Dr. Johnson, or as many patients and staff call “Dr. J”, was born and raised in Lubbock. He grew up with his dog George and they had many adventures. It seems kids these days aren’t allowed that kind of freedom anymore, unfortunately. He graduated Coronado high in 1985. At Coronado, he was involved in Track and Soccer.
He attended ACU and entered University of Texas Health Science Center school of Dentistry in 1989. He met his future wife, Charly, during his second semester. She was attending The University of the Incarnate Word.They were married in May of his junior year. Charly worked hard as an account representative for Kelly services while Dr. J finished school. They moved to Lubbock in June, 1993. They were blessed with a daughter, CayteLynn, in September of 1993. She went to the same schools her dad attended and graduated from Coronado in 2012. She attends The University of Alabama- Roll Tide!!!!!!
Dr. Johnson started practice with his father. The building at 4501-50th was built in the 1960′s in the middle of a cotton field. It is still a great location today. A few years later, Dr J bought the practice of Dr. Carl Brown. He moved this practice back to the 50th location which proved wise as the building Dr. Brown practiced in was leveled and converted to a parking lot. Dr. J completed a preceptorship in Implant Dentistry at UTHSCSA and an Oral Surgical internship with Dr Truitt Maddox of ELPaso in the early 90′s. He completed Orthodontic training in Houston under Dr. Brock Rondeau in the late 1990′s. He continues to learn his craft in order to give his patients the highest quality of care.
Dr. Johnson is on the clinical teaching staff at TTUHSC, and practices Hospital Dentistry at UMC. He is able take patients to the hospital for surgery if need be.
He has supported many local charities, and Charly has or is chairing several charitable and civic organizations. Dr.J especially likes the Ronald McDonald House.
Dr J. builds extreme performance street cars in his spare time as well as plays golf.
