Patient Administration

Erica Johnston

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.

Lisa – Patient Administration Lead

Lisa has been in the dental field since 2013, starting out as a dental assistant and is now our Patient Administration Lead, keeping our office running smoothy and patients smiling. She will be one of the first to greet you by name when you walk through the door. She is a Grants Pass native, having graduated from Hidden Valley High School and the Rogue Community College Dental Assisting program. Her favorite part of working at Johnston Dental Care is interacting with our amazing patients and the family atmosphere here. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. They especially love watching and going to Ducks Games.

Jodi – Billing Coordinator

Jodi has been in the dental field since 2010. She enjoys helping people get the most from their insurance and helping them find financial resources to complete treatment. She has lived in the Rogue Valley her whole life and enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, son and dogs. She enjoys camping, crafting, hiking, gardening, floating the Rogue and going on the jet boats. Another favorite is hosting gatherings at her home and spending time with family and friends. Jodi shares, “I love to decorate and share the joy of each holiday, season change, and birthday with all those around me”.

Cindy – Insurance Coordinator

Cindy and her husband recently moved to the Grants Pass area from Atlanta, GA where she has lived all her life as a southern belle. Married for 33 years they have a beautiful daughter, an adorable dog, and now cows. She has worked in dentistry for the last 5 years and is thrilled to be part of the Johnston Dental Care team. She loves the interaction with the patients knowing they are receiving excellent dental care and how it can changes their outlook on life. When she is not at work, she loves the outdoors and country living, exploring with her husband the beauty that Oregon has to offer.

Kelli – Scheduling Coordinator

Carey – New Patient Coordinator

Carey moved to GP in Spring of 2008 when her husband was hired with Asante as an ENT. She is a mother of 4 children, 1 serving a church mission and 3 at home attending GPHS and NMS. Carey was born and raised in Arizona but has loved the Oregon GREEN and exploring, hiking, rafting and camping while living here. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education but has chosen to work for her favorite dentist instead! Carey was a patient first and was always a nervous one but found comfort in coming to Johnston Dental Care for the past 12 years and has highly recommended this office to scaredy cats like herself! Carey loves traveling, painting, reading, volunteering and spending time with her family.
