Good: All the staff was great to work with. The doctor explains everything in layman’s terms, answers all questions, and makes good recommendations to benefit my health and teeth. The emphasis was on my well being. Dental work was excellent. The Bad: Very pricey for a cash payer like me, but they do give away chocolate chip cookies and drinks. Also, Netflix was shown while waiting. And the Ugly: Such a good experience, it makes me want to come back soon. Hmmm, wanting to go back for a dentist appointment. Did I really have that much fun?

All the office staff are friendly, professional and very pleasant to interact with. I have been with both Beth and Jen and they’re excellent!!! They know how to make you feel at ease throughout the whole procedure. I referred my friend and her family as well and they are beyond pleased with Dr. Johnson and the whole team. I will definitely recommend them to my friends.

Its the people that make this office such a great place to go to for your dental needs. Sure they have all the latest Tech, Digital x-rays, 3D scanner instead of that gooey dental impression stuff and can even make and set your crown all on one visit. I love watching the little milling machine make the crown! But it really comes down to the people in the office, all are kind, caring, customer focused and try to find solutions that will work for you. They were amazing with my 97 year old father. I can’t say enough good things about Dr Johnson and his staff and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone young or old.

Dr. Johnson and his staff are simply the best. Over the four plus years we’ve been with their practice, we have developed real friendships with the staff and feel right at home when we’re in their office. They are kind, thorough, and go out of their way to make each and every experience a positive one. I would recommend them to anyone.

Gary Johnson and associates are by far the best dental place I’ve been to. Up front, honest and very compassionate. I’ve had almost all hygienists that work there, and every one provides amazing service. I feel great after leaving there facility everytime. Thanks again for your practice. I’m not a huge dentist fan, and you guys make it fun!

I was referred to Dr. Johnson about a year ago.  From day one he has been nothing short of top notch, professional, concerning, caring, easy going, and trusting!!  A true top dentist in his field, in my opinion.  I’ve been there for old ‘silver’ fillings removal, cleanings and just had a crown put on one tooth.  Not to mention that Dr. Johnson knew how important it was to me to remove the old ‘silver’ fillings, he went above and beyond with cleaning up work that wasn’t done properly by another local dentist, I wasn’t charged for the extra work.  In my book, that’s a great person!  I also need to mention that his entire staff is right on board with him, all professional and wonderful and helpful.  I highly recommend his office for any type of procedures that they perform there.  My crown was all done in 1 1/2 hrs, no temporary, they have a special machine which mills out the crown while you are at your appointment.

Steve C. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve brought my two young children to Dr. Johnson and was thoroughly impressed with how comfortable he made them feel. The time came for me to have some older dental work redone and I must say it was the most pleasant dental experience I’ve had in my 36 years. Gentle, pain-free and the work looks great! The entire staff is friendly, and my hygienist Courtney is amazing.

Dr. Johnson and the staff are amazing. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable after having a bad experience in the past with another dentist. Katie was truly the best and went above and beyond to help me. If you’re anxious or scared of the dentist like I am, you definitely want to give them a call. You will not regret it!

I had a great experience as a patient at Dr. Gary Johnson DDS. The front office staff is very friendly and helpful making sure that I had the paperwork I needed in advance to update my file. The hygienist took my temperature, prior to entering the office. She went the extra mile by taking my blood pressure and asked me specific questions about my health. Dr. Johnson and the dental hygienist talked with me about a plan for future dental care. I do know that Dr. Johnson’s office offers whitening services, cosmetic dentistry and more. I highly recommend their services.

Ray M. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Johnson and his entire staff is very professional and extremely nice. anyone who is looking for a brilliant dentist and a very loyal and professional staff should go to Dr. Johnson’s office. I have been using Dr. Johnson since I moved to chico about 1 and 1/2 years ago and I am very impressed. In my 64 years and tons of dentist He is by far the best. So go see a professional Dentist and staff for all your Dental needs.,

Connie C. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


\I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson for the past few years, ever since my prior dentist retired.  I couldn’t be happier with the staff or my treatments.  I have had several cleanings and his hygienists are incredible.  I had a crown put on earlier this year…..what a painless, excellent experience compared to ones other dentists have done.  I couldn’t even tell I had it the next day!   And during this time of Covid concerns, they practice incredible hygiene and care.  I truly recommend him and his office staff.

Dr. Johnson has a very nice office. Even fresh baked cookies and coffee in waiting area. The staff is very friendly and I never have to wait. The hygienist is excellent and my teeth have improved since seeing her. Bottom line is what we seek in dentistry. Friendly, on time, latest innovations, good care with results.

Kirsten L. from Oroville, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist in the area. Doctor Johnson is knowledgeable and explains each procedure beforehand. I truly feel that he does what’s best for his patients and would never recommend any unnecessary procedures as I’ve experienced at other dentists. He also takes the time to make sure patients are comfortable. The hygienists and office staff are equally amazing. Billing is quick and have never had any issues. I’ve recommended to several coworkers and all have had good experiences.

Amazing experience! Jen was super friendly, talkative, and gave the best teeth cleaning I’ve experienced, hands down. Dr. Johnson came in after and assessed my teeth as well and made you feel comfortable and right at home. Cookie and gift bag to boot! Thanks, team- super glad to have found an awesome dentist in Chico!

Pamela M. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Johnson’s office is the best place to go for all dental needs.  The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful.  It’s a warm environment with coffee, drinks and freshly baked cookies.   After being out of braces for 30 years, I had a few teeth out of alignment.  Dr. Johnson ordered me clear retainers and within 3 months, I have straight teeth again. And I especially love my dental hygienist Courtney.  She is hilarious and will always make you laugh.   You will love going to the dentist and visiting the fun and kind staff at Dr. Johnson’s.

Great office staff. I felt really comfortable at my first visit. Dr was great at making me feel comfortable while explaining my treatment plan. This is the first dentist I have been to that has given me the whole scope of information regarding how to get my smile to where it should be. I’m extremely lucky to have found the dental office.

It was a very good experience, as usual. Danielle is my hygienist and she is perfect. She did a great job. I enjoy her personality. I am very happy with everyone who works there. They are all a “top notch” team. I really dislike going to the dentist but they make it comfortable and bearable for me. Thank you for all of you!

Dr. Johnson always does an amazing job with me. I had my wisdom teeth removed and everyone was very accommodating and helpful. Jenine is awesome, he really has a great staff and the procedure went very smoothly. The staff really tries to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Thanks Dr. Johnson.

Having a major fear of dentists and all things dentistry I chose this office after reading a lot of reviews. I knew I would need some work due to the (extreme) neglect which made my fears even more intense. Now, after two root canals, three cavities filled, and one cleaning, I am confident I made the right choice. The front desk was professional, compassionate, and understanding in spite of all my issues. They made sure I had all the comfort, encouragement, and assistance I needed which went a long way to ease my fears. Dr. Johnson was kind, my dental work itself turned out great, and the hygienist was spectacular. I am so grateful that this experience has helped me get into a normal and healthy routine of dental care. Plus they have snacks & drinks in the waiting room which was a bonus! Highly recommended.

I’ve recently gone to several Dentists and Oral Surgeons for a diagnosis regarding pain in a molar, which turned out to be a fractured tooth with an infection. I have been concerned by the poor clean technique that was shown, in the era of COVID-19. I was an ICU RN for many years. Two Oral Surgeons had some staff without masks and one had a wooden basket that supplies were kept in. It was apparently, never cleaned. You can’t clean a woven wooden basket, properly, on a patient by patient basis.They took supplies from it repeatedly, thus contaminating their hands & everything they touched afterwards, & handed it off to another staff member with another patient. Clean technique helps prevent other infections like Hepatitis and Herpes, as well as Syphilis, etc. This is serious stuff. By far, Dr. Johnson and his staff were the best. I had no complaints about their techniques. Dr. Johnson was very kind and sensitive to pain. When I had excruciating pain a couple months ago, he helped me tremendously, with a knowledgeable combination of medications, without the need for narcotic pain medication.

Brian M. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


In the past I have always hated going to the dentist. Although, ever since I started going to Dr. Gary Johnson it has been a positive experience, and my teeth have never looked better. I recently fractured a tooth from an old root canal, which was the most pain that I have ever experienced. Dr. Johnson was able to fit me in quickly and extract the tooth. Dr. Johnson is the only person in the world that can make a tooth extraction a pleasant experience. He also contacted me the next day to make sure I was doing okay. He and his staff is the best dental office in the world. They are amazing!

Dr. Johnson, DDS found my cracked, 14+ yr. old crown provided by an other dentist. He removed it effortlessly, at least to me. I felt no pain whatsoever. His medical assistant, Tianna, worked closely with him making my visit actually enjoyable, as I appreciated their experienced techniques so quietly executed together. They even fixed an adjacent tooth that had been bothering me for quite some time, and they charged very little for this. All work was finalized in less than 2 hours; no need for a 2nd visit. Lastly, Shelly at the front desk made my payment process quick and easy and always with a bright smile. Hard to believe, but I actually look forward to my Dentist visits!

I called this wonderful office and the lady who answered was so kind. I was in a lot of pain, and scared. She was able to get me in just two hours later. The dentist himself was very nice. His hygentist was professional, and made me feel at ease. Absolutely recommend this place. I never will forget their kindness. Front desk ladies were phenomenal.

Beautiful, clean and friendly dental practice. They were very accommodating with working me into their schedule last minute. Hygienist Jen was fantastic! Thorough with her exam and cleaning, and also focused on my having a comfortable experience. Dr. Johnson has a light & fun personality along with a confidence-instilling bedside manner. Overall great experience. Thank you so much for providing an exceptional dental experience. I will definitely be recommending their office to others!

Dr. Johnson recently performed cosmetic dental work for my daughter . The end product was beautiful and was also the most conservative, least expensive approach. The dental work immediately transformed her into a smiling young woman. He took extra time to help her make the best decision for her.  He made his recommendation to us based on what he would do if my daughter was his own daughter. It becomes immediately clear upon meeting him (and his competent staff) that these are people you can trust in completely. Choosing the right dentist is extremely important. Without hesitation I highly recommend Dr. Gary Johnson. I work in a profession that knows how valuable it is to get expert care and what can happen if you don’t, so I do not give out recommendations lightly.

Katie L. from Willows, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Johnsons office is one of a kind! Coming to Dr Johnson’s is a breeze from the staff to the amazing chocolate chip cookies on your way out! I had to have a filling done for the first time just recently and Dr Johnson and his assistant were very kind and walked me through the whole process! I was very thankful for that. Courtney does an amazing job on my cleanings as well chatting throughout the appointment making me feel very comfortable. I would recommend this office to anyone I know!

Katie B. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Walker is simply amazing!  He makes your dental work look like your teeth are natural. No one can tell that I have veneers! He has 3 incredible hygienist, who know more about the health of your mouth than any other dentist I have gone to in the past.  I feel like I walk into my own house when I go there.  Fresh baked cookies, and coffee or juice!  It is so relaxing and comfortable!  Who would ever think that I would look forward to going to see my dentist?  I love everyone there!

John C. from Paradise, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to begin my review by acknowledging that I’ve only been seen twice at Dr. Johnson’s office. But wow, I am impressed! I had a crown and a couple of fIllings done this morning, and it was a fantastic experience! He took the time to and answer all of my questions in a way that I could in understand. I haven’t needed any Ibuprofen or anything else. Every staff member I have encountered has been polite, professional, and welcoming. A couple of weeks ago I had an intake and cleaning, and I could not be happier with my experiences! I would DEFINITELY recommend this office to anyone! In fact, I am actually looking forward to my next appointment!

Hands down the best experience I have ever had at the dentist. I felt I was in very good hands and everyone was so friendly and nice! Beth made sure I felt comfortable and at ease took time to thoroughly explain everything to me that she was doing and made sure I understood. She took patient care to the next level and gave me tips and tools on how I could take even better care of my teeth. She went above and beyond and I really appreciated it.

Dr. Johnson is great. Very kind and he did a great job on the work I had done there. Great staff. The hygienists are knowledgeable, informative and respectful of my choices in what to do with my teeth. I feel like they really have my best interest in mind. The receptionists are sweet and helpful as well. Thanks for all the swag!

Will F. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve not had any work done here yet, but after my first appointment here I just had to leave a review. Everyone here is super nice and accommodating. They have a genuine care for their people and it seems they just exude joy as they go about their work. Really refreshing! Will update once I’ve had actual work done, but I’ve got confidence they’ll be great at that too!

Jeff L. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


Five stars all the way. This office is the jam. I’ve been coming here for seven years and I’ve had nothing but great experiences. The staff is knowledgeable, welcoming, and friendly. They all take the time to get to know you and give you personalized care. They even work hard to make appointments work with your schedule and they’ll call you if a spot opens up. Katie’s always trying to get me to eat their fresh baked cookies and drink fresh coffee right after my cleanings, which I suspect might be a devious ploy to make me need more cleanings, but I’m not mad about it. Folks, if you’re looking for a dentist in Chico, this is the place to go.

Dr. Johnson has real integrity. My bite guard was not fitting properly. I fully expected to be spending $400 to $500 for a new one. Dr. Johnson thought it could be repaired, so he tried a few places before finding one that could. My repaired guard fits and works perfectly. Dr. Johnson went the extra mile – saving me money and probably costing himself some. The staff are friendly and professional. A great first experience.

I feel very lucky that Gary Johnson’s office was recommended to me a few years back. They were able to work me in when I had an emergency, I have been a patient ever since. I have had check ups, teeth cleaning, fillings, extraction and a root canal, I have yet to have a bad experience. All the staff is very friendly and I have never had a wait that felt excessive, usually less then 10 minutes. If you are like me and dont like the dentist, Gary Johnson’s is the place to go. Did I mention the staff is great!!

Tracy Doman (Source: Google)


I haven’t lived in Chico for 15 years, but I keep coming back to this staff because they are the best! They are the friendliest, most professional, honest crew and I always have the best experience with the work I need done. They give me the brightest, best smile. During these crazy times the office was pristine and I didn’t wait a minute wondering. I felt safe and attended to.
