Dr. Alex J. Johnson

Dr. Johnson has been working in the dental field for well over three decades, and he loves being able to help patients achieve healthier and straighter teeth. One of the most fulfilling parts of his work is seeing little ones grow beautiful pearly whites while learning how to love their smiles. He grew a passion for orthodontics back when he was 13 years old and wore braces. By going through the process, he learned to enjoy the art and science of dentistry, and he remains passionate about the profession to this day.

After graduating from the University of South Florida, Dr. Johnson went on to receive his dental degree from Washington University as well as completing his master’s and Orthodontic Certificate from there. He’s undergone multiple advanced courses, such as Airway Orthodontics, through organizations like the Pankey Institute, and he’s even earned his Board Certification in Dental Sleep Medicine. He’s also a proud member of several professional groups, including the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the Florida Dental Association, and the American Association of Orthodontists.

Whenever he isn’t at the office straightening pearly whites, Dr. Johnson is likely spending time with his loving and supportive family. He and his brother even started dental school together, but he went into pediatric dentistry instead. In his spare time, Dr. Johnson enjoys tinkering with computers and learning everything he can about them.

My friend just asked who I would recommend for my braces and looked up Dr. Johnson to see if he is still practicing bc my teeth are still PERFECT. Dr. Johnson was my orthodontist 23 years ago and I have never wore my retainers. I get compliments weekly on how beautiful my teeth are. Thank you Dr!
