Love this dentist office been going here for 15 years now they are so amazing and treat you like family. I had an appointment today wonderful job ladies Dr. Johnson Shirley and Iris. Love the whole staff, can't say enough of how wonderful they are.
"We left our previous dentist, because we constantly felt pressured into extra services. Dr. Johnson and her team do not pressure us at all. Instead, they are very kind and practical. They take excellent care of their patients in a very comfortable environment. My boys (3 and 6) ask to go to the dentist! That speaks for itself :) My family loves Avalon Dentistry."

"I was privileged enough to have an appointment today here with Dr. Krestina Johnson. I have had really bad experiences with many dentists over my lifetime, but she turned around my negative feelings towards going to the dentist. She brought a very positive attitude and made me feel welcome the whole experience. She did great at explaining what she was about to do then executing. With the friendly staff and this dentist still at Avalon, I will be returning in the future."
"They are at the top of their craft. If you are looking for a new dentist you should definitely take them into serious consideration. I've been to the other type of dentist that will mine for mouth gold and you will never get that type of treatment here. In fact they've talked me into less expensive options first. They're highly rated on many sites including a phenomenal track record on AL. "
"Would recommend this dental practice to anyone. This office has been exemplary in every way. The office is very, very clean and the dentist is extremely kind."
"Her office has been excellent. I have used them for the past 7 or 8 years now. The wait time when I visit this doctor is none, it is zero, as soon as you are scheduled, you get there and they are ready for you. It is absolutely rare to find that."

Avalon Dentistry is the place for my teeth; I wouldn't go anywhere else!"

“… What I admire most … is your honesty and integrity. I have always trusted your judgment and have known that if you recommended a solution, you did so because it was the best thing to do. Believe me that was not always my experience prior to coming to your office. I decided a long time ago that the people that I know and respect the most share two traits: They love their profession – and they are excellent at doing their job. You are certainly in that category and I know that I would never hesitate to recommend you to family or friends. You are the best! I am so grateful for your compassion and generosity. The state of my teeth has been a concern and a source of stress for me for the last several years. Thank you for making everything “bearable” – I don’t think I would have made it through without you.”
“… I once heard it said that it must be hard being a dentist knowing that people many times do not want to come see you. You have to be a very special person to alleviate the anxiety and worry that accompanies “going to the dentist.” You are one of those special persons. I have the upmost confidence in your work, as well as your expertise. You never let a patient leave your office until they are satisfied. And if they leave and still are not satisfied, you encourage them to come back so you can address their concern. I think your work is excellent, and your professional attitude about your job and your patients exceed what most people would expect from a dentist … Thank you for being our dentist for these many years. We trust you.”
“… Thank you for all the excellent work you have always done on my teeth. Especially thank you for always being so kind. I never dreaded coming in for a visit, I always know you would make things better. I realize I have been a challenge but you have never made me feel like I was. I appreciate everything you do.”

I would highly recommend this practice for all of your dental needs!!!”

They schedule things correctly. They hire nice staff. Their dental hygienist has always been very professional and very talented. The dentists themselves are very well trained …”
“I've been coming here for years and it's the same every time: I check in, which is always pleasant. Five minutes later, Polly comes to get me. She and I chat and catch up on what's happened over the past 6 months. She cleans my teeth and I check out ... which is another pleasant experience. I can't say enough good things about this group. I can honestly say I don't hate going to the dentist!!”

“They are absolutely wonderful …”
“Dr. Chris Borkowski and the entire staff are wonderful. A few years ago my son chipped his front tooth. I rushed him over just as they were closing. Dr. Chris brought him right in, glued the tooth on and gave me her home phone number. It was Friday and she was concerned that the tooth wouldn't last over the weekend. Sure enough it came off Sunday morning. We called her and she came into the office, rebuilt the tooth and sent him on his way. The tooth is still attached 6 years later …”
