What Sets Us Apart?


We understand you have a choice in who you select to care for you and your child’s smile. 

We are continuously voted “Best Orthodontist” by Coastal Delaware magazine.  Our current patients rave about our service and skills.  And Dr. Johnson was honored as one of the top 1% of orthodontists in the nation by the elite Schulman Study Group.  

But what REALLY makes us different is the journey and the experience we offer!  We believe that you deserve more.  You deserve the best!  All orthodontists are not the same – it is the technological and artistic skill of the individual doctor that determines the beautiful smile you desire. 

Some other things to consider:


We Use Cutting Edge Technology

We strive to bring you the latest and greatest in orthodontic techniques and technologies.  Why?  Because we are always searching for ways to make the orthodontic process as effortless and comfortable as possible.  Being on the cutting edge of the industry is important – it ensures that you are getting the best orthodontic treatment possible!

The goal of a high-tech office like ours is three-fold:  to have effective treatment, to have efficient treatment and to make the entire process less invasive.  Here are some of the players in our all-star lineup of equipment:  


iTero Element 3-D Scanner:  This allows us to create a perfect digital scan of your teeth without radiation or messy, goopy impressions!


FormLabs 3-D Printer:  The best part of our 3-D printer is the ability to create perfectly accurate models and clear retainers  – precisely when we need them – right here in our very own office!  


3-D Imaging:  Patient safety is always our top priority!  Our brand new i-CAT FLX Cone Beam 3-D x-ray machine provides us with outstanding full facial and jaw images with a fraction of the radiation of traditional x-rays.  Patients are comfortably seated during the process, which takes only a few seconds.  This top-of-the-line machine provides incredibly accurate and highly defined images, which in turn allows us to develop the the most efficient and effective treatment plan possible.  


We Make Sure You’re Seen on Time!

We appreciate that your time is valuable and we do everything we can to make sure you are always seen on time.  Appointments are thoughtfully scheduled in order that we can run efficiently and on time.  One of the things our patients always seem to comment on is the fact that they never have to wait long to be seen like they do in other medical offices.

We Make Orthodontics Fun!

Going to a medical appointment does not typically rank high on anyone’s fun scale.  That’s why we do our best to make your visits with us pleasant and, yes, even kind of fun!  We take our work seriously, but do it in a friendly, upbeat environment.  We celebrate birthdays and debands, hold patient appreciation events and parties, give away some amazing contest prizes, and have even been known to throw on an ugly sweater or costume on occasion!
