Dr. Talia Johnson loved her childhood pediatric dentist and was inspired to pursue dentistry in order to help people. She grew up on the East Coast in Kalamazoo and in high school she was Michigan state champion for singles tennis. She continued playing Division 1 tennis at Howard University before attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry and completing her residency at the Advanced Education in General Dentistry at NYU. She always wanted to move to California and chose the Bay Area because of the great people, great weather and so much to do for fun. Dr. Johnson loves running and lifting weight and she’s certified as a personal trainer from National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). Dr. Johnson is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the ADA, the California Dental Association and the National Dental Association. She also mentors pre-dental students in high school and college, and she enjoys volunteering in community health centers performing extractions, exams and oral cancer screenings. When she’s not practicing dentistry or volunteering in the community, Dr. Johnson loves spending time with friends and family and travelling, as well as watching college football and Netflix. Dr. Johnson cares for her patients by listening to their goals and concerns, involving them in the process and teaching them while creating a healthy and beautiful smile. She treats her patients as she would her dearest friend or family member, caring deeply for them and helping them reach their oral health and smile goals. She completely understands dental phobia and cares for each patient compassionately with this in mind.
