Dr Barbara Johnson was born and Poland and moved to the US when she was 13 years old. Her father had to defect to the US before being able to bring the entire family over. This life experience had a profound effect on Dr Johnson and she has never taken for granted the opportunity her father’s dramatic move offered her and her family. She grew up in New York and attended high school and college in New York State before earning her DDS degree from Stony Brook University. Upon graduation see immediately took an associate job with a high profile cosmetic dentist in Manhattan. She was the “rookie” but learned a tremendous amount about esthetic dentistry and the application of dentistry in the treatment of TMJ.
After a few years of practice in New York, she moved to Houston to marry her husband Brian and to build her own cosmetically focused comprehensive dental center similar to the one she worked at in New York. She purchased Dentiq’s legacy practice from Dr Edwin Cordray in 2005. Dr Cordray had a vibrant 25 plus year practice that was in the heart of Houston. Dr Johnson took that practice and grew it 4 fold to what it is today. Dentiq Dentistry. She partnered with Dr Sista who became solo owner in April 2017.
Dr Johnson has and continues to have her focus at Dentiq around cosmetic dentistry, full mouth restorations and TMJ. She practices a more limited roll now then she has in the past, and most of that is due to her strong passions outside of work. Dr Johnson is a elite level cross-fitter and the mother of 3 boys. She works hard at her dentistry to improve her quality time at home and on her fitness.
