  • Everything I have had done at Premier Smile Center has been top-notch. The treatment I received was thorough, precise and extremely professional. I never felt like just another patient because they took the time to listen to my concerns. They addressed my issues and we agreed on the treatment plan together.

    The staff is very friendly, warm and extremely knowledgeable. I felt relaxed and comfortable knowing I chose the right place to get the dental work I needed. Dr. Johnson is very humane and very knowledgeable, and she does amazing work. I like the friendliness and honesty of the whole practice. I was not confident with my smile, in fact I was very self conscious and rarely smiled. Premier Smile Center has changed all that. My smile is one of the things I like the most.

  • I was terrified to receive a root canal, but I knew it had to be done. After meeting with Dr. Johnson and Dr. Bui, I felt better about the procedure. They educated me on the process. I was comfortable and had no pain—which was my biggest worry. I love coming to the office. Everyone is super friendly and knowledgeable. The doctors and staff educate you on what they are doing and why it is needed.

    The dentist was a place I visited only when I desperately needed to, and now I’m in the office every few months. I don’t live near the office anymore, but as long as they’re there, I will be driving over to Fort Lauderdale. Thanks to Premier Smile Center, I now have healthy, pearly white and almost perfectly straight teeth.

  • When I first came to the practice, my teeth were in terrible condition. From the beginning to the end of my treatment, Dr. Johnson and her entire practice were outstanding, professional and extremely understanding of my needs. Dr. Johnson is honest and very hands-on, and the practice feels like a family and not a factory. Thanks to Dr. Johnson, I now have a great smile.

  • Coming to Premier Smile Center was a life-changing experience for me. Although I was a registered nurse, I had the worst teeth ever—a missing tooth, discolored teeth and a crooked smile. Dr. Johnson explained to me in detail how she could give me a beautiful smile. She and her staff have been truly supportive and non-judgmental about my teeth. Dr. Johnson is compassionate, understanding and a joy to talk to, and the staff are friendly, efficient and caring. They encouraged me to go on when I was feeling down, and now I can smile confidently.

    The treatment I received has greatly increased my self-esteem. I can smile and laugh unashamedly and join into a group conversation, and not just be a passive listener. I also have better health and nutrition. It is the best investment I have ever made for myself.

  • Premier Smile Center has always treated me like family, and my experience as a patient of Dr. Johnson’s has been nothing but satisfactory. Dr. Johnson is brilliant, and the practice is clean, friendly and professional. Before I came to the office, the condition of my teeth was depressing. As a result of my treatment, I have more confidence and less anxiety associated with a messed-up mouth.

  • Before coming to Premier Smile Center, I had not been to a dentist in some time. I needed some periodontal work done, fillings and wisdom tooth extractions. What initially struck me was the warm welcome I received from the front office staff, and I had virtually no wait time before I was greeted by Dr. Johnson. She was incredibly professional and explained everything she was doing as she conducted the initial exam. She made her recommendations and scheduled a return visit to repair some fillings and pull two wisdom teeth.

    What was truly amazing was that within 24 hours Dr. Johnson herself called to check on me and asked how my experience was. My wisdom tooth extractions went flawlessly, and I experienced very little bleeding and no pain during or after the procedure. Again, Dr. Johnson called me afterward to check how I was doing. I like Dr. Johnson’s warm and sincere concern for her patients, and I also like her professional staff. I am always impressed by the warm, professional nature of everyone in the office.

  • From the moment I arrived at Premier Smile Center over a year ago, Dr. Johnson and her entire staff have been amazing. Needless to say, anytime you have a cosmetic procedure done there will be nerves and lots of questions. Within minutes into my initial consultation, these concerns subsided. Unlike other dental practices I have been to, Dr. Johnson took her time and explained what I should expect from beginning to end with Invisalign. I continue to receive compliments on my smile every day. I love it! I have already and would recommend her again to anyone I know. A huge thank you to Dr. Johnson and the Premier Smile Center staff for making my experience fabulous!

There’s so much information out there about this virus, it’s often hard to discern what is real and what is a myth. Here are some myths according to the WHO.

  • The virus cannot be transmitted in hot, humid environments.
  • False – The virus is transmitted in all environments. 
  • Taking a hot bath prevents you from catching the virus
  • False – your body temperature remains around 36.5 – 37 degrees celcius even in a hot bath
  • Coronavirus can be transmitted through mosquito bites.
  • False – coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. 
  • Are hand dryers effective in killing the virus?
  • No. Hand dryers are not effective in killing the coronavirus. To protect yourself against it, you should frequently clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
  • Can an ultra-violet disinfection lamp kill the virus
  • No. UV lamps should not be used to sterilize hands or other areas of skin as UV radiation can cause skin irritation.
  • Can spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body, kill the virus?
  • No. Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. It is harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). However, alcohol and chlorine can be useful to disinfect surfaces, but they need to be used under appropriate recommendations.
  • Can regularly rinsing your nose with saline prevent infection from the virus?
  • No. There is some limited evidence that regularly rinsing your nose with saline can help people recover more quickly from the common cold. However, regularly rinsing the nose has not been shown to prevent respiratory infections.
  • Can eating garlic help prevent infection from the virus?
  • Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties but there is no evidence that eating garlic has protected people from the virus.
  • Are antibiotics effective in preventing and treating the virus?
  • No. Antibiotics work against bacteria and not viruses. Now if you are in the hospital and you develop a bacterial infection on top of having the virus, the antibiotics will help with the bacterial infection.
  • Do vaccines against pneumonia protect you against the virus?
  • No. The virus is new and there is no vaccine available yet. Vaccines are in human trials now.

Don’t neglect your oral health during this time. Premier Dental Center is open for emergency dental appointments only. If you are experiencing severe swelling, bleeding, or have suffered a dental injury, please call our office to be seen.
