Dr. Stacey Johanson
Dr. Stacey Johanson grew up in Wahpeton, North Dakota. She attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in Minneapolis where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Dr. Johanson has been practicing at The Family Dental Center since then.
Dr. Johanson shares the common Family Dental Center philosophy of “We cater to cowards.” She realizes the dental environment can be a very scary place and strives to make each and every dental experience pleasant. She takes her time to get to know patients and understand their specific dental wants and needs. She believes in helping her patients get the treatment they desire… No pushy salesman at this office. She goes further to explain treatment needs in detail with understandable wording.
“I am fortunate to have chosen a profession that I truly love. The expression on someone’s face after you’ve altered their smile, taken them out of pain, or walked a three-year-old through their very first filling, is a wonderful experience.”
Dr. Stacey lives in Hokah with her husband and two children.
