Caring for smiles in North Bend and the surrounding areas.

Craig Johnson, DDS

“I will listen to all of your concerns. I’ll then go over options to address these concerns while minding budget, fears, and time to provide you with compassionate care.”


Dentistry is Dr. Johnson’s passion. He loves meeting new people, working with his hands, and creating life-changing differences over small periods of time.

His interest in the field began after shadowing dentists and volunteering at free clinics during high school and college. Fun fact – Dr. Johnson studied at Loma Linda University … Click to open a new window to Loma Linda University page … , and that’s also where he met his wife.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Central Point, Oregon. I first wanted to be in dentistry when I worked for my Orthodontist the summer before my Sophomore year. After that summer, I was hooked. When I graduated from High school, I knew I wanted to be a hygienist since I always had a great experience with the dental office and loved getting my teeth cleaned. I moved to the coast in 2000 from Central Point, Oregon.

I live in Reedsport with Pat and our two kids, Nick, 20, and Addie, 8. When not working, we love to go camping, fishing, watching movies, playing games, and I love to read. Fun fact: I also ride motorcycles long distance and ride for Mile Monsters Inc. That helps boys who have DMD to live their best life. I rode the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge with my mom. It was so much fun, and I am planning on doing it again in 2024.

One of my favorite quotes is, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt
