We are Family. We are Dentistry

Bringing out your best smile with our own smiles.

Welcome to Rivers Bend Family Dental clinic

the family-friendly clinic

Where a classic north woods cabin retreat intertwines seamlessly into the heart of Ramsey. If this is your first time here please get yourself comfortable and acquainted with an office TOUR Here. You’ll meet a staff that prides themselves on giving quality, compassionate and detail oriented but never pushy dental care.

We strive to make you feel like you’ve really stepped into a tranquil piece of Minnesota. And once you meet Dr. Sydney Johnson you will agree, it is instant warmth and ease that she diffuses. So many other dental offices say they treat you like family, we’d rather show it through our care.

Please, get to know us because we’ll love to get to know you. We look forward to your appointment whether it’ll be your first or your follow up visit.

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!

So this is my second time coming here, and I feel as though everyone is very good at making you feel comfortable. They are very thorough , and knowledgeable. Alicia is so gentle cleaning my teeth and... very pleasant to talk too. Dr. Johnson always makes sure she covers all the details, and has a nice gentle manner as well. They also tried to give me other options that weren’t as expensive to try first, which I appreciate. It is so hard to find a good dentist that you feel comfortable with, and I loved Dr. O. Very pleased with my service here, and I know I will continue to come here.read more

After a more than disappointing interaction/appointment with Aspen Dental, I opted to support a more local dentistry instead and came to Rivers Bend FDC. What an incredible and attentive staff! Every... part about my visit, from email inquiry to phone and email communication/customer service to in-office exam and cleaning was phenomenal. The team walked me through every step of what they were doing, while they were doing it, and helped me set-up a treatment plan that was concise, fair, thorough and exactly what anyone seeking dental care and work should receive. Could not recommend this place or this team more! Thank you all so so much!read more

Haven’t gone to the dentist in a while. Was able to help me through the processes of getting wisdom teeth removed. Had referrals ready and potential costs of future work I’d need done. Great place.

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!
