Meet Dr. Johnson

Jonathan C. Johnson, DMD, MS

  Compassionate, down-to-earth, and a complete perfectionist, Dr. Johnson

is passionate about creating beautiful smiles and happy patients. 

He strives to deliver technical excellence in a positive, happy environment.

 
The son of a school teacher and a dental hygienist, Dr. Jonathan Johnson has always been interested in the dental field.  He graduated from  Bucknell University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and completed his dental education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. While in dental school, he fell in love with orthodontics and went on to complete an orthodontic residency at Temple University.  There he was appointed Chief Resident in the Department of Orthodontics based on his exceptional clinical and leadership skills.  He also served as an instructor for undergraduate dental students.  
 
Dr. Johnson relocated from Philadelphia and opened Johnson Orthodontics in 2010.  After a visit to  Rehoboth Beach in 2009, he and his wife fell in love with the lower, slower lifestyle Sussex County offered and knew it was the right place to open a practice and raise their family.  
 
 

In 2017, Dr. Johnson was invited to join the prestigious Schulman Study Group, an organization of prominent orthodontists whose practices rank in the top 1% in North America.  Members support and advise each other in their pursuits of the most progressive and innovative treatments.  Membership is limited to 125 practices, is extended exclusively by invitation, and Dr. Johnson is the only orthodontist in Kent and Sussex Counties to be invited into this distinguished group.

A father of three, Dr. Johnson understands how to communicate with patients of all ages and help them feel at ease.  He is highly respected within the community not only for creating beautiful smiles, but also for his generosity and support of local organizations.  In his spare time, Dr. Johnson enjoys playing golf and spending time with his wife Jess, and his three children, Will, Ella and Henry.  He is happy to call Sussex County home and looks forward to meeting with you and your family soon!
