Open for new and existing patients - Feel Safe
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!
If you want straight teeth but don’t want a lengthy, expensive orthodontic treatment, it’s time to learn about Fastbraces. An affordable and efficient alternative to traditional braces, Fastbraces are a revolutionary way to transform your smile quickly.
When teeth are crooked, overlapped, or tilted, they have not erupted straight as they should have. Fastbraces uses innovative technology and a high-performing bracket system to upright each tooth so it is in alignment. The entire treatment is designed to be more convenient and effective than conventional braces.
The triangular-shaped brackets of Fastbraces alter the force-flexibility of braces, working in conjunction with an incredibly elastic nickel-titanium wire. This combo allows for the correction of the position of each tooth root from the very start of treatment, using the natural temperature of the mouth to expedite movement.
Traditional orthodontic treatment moves the crowns of the teeth in the first year and the roots of the teeth in the second year. Fastbraces eliminates delayed root movement and instead realigns crown and root at the same time.
A course of Fastbraces takes about 3 months to 1 year to complete. Traditional braces take 1.5 to 3 years to complete. Every patient’s case is unique though, and the time required for alignment will depend on the severity of your misalignment and how much the bite and teeth must be shifted.
The high-performing bracket system that defines Fastbraces can correct nearly every misalignment issue that conventional braces treats, including:
Braces are braces, and there will naturally be some inconveniences to wearing hardware on your teeth while your bite moves into alignment. However, Fastbraces outperforms conventional braces in many areas. Some of the perks include:
The Fastbraces brackets and wires are available in a ceramic, tooth-colored shade so they are discreet and hardly noticeable. You’ll technically be a brace-face, but you certainly won’t look like one, which makes this a great option for adults who want to align their smiles without feeling like a teenager.
When tooth roots and crowns are being shifted, there is naturally some pressure and discomfort – it’s a big job that those braces are doing. This technology, however, reduces sliding friction, so teeth are moved more gently and pain is reduced.
When your orthodontic treatment takes less time and materials and effort, the cost is dramatically reduced too.
Retainers are a non-negotiable after orthodontics, no matter what kind you wear. Retainer wear for Fastbraces patients, however, is usually only necessary for about 20 minutes a day, though each case will vary.
Braces are a bit of a chore to clean, digging in and around those brackets and wires to remove food and build-up and plaque. Less wear time means a minimal interruption of your usual oral health routine and the maintenance of healthy, cavity-free teeth.
Braces don’t have to be an inconvenience or a years-long journey that is painful and annoying. Fastbraces combines the effectiveness of conventional metal braces with a clear, patented, bracket-and-wire solution. This technology is changing the way orthodontics are done – for teens and adults.

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.
