Sydney Johnson, DDS

Hailing from Green Bay, Wisconsin Dr Sydney Johnson completed her undergraduate education at Upper Iowa University and went on to receive her doctorate in dentistry from Marquette University in 2020. Although a transplant to Minnesota, Dr. Johnson is excited to call the Twin Cities home.

Throughout her training, Dr. Johnson has developed a strong treatment philosophy of patient-centered care, and understands that everyone’s dental needs are unique. Dr. Johnson strives to help patients find confidence in their oral health, and aims to make every patient feel at ease while providing a positive experience for all ages.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Johnson enjoys spending time with her husband, and can usually be found at the gym or experimenting with new recipes at home. Dr. Johnson enjoys spending time outdoors and loves exploring new restaurants and activities around the twin cities!

Why I Should Find A Local Dentist Near Me

If unsure about making the switch in dentists here are some considerations to think about:
If you’ve just moved to the area it’s a great time to ask your local neighbors who they see or recommend in the area. A big win if they are located conveniently where you go dining, grocery shopping and run errands in your day to day.

A great place to start is by reading online reviews. Google, Nextdoor, Yelp are all great resources. What many of your peers say can give you a clue of the overall experience given by the practice. Pick up the phone and call the office. See how pleasant the conversation is. Was it easy to make an appointment? Do their hours work conveniently with yours?

What Can I Expect With A New Patient Appointment?

Establishing a relationship with a new dental office can feel like a lot of unknowns. Let’s shed a little light on how we do it here at the Rivers Bend!
  • When you call, email or use the online scheduler, we will make a special note that this is your first time to our practice. To help give you a faster first time check in process, please feel free to fill out the forms online (here). We welcome any special requests you may have, just let us know, and we will try our best to accommodate your needs.
  • Arrive 10 minutes so you can take a deep breathe and relax in our beautiful North Woods Cabin Retreat Themed waiting room. In the mean time, we will make sure all your information you filled earlier is correct in our systems. Also don’t forget the insurance card if you do have one.

  • Come back with one of our wonderful hygienist where they’ll see what it is that’s bringing you into the office that day. Whether for something routine or more specific, we try to tailor the appointment to your needs for that day. We want to get to know you and help serve you best.
  • Your doctor will be in to address any concerns you may have and do a thorough exam. If there are any findings, we will let you know and give you an estimate so there are no surprises.
  • If it’s been not too long since your last appointment and it may be more routine, a refreshing cleaning will be given by your hygienist.
  • Take home a goodie bag and let everyone see how spic and sparkly your newly cleaned teeth look 🙂
