Meet Dr. Johnson

Dr. Johnson was born in Utah and lived in seven different states before moving to Colorado in 1978. He grew up hiking and fishing all over Colorado, Wyoming and parts of Utah and Idaho. He served a mission for his church in Chile for two years, where he became fluent in Spanish and learned a lot of life lessons. He earned his bachelors degree in Zoology at Brigham Young University while working as a home-care and hospice nurse. He attended dental school at the University of Colorado at Denver and graduated in 2001. He then attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA for his periodontal residency which he completed in 2004. Immediately following graduation, he moved to Fort Collins, CO to begin working at Associated in Periodontics. He had so many patients traveling down from Cheyenne that he quickly went to work to acquire a license in Wyoming in 2005 and has been commuting to Cheyenne at least 1 day a week since then.

He and his wife, Valerie met on a blind date in college and were married in 1995. They have 3 girls, Rachel, Erin & Calista and 1 boy, Nathan that keep them both busy with all of their activities. The whole family enjoys living in the West and escape the city life whenever possible. Dr. Johnson also enjoys watching and playing sports, fishing, hunting, hiking and reading.

Dr. Johnson is a member of the Larimer County Dental Society, the Colorado Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Rocky Mountain Society of Periodontology, and the American Academy of Periodontology.
