How long have you been with Dr. Jeremy Johnson, DDS?

With Jeremy? Since he was born- he’s my brother!

With Dr. Johnson?  Since October 2016

Why do you do what you do?

Many industries have a stigma attached to them, and dentistry is no exception. I love having the opportunity to change people’s perceptions. When a patient comes to our office, they have a totally unique, enjoyable, and unexpected experience. And our online patient reviews are a testament to that.

What do you love about your work?

I love our team. They are fun, competent, and passionate. We have a blast working together. And yes, practical jokes are involved. I also love the satisfaction of knowing our patients are receiving dental care that is second to none, in a relaxing and comfortable environment.

What do you do with your time off?

That’s none of your business, and I’ll thank you to stay out of my personal affairs. Just kidding! I love golfing, reading, traveling, watching movies, road trips with my wife, and hanging out and playing games with my kids (X4). I like spending time in California in the winter, and then in the summer, I like to spend time in California.

 

Breanna – Scheduling Coordinator

How long have you been with Dr. Jeremy Johnson DDS?

Since June 2017.

Why do you do what you do?

People sometimes feel anxious about visiting the dentist. Experiencing the “here and now” with every patient to create a safe space for them is a big motivator for me.

What do you love about your work?

I just love people. I’m the first person most patients see when they come through the door, which means I have the honor–and responsibility–of setting the tone for their entire visit. Being able to chat with them–even for just a few minutes–means I can learn a little bit about their story and help them forget any stress they had when they walked in.

What do you do with your time off?

I love spending time with my husband, Jordan, and our miniature schnauzers, Pepper and Ozzie. We love to spend time in Chelan, but when we’re home, we enjoy working in our garden and beekeeping (we have two hives, with queens named Beyoncé–obviously–and Big Booty Judy). I enjoy a good long walk on the beach and a game of cribbage. It’s also important I never miss an episode of Jeopardy.

Patricia – Registered Dental Hygienist

Education

Lake Washington Technical Center: Associates of Science in Dental Hygiene, registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

How long have you been with Dr. Jeremy Johnson DDS?

Since November 2015.

Why do you do what you do?

I chose to become a dental hygienist because I wanted to help people and because I grew up having problems with my own teeth. I wanted to help educate people so that they can have healthy teeth for a lifetime.

What do you love about your work?

I love helping people to achieve healthy gums and teeth… which helps them to be healthier overall! I also love having the opportunity to get to know my patients and their families.

What do you do with your time off?

When I’m not at work, I like to hike, camp (well, maybe more like “glam”), go boating, read, and spend time with my family and friends.

 

Emily – Registered Dental Hygienist

Education

AAAS, Shoreline Community College

How long have you been with Dr. Jeremy Johnson DDS?

Since September 2013.

Why do you do what you do?

I spent a lot of time as a child in the dental chair because my parents and I were not well educated in dental hygiene. I am very passionate about educating my patients on how to take care of their overall health so they can have a better experience.

What do you love about your work?

Seeing my patients improve their oral health after I have educated them is very rewarding. I also love getting to know my patients and their families on a personal level.

What do you do with your time off?

I love spending time with my husband, my three daughters, and two golden retrievers. When we are not all running around doing sports, we like to be outside and spend time with friends and family.

 

Ashley – Registered Dental Assistant

Education

Dental Assistant Training Center: Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)

How long have you been with Dr. Jeremy Johnson DDS?

Since September 2015.

Why do you do what you do?

I love how beautiful and unique each patient’s smile is. More than anything, I enjoy helping patients feel confident and love their own smiles!

What do you love about your work?

Getting to know each patient I meet – whether we laugh, console, or reminisce! It is a joy to meet new people and to hear stories about their lives… and to hear singing all around the office!

What do you do with your time off?

On my time off, I love taking my daughter on walks or drives all around this beautiful state. I love being with my friends and family, reading, being outdoors, and spur-of-the-moment road trips!
