    • 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!

    Research in the area of periodontal or gum disease and rheumatoid arthritis in the last 2 years has confirmed long-standing observed associations between the two disease processes. New observations have demonstrated that periodontal disease is present, and severe, early in the rheumatoid arthritis disease process. 

    Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the cells that line the joints by mistake. Exactly what causes this response is still unclear.

    There has always been a long-standing observational link between gum disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis, with Hippocrates (commonly referred to as the ‘father of modern western medicine’) suggesting centuries ago that pulling teeth could cure arthritis. 

    People with Rheumatoid Arthritis appear to face an increased risk of developing gum disease and are more likely to suffer from more severe symptoms. After diagnosis with Rheumatoid Arthritis, people may notice more bleeding whilst brushing, gums receding and loss of teeth.

    A study in 2012, reported that 65% of Rheumatoid Arthritis patients had gum disease compared with just 28% of patients without RA. They found that Rheumatoid Arthritis patients were four times more likely to have gum disease than their Rheumatoid Arthritis-free counterparts and their gum disease tended to be more severe. 

    People with RA and the doctors treating the disease need to be vigilant for early signs of gum disease to prevent serious infection.”

    Problems with joints in RA (including the jaw joint) can also make cleaning more difficult; leading to more plaque being left in the mouth and therefore an increased likelihood of developing gum disease. However, it is thought that this alone does not account for the increased prevalence of gum disease in the RA population. 

    Other findings include the following:

    • Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis), one of the main bacteria responsible for gum disease can lead to earlier onset, faster progression and greater severity of RA, including increased damage to bone and cartilage. 
    • Concentration of antibodies against P. gingivalis is increased before the onset of rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
    • Gum disease is established and often more severe in patients with RA and characteristics of gum disease are similar in patients with early and established RA. 
    • Self-reported gum bleeding and swelling remained significantly associated with higher RA disease activity scores. 
    • Gum disease symptoms are associated with increasing RA activity; patients with more bleeding and swelling tend to have higher levels of RA disease activity.

    Attention to good oral hygiene should increasingly become an important part of RA management.

    Our skilled and competent hygienists at Premier Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale deliver gentle, thorough cleanings using the latest procedures and advanced equipment. Gum disease won’t go away on its own. Allow us to help you get healthy. Contact us today for an appointment.
