When Johnston Dental Care first formed in 2007, Erica was an integral part of its conception from writing the human resource manual to keeping the books and payroll to helping create the logo. Matt and Erica worked hand in hand to form Johnston Dental Care – usually with a baby on her hip.
Erica continues to manage much of the business end of Johnston Dental Care, creating effective systems to run smoothly and managing the billing. She is part of the marketing committee and is the creative mind behind many of the No Cavity Club t-shirts. She facilitates employee recognition and team unity opportunities. She also handles the interior design and decoration.
Erica earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature with a minor in business from Utah Valley University and a Master’s degree in bilingual/bicultural studies from LaSalle University. Her favorite hobbies are reading and cheering on her kids from the stands. Her marriage and children are her greatest joy and most fulfilling success. She’s also ridiculously funny.
Hannah – Treatment Planner, Front Desk Lead
Born and raised in Southern Oregon, I graduated from Rogue River High School in 2009. I first started in
pediatric dentistry in 2011, and quickly realized how much I love the field. One of my top priorities is
patient care and helping patients understand how to maximize their insurance benefits and achieve
their health goals. It’s amazing the dramatic impact that transforming a smile can have on an individual
and I love changing people’s perspective on dentistry from a scary, high anxiety experience, to a place of
comfort and trust. It’s my absolute pleasure to serve our incredible patients throughout their journey to
create AND maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. Out of the office, I enjoy spending time with my
husband and two kids enjoying all that our beautiful community has to offer.

Taina was born and raised in Florida and moved to Oregon in October 2021. She has been in the dental field since 2019 and has over 5 years of customer service.

When she’s not setting up appointments, she loves to go to the coast or sit in the sun at the Illinois river with her boyfriend, Justin. Her favorite thing about Oregon is the mountainous views. She is also bilingual and speaks Spanish!
