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!
Periodontal treatment is the careful cleaning of the teeth and gums to control the bacteria that causes gum disease. Plenty of bacteria live naturally in the mouth, but poor oral health care and avoiding the dentist can lead to infection and discomfort that eventually develops into periodontitis. There are many ways to take care of your teeth and gums to avoid irritation, bleeding, and lost teeth. At Premier Smile Center, we specialize in the treatment of gum tissue and have a dedicated periodontist on our team.
Gum disease is a slow-growing problem, but if it isn’t caught and addressed early, it can develop into a serious oral health condition that threatens both the appearance and function of your smile. No matter what stage gum disease is diagnosed in, it must be treated aggressively to stop the problem from spreading.
LANAP laser dentistry is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease:
Seeing your Fort Lauderdale general dentist every six months for professional dental cleanings and exams will help keep your teeth free from gum disease. When your dentist sees your teeth on a regular basis, reviews x-rays, and examines your entire mouth, any signs of gingivitis – the earliest stage of gum disease – will be noticed and immediately addressed.
Should mild gingivitis be present, the most typical course of action at this early stage is to recommend an antimicrobial rinse that attacks germs and bacteria to minimize the formation of plaque and reduce inflammation.
Regular cleanings ensure that your teeth and gumline are scraped free of the build-up of plaque and bacteria that are responsible for gum disease. No matter how well you brush and floss at home, there is no substitute for the professional tools of your dentist and hygienist. They can truly eliminate the unwanted on your teeth and ensure that any suspicious areas are treated quickly to prevent the spread of disease or decay.
Dental scaling and root planing are a deep cleaning method for soft tissue management that also promotes the reattachment of healthy gums to the teeth.
While deep scaling is incredibly effective, it only remains effective after treatment is complete if the patient follows the dentist’s instructions for at-home preventive care to allow for proper healing.
Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss among adults. Close to half of American adults have mild, moderate, or severe periodontal disease. As people age, their risk of developing gum disease increases.
Remember, though, that all gum disease starts small. When you make preventive care a priority, early symptoms of gum disease are recognized quickly before any problems can take hold. Know too that all gum disease is treatable – but if you don’t see your dentist, the issue will never go away on its own.
Make your teeth and gums a priority so you will have excellent oral health and a foundation upon which to build. Only clean and strong gums and teeth are good candidates for cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers.

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.
