Dr. Ben Johnson completed his dental school training at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA graduating with honors. During this time he traveled to Haiti after the devastating earthquake to provide relief medical help. He was accepted to and completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, IL. During his residency, Dr. Johnson was exposed to the full scope of maxillofacial surgery including dental extractions, anesthesia, reconstructive and orthognathic surgery, and facial trauma surgery.
Dr. Ben is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the Washington State Society of Oral Surgery, and the American Society of Dental Anesthesiology. He is on staff at Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue, WA and Valley Medical Center in Renton, WA.
Dr. Ben met his wife for the first time in the office of an oral surgeon where he was working part time. “I like to say it was love at first bite, but she doesn’t remember meeting me.” Needless to say, they eventually married and now have four boys and one girl. They enjoy spending time with their kids in the outdoors and enjoy watching the Seahawks!
