Daniel C. Johnson, D.M.D., a former UGA alumni, is moving back to Athens this summer to join us and grow our practice. Prior to attending dental school, Daniel met Dr. Alex at Mercy Health Center where they volunteered for the community together, and then worked alongside Dr. Alex in his office for a year.
Daniel attended the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta, GA from 2017-2021 where he received his DMD degree. Following four years of dental school, he decided to stay in Augusta an additional year and complete a year of the general practice residency there in Augusta. The GPR specializes in surgical implants and IV sedation for dental procedures. Daniel has had extensive training in both implants and IV sedation, and is excited to bring his skill set to Athens and provide excellent care to his patients.
His wife, Caroline, and their chocolate Labrador Ellie Mae are excited to be joining us in Athens as well. They originally met in Athens back in 2013, so it feels full circle to be able to call this city home again. Outside of dentistry, Daniel enjoys fly fishing in the North Georgia mountains, playing golf, cheering on the dawgs during the fall and the Braves during the spring, or traveling to new cities while spending time with friends & family. He is eager to get to know his patients and hopes they receive the best dental care in his hands.
