Best Dentist in Fargo, hands down. Dr. Johnson is great at what he does and gets to know his patients. The staff and Hygienists are wonderful and helpful with anything you need.

I LOVE Saving Smiles Dentistry!!! The staff is extremely inviting, friendly, and accommodating. The appointments are quick, easy, and (relatively) painless. Dr. Johnson and his staff really care about their patients, and I would recommend Saving Smiles to anyone!!

Dr. Johnson and his staff are friendly, professional and caring. They squeezed me in when I had a broken tooth. My new treatment plan and my options, including financial, were clearly articulated to me by Kelly and Dr. Johnson.

I love saving smiles for my family dentistry. My husband and I have had some bad dental experiences in the past, and we both fell in love with saving smiles 3 years ago when we decided to give another dentist a try. Since falling in love with a place I can trust, I have gone forward with taking better care of my teeth, more frequent cleanings, to braces for myself at age 34! To getting an implant, to getting a crown done. I trust saving smiles for it all AND I love how they communicate the cost with me right up front!.

I love Carrie, the dental hygienist - she makes the entire experience worth it for me. She treats me just like a patient who is coming in to have my teeth cleaned but she is genuine, kind, and sees me as a person understanding that what's going on in my life just as much affects my ability to care for my teeth as my physical and emotional health do! I love this place because of her!

I had my first appointment at Saving Smiles today and was very pleased with my experience! Dr. Johnson fixed my retainer and Kelly assisted him. They were very friendly and professional. The receptionists at the front desk were welcoming and helpful. I will definitely be back for future visits!

I am a terrible dental patient. Over the last 50 years of dentistry I have had several extremely painful experiences. The care and thoughtfulness of the staff has helped me get over past problems. Dr. Johnson is very professional and understanding of my past bad experiences elsewhere. At this point in my life Dr. Johnson and his wonderful staff, is the only dentist I want to go to.

I have been coming to this office for 5 years and really love the staff and dentist- when he retired and Dr Johnson took over I was hoping it would still be the best dental office and staff I have ever had and I am happy to say that it is still the best dentist and staff I have ever been too! Everything gets explained, as well as the cost before, as I don't have dental insurance. The work done by the dentist and staff is reasonablely priced for those without insurance and they have a discount plan as well to help even more. I am always comfortable and pain free and the quality of the work is excellent! I highly recommend this dentist and his staff!

Dr. Johnson and team do a great job with little kids! My son had to get a cavity filled which is never any fun. The staff at Saving Smiles explained the whole process to him, let him see the tools, and were exceptionally patient getting him comfortable with what was going to happen. They did the best job possible with a not-so-fun situation.

This was my first visit to Saving Smiles. Everyone was really friendly & helpful. They made my dental visit as comfortable as could be. They listened to what I was saying & asked questions to clarify something then explained what they could do. Even when I needed an Oral Surgeon they recommended one & called & made the appointment for me. I will continue to come here.

I was with Dr.Colbert, a close family friend my whole life... When Dr.Johnson and his staff came in I was hesitant. But I couldn’t have asked for better people! Every single person is so friendly and helpful! Gwen*(sp?) was so helpful and calmed me down greatly! I have anxiety and she probably could tell I was getting anxious while I was checking my heart rate randomly. But she was awesome and I can’t thank her enough for everything!Dr. Johnson worked quick and was so gentle during the procedure.Thank you everyone! I can’t wait to go back and keep working to get my perfect smile back!

Great first visit at Dr. Johnson's office. I have been to a few different dental offices in the FM area and I haven't met anyone that made me feel as comfortable and that his priority was truly to provide the best dental care at an affordable cost to his patients. His office staff is friendly and approachable too with questions that I had. I'm so glad that he is our family dentist now!I highly recommend Dr. Johnson to my family and friends!!!

I was having major pain over the weekend and needed to get in yesterday ASAP. I called a few places and some were booked, some didn't take my insurance, and one didn't take new patients. I have heard nothing but good but Dr. Johnson so I went on google and got the number to call. I called over and the lady was very helpful got me in, asked if I had any questions, etc. I knew from the start that it was going to be a good choice that I had made to go see Dr. Johnson. Everyone was so friendly at the receptionist desk, Kelly who did my x-rays and was with me in the back room was amazing. Dr. Johnson came in, said what needed to be done so I'm taking care of that today and then will be seeing after for my check up that I have next week. After all the years of going to the dentist this was the best experience even though it was only one day, I'm going to start going here from now on.

I have been going to Saving Smiles for a few years now and it is always a great experience. They will greet you by name the second you walk in the door and even after month of not seeing them they still know what is going on in your life. they are very quick and do a great job on any procedure. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Great Front Office service, excellent hygienist and Dr. Johnson's honest approach to dentistry. They are super helpful and excellent with young children. They don't try to "up sell" you with unnecessary work. Superb all around.

I've been going to Saving Smiles Dentistry for a little over 2 years now. They have always show the utmost care to me as a patient and a person. Dr. Johnson helped me by getting ready for my wedding and setting me up with a pair of bleaching trays. He also took the most time and care setting my crown and making sure everything fit and looked great. His staff over and over again has made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am confident recommending Dr. Johnson and his team to everyone!

I absolutely recommend Saving Smiles Dentistry. The staff is so polite and nice and I'm always greeted with a "good morning Jessi!". Carrie has been my dental hygienist for years and she's fantastic! Dr. Johnson is also wonderful and keeps the office up to speed with new technology which makes the patient experience much better than in the past. Thank you team SSD!

Dr. Johnson has been our family dentist ever since Dr. Ugland retired. From the moment you arrive at Dr. Johnson’s office, you feel as though you are the most important person there. They make sure you’re comfortable and take time to explain what to expect. While the Doctor always seems to get the credit, in this case deservedly so. I feel the supporting staff needs some recognition. Besides being an excellent dentist, he has surrounded himself with some of the best people in the business. Not only is he my dentist, I consider him as a friend.

My name is Joni Minor, not Littlest Pet Shop vids! My daughter got a hold of my phone and changed my name... 😬. Anyway...This place is fantastic. Having moved to Fargo four years ago, I had no idea how I was going to find a quality dentist. Because I didn't have dental insurance at the time, I found Saving Smiles online and saw that they offered a payment plan that worked for me. Not only did they provide me with a payment option I was able to manage, they provided excellent service and care. I brought my daughter here recently for a check-up and after her appointment, she told me she LOVED the dentist, and didn't even mind having to go back to get her cavities filled. Today I asked her if she still loved the dentist after having her fillings, and she said YES! Everyone is so friendly and it was so cute hearing Dr. Johnson (while I was in the waiting room), tell my daughter, "You did a great job!!!" I would recommend Saving Smiles to anyone. Now I have to make an appointment for a cleaning myself!

It's warm and welcoming!

  • 5 star review  Most of us don't "enjoy" going to the dentist. However, Dr. Johnson and his team are extremely professional and take every opportunity to make you feel comfortable at each visit. When you walk in the door, you're greeted with a smile and you're never forced to wait past your scheduled appointment time. My hygienist is sure to explain each of the steps she takes while cleaning my teeth as well as address any concerns I might have with my oral health. Typically, I am in and out the door with a fresh smile within 30 minutes, feeling great about my smile. I recommend anyone looking for a new dental office to give Dr. Johnson a shot!

    thumb Cody Hassler

    5 star review  I'm hate going to the dentist. The people here are so nice and made me feel so comfortable. The dental assistant Kelley was very clear and explained to me everything that was going to happen. She helped me calm down. James gave me multiple options for treatment and explained which would be better and why. I couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks!

I would Definitely recommend Dr. Johnson and his staff to friends and family!

    5 star review  Every time I go in for a cleaning, Dr. Johnson and his friendly, courteous staff go above and beyond their duties. From a welcome "hello" when I walk in the door, to casual conversation to keep me comfortable during the cleaning, everyone in the office obviously loves their job and it shows! I always feel like I can ask any questions I may have and they will do their best to answer. I will never hesitate to refer patients to Dr. Johnson's office!
