carlDr. Carl Johnson

Dr. Johnson was influenced to enter dentistry by observing close family members who were dentists.  “There enthusiasm for their profession and willingness to help people had a great impact on my early life.  My cousin and I worked together in the same undergraduate lab.  He had the same memories of his father and uncle being dentists.  As we discussed their lives we decided we wanted to follow in their footsteps” This path lead to the University Of Nebraska Dental School.  He graduated with honors and continued with his education and completed his Oral and Maxillofacial training at Sinai Hospital of Detroit (his cousin is now an orthodontist in the San Diego area.)  Dr. Johnson is past president of the Washington State Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and is board certified by the American Dental Society of Anesthesiologists.

Dr. Johnson has practiced in the Renton/Bellevue area since 1991.  Dr. Johnson lives with his wife Rebecca in the Lake Tapps area where they raised five children.   “When at home we now concentrate on our larger family of kids and grandchildren.  Our lives are kept very busy with our family interactions and serving in our church.”    Dr. Johnson says that “being able to be an oral surgeon has been a very gratifying career.  I have a passion for oral surgery, particularly implant dentistry.”

He enjoys working with Dr. Dahm and in his community and his life has been enriched with his associations with his colleagues in the community.
