About Us

Thank you for taking the time to read about our practice. Dr Andrew Johnson’s practice has devoted, enthusiastic staff who genuinely care about your oral health and dental treatment.

Dr Andrew Johnson our principal dental practitioner, graduated from the University of Sydney in 1985 and within 2 years of general practice was questioning, “Why are we removing perfectly healthy teeth to create space?”. Investigation introduced numerous methods of creating space without removing teeth and as a result Dr Johnson has pursued ways to increase his knowledge on non-extraction techniques. Andrew is a qualified general practitioner who is devoted to improve your facial development, with his focus of treating the “cause of the problem not just the symptoms.”  Whilst always maintaining your general dental oral health.
