    • 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 has always been a link between oral health and overall health and wellness. Now a California dental surgeon believes there is a link between gum disease and severe COVID-19 complications. Many people are avoiding the dentist because they worry about coronavirus exposure, but now it’s more important than ever to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy.

    Gum Disease Feeds COVID-19

    Dr. Shervin Molayem, a Beverly Hills dental surgeon, noticed that when dental offices began reopening after the initial wave of COVID-19, many patients had been severely neglecting their teeth. Stress, depression, changing habits, and missed dental appointments are all possible factors in this neglect. Now is one of the worst times to ignore the health of your teeth.

    Molayem initiated a study to examine the links between gum disease and COVID-19. The results of his research suggest that gum disease patients who have high levels of interleukin 6 (IL-6) – an inflammatory marker – when infected with COVID-19 are far more likely to suffer from severe respiratory problems and be hospitalized.

    Numerous studies have long shown that the inflammation present in gum disease is connected to a person’s long-term risk of heart disease. Molayem’s theory is that COVID-19 symptoms are also linked to inflammation. “When we get plaque in our mouths and into our gums, what that does is the IL-6 and other inflammatory proteins get released locally,” the dentist says. These proteins travel quickly to the lining of the lungs and other organs. He says a German study that connects high levels of IL-6 in critically ill COVID-19 patients spurred his own research. “It showed that these IL-6 levels, when over 80, are a predictor for being on a ventilator.”

    Protect Your Teeth and Gums

    Keeping your teeth clean all the time is so important. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and seeing your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and checkup will help protect you from oral health problems and improve your overall health and wellness.

    Now, more than ever, it’s essential to see your dentist for your biannual visit so you can be checked for gum disease, other infections, tooth decay, and more. Identifying these problems quickly before they have a chance to grow and addressing them immediately prevents complications from developing. Keeping a healthy mouth also, if the California dentist’s research is on point, can keep you from experiencing some of the worst COVID-19 symptoms should you develop the disease.

    Getting teeth cleanings lowers inflammation. Not only does it help ward off coronavirus complications, studies have shown that patients with other respiratory infections like pneumonia have improved symptoms after a teeth cleaning.

    The New Dental Normal

    Your Fort Lauderdale dentist is taking all precautions to keep every patient safe, including wearing additional protective gear, minimizing the number of people in the office at one time, monitoring all patients and staff for symptoms of coronavirus, and increasing cleaning frequency. You can feel safe and well cared for at the Premier Smile Center. Contact us today to schedule your cleaning and checkup with Dr. Charmaine Johnson.
