Dr. Johansen has a private practice in Sandy, Utah. Since graduating in 2000 Dr. Johansen has completed numerous continuing education programs on cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry, CAD/CAM (Cerec) technology, implants, microscope enhanced dentistry, sleep disordered breathing, and orthodontics. He has also participated in advanced occlusion and TMJ disorder courses. By undergoing this training, Dr. Johansen has obtained the clinical skills necessary for treating simple to very complex dental problems.
Dr. Johansen provides dental care in a slow paced, relaxed fashion. Generally only one patient is treated at a time so that his undivided attention can be given. Modern, quality oriented dentistry takes time and a meticulous approach, using the best in dental technology, optics, materials and labs. Dr. Johansen hopes that this practice style will attract patients that appreciate and share his philosophy.
Dr. Johansen and his wife Lindsay have been married since 2004 and they have two sons, Mason and Gage.
