James K. Johnson, DMD
Dentist in Medford, Oregon
drjohnson@drjameskjohnson.com

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.

Use These Tips to Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist
If you have a fear of the dentist, a routine cleaning can become a major source of stress and anxiety. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways that you can work to overcome your dental fears.

Talk to Your Dentist
If you are fearful about your dental procedure, tell us during your appointment. This will help us decide the best approach for your appointment, and you'll feel more in control of your exam when everyone is on the same page.

Learn about the Procedure
Knowledge is power, so knowing exactly what will happen during your dental procedure can leave you feeling more comfortable. It is your right to understand the work that is going to be done on your teeth.

Ask about Sedation Dentistry
Many dentists recommend the use of laughing gas and other sedation methods for nervous patients. Contact us about potential options that could help you feel more comfortable about your appointment.

Work on Your Breathing
Practicing yoga and meditation outside of the dental office can assist you with your dental appointments. Breathing techniques can help you to relax when you are sitting in the dental chair.

Prioritize Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is a helpful way to prevent major dental problems that may involve more time spent in a dental chair. The more often that you go in for regular cleanings, the less likely it is that you will experience a greater dental problem that requires extensive treatment.

If you are living with dental anxiety, contact our office today for more tips on how to deal with your fears.
