MEET OUR STAFF

Dr. Keith Johnson, D.D.S.

Dr. Keith Johnson has been working in the dental field for 23 years, the last 20 of which have been at Boulder Creek Dental. Originally from Menlo Park, he worked his way through the University of California Berkley, then later graduated from The University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Fransisco. 

Dr. Johnson had enjoyed trips to Boulder Creek in his youth, and jumped at the opportunity to team up with Carl White, D.D.S. in early 1996. Dr. White originally started Boulder Creek Dental in 1965. Dr. J (as he is known by the locals) eventually took over the practice and continues to enjoy working in the San Lorenzo Valley with the people of Boulder Creek and surrounding areas. 

He takes pride in his skills of the profession, as well as those of his friendly staff members.
