Dr. Matt Johnston
Dr. Johnston graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science. While attending BYU, he had the opportunity to work as a researcher for Clinical Research Associates (CRA), a non-profit organization dedicated to testing and examining the most current dental products and techniques. This opportunity shaped Dr. Johnston’s value of research driven products and clinically proven technique to dentistry.
He graduated from The Temple University School of Dentistry in 2005 with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree. He received multiple academic and clinical awards and was inducted into the Stomatognathic Honor Society, the dental honor society of Temple University, and the Oral Surgery Honor Society.
During his junior and senior year at Temple University, Dr. Johnston enjoyed dental mission trips to Romania, Haiti and Eastern Pennsylvania. Dr. Johnston has continued to enjoy dental outreach opportunities through volunteering at local elementary schools educating children about dental hygiene and serving as an affiliated dental provider for the Mobile Dental Unit and Service Dental Day, giving care to the needy and homeless in the local area.
Dr. Johnston has enjoyed leadership opportunities beginning in his undergraduate education as vice president of the Pre-dental club at BYU. He continued to serve as a leader in Dental school as the treasurer and vice president of his dental class working as liaison between faculty and students. After graduation, he has served as secretary, Vice President and President of the Rogue Valley Dental Association and as a Delegate for the Oregon Dental Association.
After earning his DMD degree, Dr. Johnston was offered an opportunity to work at Siskiyou Community Health Center in Grants Pass, Oregon. This opportunity allowed him to use his ability to speak Spanish fluently and show compassion to those in need. However, his inability to provide comprehensive care due to coverage limitations became frustrating. For this reason, Dr Johnston began private practice in 2007. He enjoys the challenge and diversity of general dentistry and whether he’s working on a simple filling or a complex full mouth restoration, he approaches each procedure with the same degree of care and attention to detail. Dr. Johnston’s patients consistently comment on his empathy and ability to listen. He also has a gift for treating children.
In 2012 he participated in the Misch International Implant Institute and trained to surgically place implants. Upon completion he was accepted as a fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologist. He will also soon receive a fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry of which he is a career long member.
Dr. Johnston was raised in the Utah Valley and has always enjoyed life in the great outdoors. He and his wife, Erica are dedicated and busy parents to 4 boys and 2 girls. In his spare time Dr. Johnston volunteers in his church and local scout group and enjoys swimming, biking, running, playing guitar and reading.
