The best! Great dentist and staff.

Dr. Johnson and his team always make a somewhat nerve wracking experience so relaxed and fun! I recommend this practice to every parent I encounter.

I brought my 1 year old to Dr. Johnson for his first dental visit. We had a wonderful experience. Rim, the hygienist, was very warm and welcoming with my baby. In fact he wanted Rim to hold him at the end! Dr. Johnson's bedside manner was fantastic. He a great listener and offered good recommendations about our concerns. We would definitely recommend this office.

Always on time and friendly staff.

Dr. Johnson is a great pediatric dentist. My children have been going to his practice since he opened in West Sacramento. He is very patient and kind with the children. His facility is not overwhelming like some of these larger practices which actually caused my children anxiety. It has enough to keep the kids entertained while they're waiting and while their teeth are being clean. He is very patient and will explain everything to the parents if treatment is needed

My kids had an excellent experience today. The hygienist Danny was amazing she was very friendly and efficient. She was very gentle and engaging with my kids they Loved her ❤️ Dr. Johnson was very informative and relatable to the kids he spoke in terms they would understand and explained things to them at kids level. This was our first visit and we will go back for sure. Office is very clean and kid friendly. Staff is very kind and friendly as well. I hope this will help Moms looking for a great dental experience for their kids. 😄

The entire staff supported my son through a difficult appointment because of his own fear and anxiety. They went above and beyond and I give them the highest recommendation. Thank you

Dr. Johnson and his staff are by far the best in their field. My daughter has been going to Dr. Johnson since her very first appt and she has zero fear of going. She actually looks forward to it and they always make her feel comfortable and cared for. They are open to my many questions and never make me feel like I'm asking too much. I live in Pocket now and still drive to West Sac for her appts and will continue as long as they are open! I would go to see them myself if they took adults! Thank you Dr. Johnson and staff for taking such amazing care of my daughter's teeth! We appreciate all of you! By the way - we had Danny as our hygeinist this visit and loved her! Sincerely, Artis and "Bones"

My 2.5 year old is excited to go to the dentist! Dr. Johnson and his staff make him welcome and comfortable. We love coming here.
5
Always great. Patient with the kids. Great waiting area. Dr. Johnson and his staff always make us feel welcome and I trust them to give great pediatric care! We love coming here!
5
I seriously couldn’t love a pediatric dentist more! My oldest Tj always had issues with dentists until we started coming here. Dr. Johnson and his incredible staff immediately put him at ease. Explaining every step and giving him breaks when he wanted them. My daughter River is smitten! She loves the dentist and sometimes will try to not brush her teeth, because if she gets sugar bugs she gets to go spend time with her “favorite”. 🙄 My youngest Leland doesn’t want to have anything to do with anything involving teeth. As you can imagine, he has cavities. Every time we see Dr. Johnson, he takes special care with Leland. He will take off his goggles so he looks less scary, and sings songs while doing anything involving Leland’s mouth. Best of all, he won’t do any cavity work involving anesthesia without consent from ear, nose, and throat. I know my kids are safe, and loved here and I wish he was MY dentist. Also, always check out his socks and shoes. So fun!

Pleasant office, pleasant staff!!! Def recommend if looking for an awesome pediatric dentist!
5
We had a great experience from start to finish here. The staff is friendly and warm, the front office has lots of things for the kids to play with, they had a welcome sign with all the names of the kids scheduled for the day, which my son loved. They have an OFFICE DOG who is so cute and friendly. <3 The assistant was super sweet and took her time with my son to get to know him and create trust. Dr. Johnson did the same. Nothing was rushed, everything was explained to both my son and to me. I love that there were only a few kids in the office at the time. As someone who used to work for a chronic overbooking doctor, that shows me that they are deliberately booking appointments to give enough time to spend with each patient, and not squeezing them in to increase insurance payments. My son left with a positive memory and as a parent, you really can't ask for much more!

Best Dentist ever! I love going to my appts.
5
An awesome pediatric dentisty! Staff is very friendly and Dr. Paul is awesome! My boys enjoy coming in for their appts.

I think that the service was wonderful. The pediatric dentist, all the way to the amazing way the people there made me less scared of going to the dentist. Thank you! - Olema Schubert, Age 11

For my son's first dentist appointment, I'm stoked with how wonderful it went. You listened to my needs up front, had everything ready when we arrived. My son had a wonderful time in the play room/waiting room. All employees were wonderful to my boy! Came time to dig in, and there's a TV above with earphones and glasses with cartoons. My son didn't even know what was going on, he was glued to the cartoons! Boy sure wish I had a dentist like this when I was a kid!
5
It is always a pleasurable experiance. Both of my sons have been seeing Dr. Johnson for a few years and have never had a bad visit. They look forward to going to the dentist.
5
Dr. Johnson and his friendly staff are always willing to go the extra mile for my child. Every time we visit, we are welcomed with warm smiles from the staff. My child feels comfortable and trustworthy of Dr. Johnson and his team because they explain everything step-by-step. They take their time and work patiently with the child’s comfort level. One highlight of our visit that my child looks forward to is the prize box... definitely a great idea for the kids! I would definitely recommend The Pediatric Dentistry of Sacramento for they are an amazing group that care for their patients!

I had an amazing experience here! Everyone was super nice and helpful. The staff was amazing at making sure my son's dentist experience here would be a great one. The staff was great at explaining every step they were going to do to ensure that my son was comfortable every step of the way. It is a great place to take your little one if it is their first time and if you want exceptional service.
5
We love Pediatric Dentistry of West Sacramento! Always clean, always friendly and always on-time. My nervous little girl was at ease once she was in the chair. The thorough exam was done efficiently and we were on our way in no time! I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and his staff.
5
This practice is fantastic. The front desk staff, assistants, and dentist are all professional and genuinely care about their child patients. Great atmosphere and care. I can’t reccomend anyone more! Thank you!

I love this place. Dr. and staff are both friendly and professional, and my kid is no longer scared to go to the dentist. That's a win in my book.
5
We recently changed dentists for our daughter to PDofWS and love it. They are really great starting from the front office to D.D.S. Paul Johnson and everyone in between. However, out daughter has great teeth and takes great care of them so no problems to deal with so far. We love this place!
5
A huge thanks to Dr. Johnson and the entire staff for creating such a welcoming and caring environment for my children! They've made it so easy for my kiddos to feel as comfortable as can be while at the dentist. We love Pediatric Dentistry of WS!
5
Fantastic pediatric dental practice! Friendly, competent staff, very nice facility, and convenient appointments. My four year old looks forward to her bi-annual dental check ups and so do we. I couldn’t recommend West Sacramento Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. Johnson anymore highly.
5
My son had the best dental experience ever. The doctor and his dental staff are very well trained.

Pleasure experience
5
Dr Paul is awesome. He's always great with my girls. And talks with them about what's going on. Very personable. Even after a late day at office, he called to follow-up on something that was missed at our appointment. Great kids dentist!!!!
5
Dr. Johnson and his staff are friendly and take time to discuss with you the issues your child may have, and what to expect near-term and long-term. If you live in the West Sacramento area, and have children, I suggest you give this pediatric dentistry practice a try. The practice is clean, has a lot for kids to keep them entertained, but is not crazy busy like some of the larger practices, thank goodness!

It was very important for me to find a dentistry that specializes in working with young kids. This was their first trip to the dentist and I wanted to make sure they had a good experience and not fear going to the dentist.The office was kid friendly,as well as the staff. Dr. Johnson was gentle with my girls and made their visit comfortable for them. For me he was very informative and explained what was going on with my children's teeth in great detail. My girls left happy and were excited to tell others when we got home about their visit to the dentist. We will be back and I recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone with little kids.
5
Absolutely wonderful experience for our first time there. They were friendly, easy going, great with the kids & even had their names flashing in lights when we got there. My girls can't wait to go back!
5
Dr. Johnson and his staff are WONDERFUL! Very professional, kind and caring. I appreciate the extra efforts they make to educate my children on good dental health and how they can improve. We are very lucky to have Dr. Johnson and his staff in charge of our teeth :) Comfortable and clean office. Coffee and a device charging spot makes it even better. We can tell they really care about us. Thank you !
5
By far the best pediatric dentistry practice in the region! Wonderful and friendly staff, convenient appointment times, and Dr. Johnson is the absolute best. He's funny, personable and really helps the kids feel comfortable and relaxed. I couldn't recommend this practice more highly!
5
We love Dr. Paul. He is so patient and approachable. He really works with our insurance and my son loves him!
5
Dr. Johnson is some kind of miracle worker. My oldest son has never been able to sit still in a dentist chair...ever. Until now, every visit involved tears and mini panic attacks. So this time, I warned Dr. Johnson what to expect and he was incredibly patient with my son. Explained what he was doing, let him take breaks to ask questions and really involved him in the process. My kid barely twitched during one of the longest visits we've ever done. And for the first time , he actually completed all the work on the agenda in one visit. To say that I am stunned is just the tip of the iceberg. My son is ASKING to come back. So is my 2 year old daughter, but that is less surprising to me. To top it all off, among all the cool prizes in the end of visit treasure chest, there were fidget spinners! 😮🎉 Everybody is happy. Especially me. I don't have to take any more anti anxiety medication anymore when I take my kid to the dentist! 🙌🏽
5
Dr.Johnson and his staff are very professional and yet really work hard to help children overcome their fear of going to the dentist. They provide great distractions with movies etc. It's been a true blessing to find them. They set the tone for great dental health for the future. I really cannot say enough positive things about them :) HUGE Thank You from a mom who had super scared kids who are now excited to go.
5
My daughter hates taking x-rays. They did a great job keeping her focused on something else to help her get through it. Only our second visit and I don't see us going anywhere else.
5
My children look forward to going to see Dr. Paul. They designed their office to make children feel comfortable, and to keep them happy. The whole staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I wish they worked on adults too.
5
Text message reminders were great. The appointment ran on time. Staff and dentist were friendly and courteous. Dr. Johnson is great with our 4 year old daughter. She actually loves going to the dentist's office. He does a great job explaining how to best care for children's teeth at home. Overall experience was excellent. We would highly recommend Pediatric Dentistry of West Sacramento to family and friends. I am a health care provider myself and have high expectations of care. This office does a great job.

The dentist is always courteous and professional. I love taking my son here.

I was very impressed by Dr. Johnson. He interacted so kindly with my daughter, and was very thorough in explaining to me the status of my daughters teeth. He is very knowledgeable and detailed. We came to him for a second opinion, but I will be transferring my kids dental care to his office. Very impressed.
5
Landon is only 11 months old and Dr. Johnson and his team stayed true to their goal of establishing a healthy relationship between a child and their dentistry experience. They took the time to get to know mommy and baby, encourage our healthy habits at home, and educate us on what else we can do. The visit was fun, welcoming, and informing.
5
Very good experience overall.
5
Thanks to Dr. Paul and his team for making going the dentist a delightful experience. Instead of tears, I have three kids who are excited to go to the dentist. Thank you!
5
Dr. Paul was amazing with our little 4yo who had to have her first fillings and a tooth pulled. As difficult as we thought it might have been, it turned out so great thanks to Dr. Paul and his staff. Our little one left happy and with a smile. Thank you so much, we will always try to stay at this office.
