was called. I was greeted with a warm smile from Irali. She was really sweet, fun but professional and welcoming. She knew what she was doing. The hygienist was really sweet too and so was Dr. Smith. Everybody I met was beyond welcoming. Your'll leave here wishing that every place you went to would be like this. I have Ocd & Cleanliness is very important to me. The office was immaculate. Everything was up-to-date and the technology is crazy, so cool. They took x-rays, photos and then an exam and everything was explained to me and papers were given to me to take home. I was so happy with my visit I almost skipped out of there, oh yeah they have some nice pens that I stole a couple ;) 5 Stars for sure!! The one thing I would say is that they are a bit pricey but I guess you get what you pay for.
Martina A. on Yelp
Today i went for my bi-yearly exam and cleaning and i am good to go. i love the wonderful person who cleans my teeth, malia. she has my second granddaughter's name and she also has her beautiful smile too. malia cleans my teeth by hand nicely, and is very careful to get off all my built up plaque. she is very professional but yet also down to earth. today we talked about one of our favorite subjects, breastfeeding. she just had a beautiful baby boy and she is making sure to give him the beat start in life....a breast fed baby grows into a very healthy child who grows into a very healthy adult.

I also had the pleasure of meeting david their dental manager, i had not had the pleasure of meeting previously. he is very nice and very helpful and well informed.

My dentist Dr. kim, is excellent, committed, young, and very pretty. she is also very smart, no wonder, her mother is a dentist. All of the staff at johnson family dentist are very helpful and polite.

I highly endorse this dental office with all five stars because they deserve them. this family dental practice is all over the map. reaching out to communities because they are committed to making a difference. Thank you, to you all at johnson family dentist. I am thankful to be one of your favorite patients.

Had some business to take care of today and I had the pleasure of speaking with a knowledgable, helpful and kind human being. Thank you Alex for all of your assistance. I can see why the JFD has welcomed you into their family. I love this dental office. They have always take such good care of me and my family.

Just moved to Santa Barbara and one of my doctors recommended Johnson Dental. They were easy to get an appointment, easy to find and easy parking. The reception people were very nice and efficient. Each person I encountered welcomed me to the practice.

Great experience!! I had a tooth that had to be extracted last week. I was super nervous and not looking forward to it. Dr. Kim and the rest of the office were awesome. They were kind, funny, fast and professional. It actually wasn't that bad. I will be going back! Thank you!
Loretta A. on Yelp
This is an awesome dentist! First I call them letting them know, we are having our tire fixed and are walking to there office, and might be late. We were about 1.5 miles away and it was a hot day. Without hesitation the lady (Bonnie) let me know where to pick you up; I will come get you.

She shows up about 10 mins later, with two cold waters waiting and drives us to the office.

During our appointment my wife and I discover we need a lot of critical work done...Oy Vey! Well it's of course way above what our insurance will cover. So Bonnie immediately has all the credit application ready for us. We fill it out and approved! After which Bonnie decides that if she increases one of our limits we would pay a lot less on payments and interest!!! Thank you Bonnie!

Not over!

My wife and I needed to run to two other appointments (one of which to pick up our car). She promptly pulls the car around and drives us both to our two separate appointments!!!

Amazing Dentist office!! Go Bonnie!!!!
Shaun C. on Yelp
I had a wonderful experience at Johnson Family Dental. The staff was extremely professional and the office was super nice. Pearl and Malia did great work on my teeth and made me feel at ease. There was a tv right above me to take my mind off sitting in the chair, while I was getting worked on. All in all I had a great time and would recommend anyone going to this office.
Renee T. on Yelp
Awesome office!! From the meticulous design of the office to every single staff member...incredible!! Everyone is so friendly and down to earth, yet professional. I am extremely pleased with our new dental office and will most definitely be referring the rest of my family and friends here!!
Hugh H. on Yelp
Just want to say thank you for the courteous and professional attention I received from Dr. Matlotky and her assistant Iraeli. This was my first visit with Dr. M so I was a bit concerned however after my appointment I will agree and testify with others that she is an excellent, caring dentist.
Judith M. on Yelp
Johnson family dentistry has always been so nice and super supportive, at there annual dental day I got an extraction done. It went so fast and smith I was very please. Thank you so much.
Jillian G. on Yelp
This dental office is amazing. They have the latest technology and are very knowledgeable about all procedures, and really make you feel comfortable. Ashley their dental hygienist makes the process even better she has the perfect balance. She makes you forget your at the dentist, while still being professional. They also have the best cookies to sweeten the experience and offer financing.
Jim K. on Yelp
Soo four sessions with Dr Truong and Kelly and now I am amalgamate free. This is such a relief for me, 44 years of mercury saturation was more than enough brain damage for me.

Dental amalgam is a mixture of mercury, silver, tin and copper. Mercury, which makes up about 50% of the compound, is used to bind the metals together and to provide a strong, hard, durable filling. What they don't tell you is that over time, amalgamate expands and breaks your teeth.

Mercury is the most poisonous, non-radioactive, naturally occurring substance on our planet. There is no safe level of mercury because even one atom of it in your body is doing some harm to it. There is no debate about the toxicity of mercury and every knowledgeable scientist and health professional understands how poisonous mercury is. Yet even today the American Dental Association (ADA) and pro-amalgam dentists who support its insane, logic defying position, continue to say that the mercury released from these fillings is not a health hazard.

Watch this:

That being said, huge kudos and thanks to my team @ Johnson Family Dental for not only clearing me of these toxins but putting themselves in harms way to make it happen. This was a well orchestrated set of events, there was no pain except where I bit my inner cheek while it was still numb... fat bruise.

If you need any dental care Johnson's is the place.

I arrived at 7:55AM for my 8 AM appt. no one was in the office yet but I spied several peeps I recognized parking and heading in, I was parked right in front, Dr Truong was about the 3rd person in, he immediately helped one of the girls open the blinds in the front of the office with a big smile ..did I mention what a great team they are with passion! WOW!! everyone works together, even to get the store open, good stuff.

I like when you go some place and they call you by name too, and that's everyone in the office not just the doc and the front peeps

The sad thing is I'm outta Teeth, just have to wait till my next cleaning in April to see these fine folks again.
Marcia R. on Yelp
I used to see Dr. Reed and when he retired I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I decided to try my friends dentist since I needed a bridge for my two lower front teeth that were loose. Their office was friendly and they took X-rays and told me what they thought needed to be done, gave me a price, which I thought was high and I left. I decided to take a chance on Johnson Family Dental, since they bought Dr. Reeds practice and are in Camarillo. i went in and had my free x-rays and found out that they use digital x-rays, not the old fashion kind the other dentist used. They found a large cavity that the other dentist missed, you could see it clearly on the x-ray, so I decided to have that taken care of and then have the bridge done when the crown was completed. The price was the same as the other dentist but now it included the crown. I was lucky I didn't need a root canal.

Dr. Truong was wonderful. I, like most people, hate shots but with all the shots I have had over the years, Dr. Truong is the only dentist I have ever used where I did not feel the needle going in. He did a great job on the crown and an even better job on the bridge. The bridge is on the lower front 4 teeth and it looks and feel amazing. My temporary bridge fell out and I needed it put back in so I immediately went to the office, walked in and was helped within a few minutes. When the permanent bridge came in the Dr. Didn't like something about the fit so he sent the bridge back. He did this a few times because he is perfectionist and wanted it to fit perfectly and now I have perfect lower front teeth and no one would ever know it is a bridge.

The staff is great, friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend this dental practice to anyone who is looking for a new dentist or wanting to make a change.
Tammy C. on Yelp
This is by far the best dental office that I have visited. Dr. Truong was very helpful in explaining how he planned on removing my old crown and replacing it with a new porcelain crown. He was very detailed, professional, friendly and caring. The staff was also very friendly and helpful as they helped answer my questions and book my appointments. I plan on coming back in 6 months to get my annual checkup. I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends.
Susan A. on Yelp
Awesome new location in Camarillo; I have been going to Johnson Family Dental for 14 years, in Santa Barbara and now Camarillo. For the last 3, Ashley has been my hygienist and I had to follow her down to the new office. She is the BEST! Honest, quick, efficient, pain free and FUN!

Very positive experience. I've been dentist phobic for most of my life, but Johnson Family Dental in Santa Barbara was able to put me at ease and to take care of the tooth extraction with a minimum of muss, fuss, or pain. Excellent! Highly recommended!
Kevin G. on Google
Great Doctors, Great Staff, Great Service. I was told by another DDS that my son would need to see an Oral Surgeon, went to Johnson Family Dental for a second opinion and they were able to take care of the extraction in that same visit! Saved me alot of $ and hassle. Nice having a DDS that can take care of almost anything, and get personalized service!

I recently came in as a new patient, Heather was the first person I met, she was amazing. She took the time to introduce herself to me, explained every step of my exam.

My family has been coming to the Solvang office for years. Dr Holbrook and Dr Winn are both wonderful dentists. I especially like that they make me feel like apart of their family. My grandkids love coming too! Finding the right dental office is individual. The staff is friendly, and understanding. Liz and Brit are great hygienists too. I would recommend you call and schedule an appointment today!
Susan M. on Google
I had a great experience at Johnson Dental Family. The staff is always cheerful especially in the early morning and you are always welcome. My procedure was painless and my dentist made sure that I was comfortable. I like it when you want something done they will include you insurance and tell you need to pay out of pocket. I like that because I don't like surprises.
Jon P. on Google
I've been going to Johnson Family Dental since it opened in Solvang and have previously went to the one in SB since I was a kid - always highly professional and up with the latest techniques. Highly recommend! Their whole staff is very professional and friendly. I've personally gone to Dr. Steve and Dr. Joe and they are both amazing.
Greg S. on Google
Once upon a time I was scared to come to the dentist. It wasn't until Liz, a very excellent hygienist just cleaned my teeth and thus the world of clean teeth was now my reality. thank you very much Johnson dentistry for wonderful hygienist like Liz and Britney. :-)
Gary S. on Google
Dr. Kim was fantastic! She mentored assistants patiently along the way. She took time with you and made you comfortable, so you didn't feel she was in a rush to get to her next patient. She was always ready to stop and explain details. It has been a wonderful experience compared to offices I've been to that were money hungry and unkind.

All the people at Johnson dental in midtown Ventura are caring and helpful. If visiting the dentist can ever be pleasant-it would be here. Additionally and importantly they're as competent as they are courteous. I highly recommend Johnson Family Dental.
Jonathan F. on Google
When I first walked into Johnson Family Dental I was amazed at the cleanliness of the office the friendly smiles and personalities. I had an appointment at 9:00am and was in my opertory by 8:55am. The staff there is very informative and educated in there specific job title. The assistant that helped me was a guy which was different for me it was the time I'd had a male assistant, he was so personable and made me feel at ease. I would and have recommended this office to my friends and family. So if you are looking for a dental office that knows what they're doing and does great work go check them out..

I absolute love coming here the office is so unique compared to the other office I've been to, they have fresh 🍪 cookies, juice and water that are available to us while we are waiting to be seen. The greeters at that front are super friendly and helpful always nice to see them when coming in. The doctors are super nice and genuine they make me feel like an actual person and not a number like other offices. They definitely pay attention to detail. I will recommend them any day!!

From the front desk to the dentist herself, the entire process was very impressive. No one loves going to the dentist, but this was enjoyable considering! My standards have now been raised!

Amazing service!!!! I would definitely come back here. I've been with the same dentist for years and I was having a horrible tooth ache and couldnt get back to see him. They squeezed me in the same day and did not make me wait long at all. They did an emergency root canal and made sure the whole time I was comfortable. I have never been to such a professional dentist office in my life.

Our family has been going to Johnson Family Dental for 3 years now and have enjoyed every visit. The staff are super friendly and our kids enjoy going to the dentist. My 5 year old had a minor procedure done and was very nervous at first but smiling after it was complete. She got a local anesthetic to numb her gums and never even knew she had a huge syringe in her mouth thanks to distractions and teamwork on the staffs part.

I had the best experience at Johnson family dental! Everyone was so nice when I walked in. They all greeted me with a warm friendly smile. I came in for a routine cleaning. My hygienist was Ashley. She was fabulous! The cleaning was quick and painless, and she made me feel comfortable the whole time! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that needs dental care.

My husband and I received excellent care and kind consideration at the Camarillo Johnson Family Dental Office. Our dentist of 20 years retired, and we were nervous of having anyone else tend to our dental care. But Dr. Truong and his team of professional assistants had us feeling at ease immediately. The office itself is bright & welcoming. The exam/treatment rooms are modern, fully equipped and well maintained. The entire office runs like a well-oiled machine. We expect to enjoy a long relationship with our new family dentist & crew!.

Had a great experience here. I showed up 30 minutes early and was greeted with a smile. The staff accommodated and showed me to the back, even though they seemed busy. My assistant Jana'e was very nice and professional. Dr. Troung was great at explaining and performing the procedure. Overall great experience, highly recommend.

Staff was friendly and didn't hide anything from me cost-wise when the time came to choose how I wanted to get the procedure done. The procedure itself was pain free and well explained to me at all times. I'll be coming back.

Great office and staff! greeted with a friendly smile and was even offered snacks and a drink! you can tell the employees love to work here and they go beyond to make you feel comfortable (which for me - at a dental office, is extremly hard). I came with a lot of questions - unfortunately i have had a lot of teeth filled and even a couple root canals but Dr. Troung answered them with knowledge and experience. I have a couple teeth that need work and i am very confident going forward with Dr. Troung and his staff! and a shout out to the dental assistant Vanessa, she took my mind off the fact i was at the dentist and she was very professional and nice.

I had such a great experience at the Camarillo office that I would recommend everyone choosing them for any type of work that is needed. They are All so wonderful, happy, work so well together, and always makes sure that our experience when we're there we feel like family. Watching how they treat everyone who walks in the door and calling the regular patients by name makes me feel so comfortable and happy that customer service is still alive. Now days you go into places and there is "No" longer any true customer service and this place makes me feel like I'm welcomed. Customer service is the most important thing to me, since that's what I've done for over 38 years. I will continue going to them as long as the team stays together, Yesiñia, Vanessa, Dr. Troung, Ashley and others. Thank you for ALWAYS making me feel like I matter to all of you.

I was in Santa Barbara visiting when I developed an abscess that was very painful. I was seen the day I called and was treated immediately by Dr Steven and assistant. Both were very professional and received excellent care. They explained exactly what they were going to do and made sure I experienced no pain. They made sure my crown was completed before I left town to return home. The office dealt with my out of state insurance and my bill was reasonable.

I have to say that this is the best office that I have ever worked for. I have been working as a dental hygienist for 10 years and have worked at a few different offices over the years. I'm the newest addition to the team after moving to Lompoc in September and love it every day I work. Greatest staff and nicest doctor hands down.

We love all the staff at Johnson Family Dental. Everyone is professional and friendly. Dr. Halterman is the best and we love Jason, the hygienist.

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.

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!

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.

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.
