Our patients say
“I went to Dr.Johnson with worn out & broken full mouth acrylic prosthetics. They meticulously fitted & installed a new Zirconia set of teeth. Big difference in appearance & confidence. They also schedule appointments separately, no waiting and very discrete. Linda & Donna are very caring and attentive. Excellent experience."
“Dr. Peter Johnson replaced my aging dentures and they are perfect. He is meticulous and made sure the dentures fit just right. Now my bite is improved and these dentures are much more comfortable than the old ones. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson. Thank you to Donna and Linda for your help."
“Dr. Johnson is a true professional. Before choosing who to go to I found out there are only a handful of prosthodontists in San Diego County. I chose the best because Dr. Johnson is very considerate and put in the extra care to make sure I was happy with the outcome. He is truly an expert at all he does. His whole staff is excellent, and his office manager Donna makes you feel comfortable the minute you walk through the door. She goes out of her way to make you feel special. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and his staff for the best service available."
“I don't normally write reviews but I want to publicly recognize Dr. Peter Johnson's knowledge and skill and to share my positive experience with his team. Before I became a patient at SDDIS, I had long-standing problems with my prosthetic teeth. Under Dr. Johnson's care, my problem was solved and I finally feel that I have properly aligned jaws and effective full dental implants. I am completely satisfied with the care I receive from Dr. Johnson and his team!"
“Dr. Johnson is very caring and professional. He immediately made me feel comfortable and really listened to my concerns. One week after using my nighttime bite guard, I already had marked improvement and one month later, the alignment of my bite continues to improve and my pain continues to decrease. I am trying to avoid oral surgery for as long as possible and Dr. Johnson is definitely helping me to do so. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson!"
“I had a great experience at Dr. Johnson's office for sleep apnea. His expertise was impressive and he was thorough and attentive. My sleep apnea problem is now cured - he fitted a device for inside my mouth that pulls my jaw out while I sleep. Amazing! The staff and Donna, the front desk/scheduler, were friendly and more than accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Peter Johnson - he is very professional and truly a nice person. Thumbs up!"
