James K. Johnson, DMD
Dentist in Medford, Oregon

As a dentist, I am able to provide a high level of care in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The relationships I've built with my long-standing patients are very strong and each time they come in for a checkup I feel like I have the chance to catch up with an old friend. I have been in practice for over 35 years and have enjoyed every moment of it! All of my staff members have many years of experience in the dental profession and are especially skilled at making patients feel relaxed and comfortable. Working with
a highly trained and caring staff every day is very rewarding and fun. I love dentistry, my patients, and my staff.

Education and Continuing Education
I attended Oregon State University, graduating in 1968 with a Bachelor's degree in Microbiology. I continued on to the University of Oregon Dental School where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1972. After graduation, I worked with the US Public Health Service.

I enjoy being able to offer our patients the latest dental technology in all aspects of dentistry. I continue my education though active memberships in several professional organizations, including the Southern Oregon Dental Society, the American Dental Association, the Southern Oregon Dental Research Group, and the Southern Oregon Implant Study Club. I do all this to ensure my patients always receive the highest quality care possible.

Family Life
I was born in Eugene, OR, and lived in Mapleton, a small logging and lumber town in the coast range of Oregon, until 1973. I had the pleasure of raising my three children in the Rogue Valley and am currently enjoying my three grandchildren who are active in local schools and sports and my newly born grandson. When I have free time I enjoy whitewater rafting, water skiing, boating on Lake Shasta, biking, camping, snow skiing, and fishing for steelhead on the Rogue. I'm also a powerboat captain and enjoy chartering in many different areas.

Great Snacks for Healthy Gums
Having healthy gums takes work. It doesn't just miraculously happen simply because you want it to. The way you take care of your mouth and what you eat have a significant impact on just how healthy, or unhealthy, your gums really are. If you are carefully maintaining your gum health with thorough brushing and flossing, then it is important you eat the right foods to make sure you are doing everything possible to keep your gums really healthy.

Snack Items to Regularly Consume for Healthy Gums

Produce should be your go-to snack if you want to have healthy gums. While it may not always taste as good as the sweet or starchy snacks and treats, it is far better for your body. Fruits are a great alternative if you are looking for a sweet snack, especially if you buy fruits that are in season. Also, don't forget about adding more vegetables into your diet since eating raw leafy greens and celery will help your gums stay healthy.

Ideally, you want to eat your produce with the skin on since the skin contains fiber that is beneficial to your overall health. This skin is what pushes on your gums, stimulating them to hold tight to your teeth. Plus, it scrubs off the tartar on your teeth with each bite you take.

Planning out your snacks ahead of time can help you get the healthiest mouth possible. Taking care of your gums and teeth can also help you keep your body healthier overall. To learn more about taking care of your gums, ask us at your next appointment!
