Meet Our Team
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.
In his free time, Dr. Johnson enjoys hiking, paddle boarding, traveling, reading, and watching movies and TV. He also likes to play games, golf, pickleball, ski/snowboard, and fish.
Loran Ong, DDS
“I chose dentistry because it allows me to create smiles. I enjoy helping people and working with my hands, and I found that dentistry was a perfect blend of both worlds.”
Dr. Ong was born and raised in Loma Linda, California, and graduated from Southern Adventist University … Click to open new window to Southern Adventist University page… in Tennessee. With his upbeat energy and desire to help others, our dentist looks forward to meeting people of all backgrounds and personalities at Above Dental.
He previously worked in Anchorage, Alaska for two years, and during that time, he married his best friend, Hannah. They live happily with their dog Penny.
Outside the office, Dr. Ong loves photography and traveling with friends and family. He also enjoys biking, hiking, and golfing. A fun fact? Our dentist was the local barber in his free time throughout college and dental school.

Outside of the office, Sarah and her family like to spend time outdoors, working on their property, hiking, camping and gardening. One of her bucket list items includes backpacking for a whole month with her husband and daughter!
I was born and raised in Central Point, Oregon. I first wanted to be in dentistry was when I worked for my Orthodontist the summer before my Sophomore year. After that summer I was hooked. When graduating 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 2 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 help boys who have DMD to live their best life. I rode the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge with my mom it was so much fun 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”, by Eleanor Roosevelt.

Hi there, I’m Erik. I’m doing our social media, website and other cool things. Working at Above Dental is an absolute joy, all of my coworkers are fantastic, and the doctors are fun to work with and for.
On my days off I’m probably either fishing, playing my Xbox/couchy day, looking up exciting cooking recipes, and/or working in/around the house.
Thanks for reading, you will enjoy your visits with us!
