Ted Johnson • DDS • FAGD

Hello,

My name is Ted Johnson and I have been practicing dentistry in the St. Croix Valley since 1987. Over that time period one of the more gratifying aspects of my career is interacting with families and watching kids grow. I pride myself on my ability to connect with people of all ages to not only understand what they need but what they want.
I am extremely fortunate to be working alongside warm and caring people who make life easy and fun, not only for me, but our patients.

With advances in dentistry happening at unprecedented levels I try to stay current by attending numerous continuing educational programs and belong to the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association, the True North Chapter of the Seattle Study Club, the Border Towns Study Club, and the Academy of General Dentistry where I received my fellowship award in 2015.

Along with staying up to date with dental advancements, I like to keep connected with the community as a member of the Better Business Bureau, the Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce, and the Mighty Mite Unit of the Osman Shrine.
When I am not at the office I can be found at my home in St. Paul. In my spare time I enjoy biking, boating, photography, music, television and sleeping.

Jordyn • Office Coordinator

I am the newest member to this amazing team. I joined the office in November of 2018 and have loved every second it. I got started in the dental industry in 2011 when I was 19 years old. My mom is a dental assistant and brought me in to help at a Give Kids a Smile event and from then on, I was hooked! I look forward to chit-chatting with everyone that comes in and helping with any scheduling or financial needs. When I am not at work I enjoy trying to find new ways to entertain and spoil my son, Oliver.

Kelly • Office Manager

This office opened its doors on December 8th, 1997. That’s when I started working with Dr. Ted. Time truly does fly when you’re having fun! It’s been great getting to know our patients, and especially fun watching them grow up to be successful adults and start families of their own. I enjoy working with such a great group of people, and feel proud of all the advancements we’ve made to keep our patients healthy. Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband, Al and our sons, Jason, Sam and Jack. We enjoy spending time outdoors and playing with our dog, Chloe.
