  • 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.

Are there one or two things about your smile that you dislike, characteristics you would change if you could? For many people, porcelain veneers are the aesthetic fix that creates the perfect smile. You shouldn’t have to hide your mouth behind your hand or avoid smiling wide because you’re embarrassed about the appearance of your teeth. Veneers can fix just about every cosmetic issue there is.

tooth decay

Many patients ask me, in frustration, how they can reduce their chances of cavities and tooth decay.

Yes, having to visit the dentist often because of cavities is very frustrating!

Let’s start by answering the following questions:

  • Do you sip soft drinks or other sugary drinks (including coffee or tea with milk and sugar) all day at your desk?
  • Do you use breath mints or eat candy often?
  • Instead of eating meals, do you snack all day?
  • Do you often grab a soda, sports or energy drink when you are tired?
  • Do you miss your regular dental checkup and cleanings?
  • Are you inconsistent with your brushing and flossing habits?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may be raising your risk of cavities and tooth decay.

beautiful smile

We can all make a list of everything we are proud of. As a dentist, one of the things that make me happy is if a patient is proud of their smile.

For some, it may be a healthy, clean and cavity free smile. For others it may be a sparkling, white and dazzling smile. Either way, your smile is integral to your health and happiness. The way we talk or eat, and the way we feel about ourselves are all affected by the state of our smile.

As a dentist, I look at a person’s smile from 4 major areas:

  1. The health of the gums and bone – this is the foundation that holds the teeth in place. You may have the most beautiful teeth but if the foundation is poor, the teeth will fall out.
  2. Cavity free and infection free teeth
  3. The bite and position of the teeth – many times, the way we bite can cause a great deal of damage and fractures of the teeth
  4. Cosmetics and the beauty of our smile

bad breath

We all know someone with bad breath. Unfortunately, most people don’t know that they have it and only your children or grandchildren will tell you!!!!!

So, how does one eliminate bad breath?

  1. Firstly, determine if you have bad breath or not by asking a significant other or your dentist. It is normally difficult to determine bad breath on yourself.
  2. Some odor causing foods like onions and garlic can cause the bad odor to come out through your lungs for up to 24 hours after ingestion. Try to reduce the intake of these foods.
  3. Examine the back of your tongue for a tongue coat. The tongue harbors 50% of the total bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria produce sulphide odors which is the smell of rotten eggs. This is the main source of most bad breath. We suggest using a tongue scarier to scrape the very back of the tongue. Do this 10-15 times every morning. A toothbrush is not as effective. It is like using a broom to clean a shag carpet.

The coronavirus is all anyone can think about right now, but one way to take a break from all the heavy news is to think about the good things ahead.

You can plan for the future and look forward to the many ways life will improve. If you’ve long been considering ways to improve your smile, now is the time to research cosmetic dentistry treatments so you’re prepared to discuss the details with your Fort Lauderdale dentist when the time comes.

1. Minimal-Prep Porcelain Veneers

Plenty of people used to be wary of porcelain veneers. They wanted the look, but they didn’t want to go on the road to get there – the removal of tooth enamel. Now, minimal-prep and no-prep veneers barely alter your natural teeth before the veneers are bonded permanently in place.

Now that dental offices are only seeing emergency patients and not doing any elective procedures, I want to shed some light on what is considered an emergency procedure.

According to The American Dental Association, emergency procedures are: “potentially life threatening and require immediate treatment to stop ongoing tissue bleeding [or to] alleviate severe pain or infection.”

Conditions include uncontrolled bleeding; soft tissue bacterial infections with swelling that potentially compromises the patient’s airway; or trauma involving facial bones that potentially compromises the patient’s airway.”

Examples of urgent dental care treatments, include:

Some key positive things about coronavirus.

a) For most people, the immediate risk of becoming seriously ill from the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. Older adults and people with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, lung disease, or heart disease are at a greater risk.

b) Someone who has completed quarantine or has been released from isolation does not pose a risk of infection to other people.

c) There are simple things you can do to help yourself and others:
