    • 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!

    Gum disease begins when teeth are not cared for properly, but the discomfort and side effects of this condition are always treatable, no matter the condition of your teeth. Laser dentistry, also known as LANAP or laser gum surgery, can get your smile into working order. It’s so important to make your teeth a priority – periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults.

    How You Develop Gum Disease

    Gum disease develops in stages, from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis. When you see your dentist regularly, you are checked for signs of gum disease and any problems can be addressed before they get out of hand. Unfortunately, too many people neglect their twice-annual visits to the dentist because of anxiety, cost, or time, which allows more bacteria and plaque to gather, and more time for gum disease to grow. Some people may also not take great care of their teeth at home, which sets the stage for infection.

    Signs of gum disease begin with redness, inflammation, and bleeding – symptoms that can be easily overlooked or written off as something else. As the infection progresses, pain will come from the gathering of pus and bacteria around the teeth. In the later stages of periodontitis, the gums will pull away from the teeth, causing the teeth to loosen in their sockets, leading to tooth loss.

    If any of this sounds familiar or you suspect you have gum disease lurking in your mouth, LANAP laser dentistry can be your solution.

    Understanding LANAP

    LANAP laser dentistry targets the diseased areas of the gums to reduce inflammation and blast away infection. This treatment usually takes a few sessions to completely treat the entire mouth.

    • Application of local anesthetic
    • Super-fine, high-powered laser inserted between infected tooth and gum
    • Laser recognizes and avoids healthy tissue, focusing on diseased areas
    • Minimally invasive procedure
    • Cleared by the FDA as a method of periodontal regeneration, which enables the reattachment of gum tissues and new bone growth

    Tender, painful gums and loose teeth are not easy to live with or tolerate day in and day out. The thought of anyone working on your teeth can be daunting. When compared to the invasiveness of conventional gum disease treatment, however, laser dentistry is quite gentle. There is no need to move gum tissue, cut away infected tissue, or perform bone grafting.

    LANAP is known as the “no cut, no sew, no fear” treatment:

    • No scalpels or sutures,
    • Less pain
    • Less sensitivity
    • Minimal bleeding
    • Less swelling
    • Reduced bum loss or recession
    • Reduced likelihood of post-op infection
    • Fast, comfortable healing
