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.

Andrea Tooley

Dental Hygienist

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.

Becca Faith

Dental Assistant

My name is Becca, I was born and raised in the area. Graduated local, I have been with Above Dental as an assistant since Jan of 2017.

I volunteered for their first Free Dental Day, and loved the atmosphere, and being able to help so many people. From that day on, I knew that I wanted to be in dentistry. I enjoy bringing peace and comfort to my patients during their visits in our office, as they bring joy to me. Being able to help and give relief is my favorite part of the job.

On my time off, I enjoy going to the beach with my daughter, and having family BBQ’s.
