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!
The first step of root canal treatment is detailed digital X-rays, using a very low dose of radiation. Dr. Bui is a highly experienced root canal treatment specialist and only performs root canals when they are absolutely necessary.
A root canal is a hollow area inside your tooth which contains blood vessels, nerves and soft tissue, often referred to as “pulp.” These tissues sometimes become infected, causing pain, swelling and abscesses. This endangers the tooth and possibly leads to tooth loss. If left untreated, the infection can spread to other parts of the jaw.
Dr. Bui, our highly skilled in-house endodontist (root canal specialist), performs expert root canal treatment to remove the infected area and preserve the tooth. Due to his training as a specialist, Dr. Bui can determine with great accuracy whether or not you truly needed a root canal, and if so, he can perform your treatment gently and efficiently in a single visit.
Dr. Bui explains your root canal treatment in detail.
Dr. Bui is known for his calming and reassuring manner and his ability to put patients at ease. He explains the procedure in detail so you know what is happening and what to expect. Dr. Bui executes root canals in an efficient, gentle manner.
Our patients often comment that they are relaxed and surprised at how easy their treatment was with Dr. Bui, even without anti-anxiety medication. However, if you are anxious, we can provide oral sedation to make your visit as pain-free and relaxing as possible.
During root canal treatment, the tissue inside the canal is removed, after which the empty canal is disinfected. The canal is then filled with a sterile material that seals it and prevents any future infection.
A dental crown is placed on top of the tooth to restore full function. Although the root itself is now dead, the tooth can sitll function as it will be nourished by the tissues surrounding it. Saving a tooth with root canal therapy has the benefit of maintaining the chewing power of the tooth and keeping the adjacent teeth stably in position.

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.
