Portrait of Dave Johnson, DDS

About Dave:

Dr. J (not to be confused with the professional basketball player) comes from the rainy but lush environs of Oregon to the desert landscapes of our fair state. He received a dental degree from Brigham Young University before returning to Oregon to earn his DMD Degree from Oregon Health Sciences in 1999. Finally, he completed his pediatric dental specialty training at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, before returning to Utah to set up his practice here.

Dr. J. has four children with his wife, Stacy, and enjoys hiking Utah’s trails and olympic weightlifting, BUT not usually at the same time. He believes that succeeding in anything, whether it’s olympic weightlifting or dental hygiene, requires strong habits and a willingness to keep learning.

That’s why Dr. J teaches in the pediatric dental residency at Primary Children’s Medical Center and has lectured on rare genetic dental cases at several dental schools. Developing lifelong habits at a young age is the key to keeping your kids’ teeth healthy and strong throughout their lives. And Dr. J knows a thing or two about learning good habits.

Parent Feedback

All around amazing! We got into the South Jordan office right away. My son needed a lot of tests. The nurse who took his blood was flawless. He needed X-rays and the guy who helped us (X-ray tech?) was super cheerful and upbeat, which helped my son, who was feeling horrible. Dr. McDowell was super thorough and gave us all the time we needed to figure out what was going on with my kid. I have nothing bad to say. I recommend this place to everyone!
