Jeremy L. Johnson, DDS
Dr. Jeremy Johnson spent the first few years of his life in Massachusetts, until, while he was still at a young age, his family moved overseas. He spent most of his childhood years living in Bangladesh, where his dad was a missionary dentist. Jeremy’s love of travel was born through the family’s visits to many Southeast Asian countries.
After completing high school equivalency in Southern California, he followed his brother to Southwestern Michigan to attend college at Andrews University. In 1997, he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology.
Dr. Johnson continued his education in Southern California at Loma Linda University,
receiving a Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2001. During his last year of dental school, Jeremy’s professors selected him as the recipient of the highly sought-after Academy of General Dentistry Award for his exceptional clinical skills in dentistry.
Dr. Johnson moved to Monroe in July 2003 to assume care of a retiring dentist’s clients. He spends approximately 50 hours per year in continuing education courses that allow him to keep up on current techniques and technologies in dentistry.
His professional affiliations include:
- ACADEMY OF GENERAL DENTISTRY
Dr. Johnson feels his bio is incomplete without introducing you to his best friend, life partner, and master of mayhem, Heather. She’s not only integral in supporting his family at home but also in supporting the practice through marketing integration, motivational support, and emotional uplifting/thrashing, as the situation necessitates.
Dr. Johnson lives in Monroe with Heather, their son, Devan, and a terribly unattractive dog, Kenneth. Heather has three older children, Alexis, Aubrey, and Dakota, the oldest of which provided them with their first grandson in January 2015! Jeremy and Heather enjoy being involved in their church and the extended family that has grown from it. They spend their spare time gardening, watching movies, and entertaining friends.
Kelly Irwin, DMD
As a native of Woodinville, Dr. Kelly Irwin has well established roots in the Monroe area. She completed her undergraduate degree in Cell Biology at the University of Washington. Her journey to become a dentist took her down to Glendale, Arizona where she attended dental school at Midwestern University. There, she received her doctorate in dental medicine and learned many of techniques and technologies Dr. Johnson has implemented in his office. Now, she is excited to be back in the PNW practicing dentistry with the Monroe Smiles Team.
As a dentist, Dr. Irwin is able to connect with patients and looks forward to fostering lifelong relationships with them, by providing gentle and quality care. In her time off, she enjoys snowboarding (mostly at Mission Ridge) and water skiing on Lake Entiat. She is looking forward to continuing these hobbies now that she is back in the great state of Washington. She has learned quickly here at Monroe Smiles, that we are all family!
