    • 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!

    We’ve had a few questions regarding whitening treatments.  Is there one better than the other?  What’s the difference between over-the-counter (OTC) products versus in-office teeth whitening products?  We’ve come up with the answers to your questions below, based on the dentist’s expertise and scientific evidence.

    You may have seen items that have been promoted by the press as an alternative to teeth whitening, including household items such as acidic fruits, vinegar, products containing charcoal and the practice of oil pulling.  There are LIMITED studies to date on these approaches and this raises questions regarding efficacy and safety.  Acidic foods, vinegar and activated charcoal toothpaste can lead to enamel wear and weakening.  There are no studies to date that confirm the benefit of whitening with oil pulling.

    Here is a list of OTC teeth whitening products that are both safe and effective:

    Here are dentist-supervised methods that are both safe and effective:

    1. At-home whitening gel and custom tray: gel is placed in customized trays made to fit comfortably and minimize contact of the gel with the gum tissue.  Treatment time varies.  Optimal results within 2 weeks of daily use.
    2. In-office tooth whitening products such as Boost and KOR whitening: involves application of a peroxide-containing gel with the use of a barrier to protect your gum tissue.  These whitening treatments have higher concentrations and normally take either 1-2 x 40min visits to complete treatment.

    Things to keep in mind when whitening:

    1. Tooth-colored restorations cannot be whitened, only your natural teeth.
    2. Temporary tooth sensitivity/gingival inflammation are potential adverse effects.  You may reduce the amount of sensitivity by either pre-op use of anti-inflammatory drugs, or application of topical fluoride.
    3. Avoid eating/drinking foods that would stain.
    4. The type of tooth stain can also affect the length of and/or number of treatments required.
    5. While OTC products are less expensive than dentist-supervised methods, there is a time trade-off.

    Given the situation we are in now with Covid19, you can give these at-home products a try. If you are looking for something that is more timely, predictable, and immediate results, we’d be happy to help you do this at Premier Smile Center with our in-office teeth whitening systems.
