Meet Drs Ryan and Erica Johnson

Let us introduce ourselves. We, Ryan D Johnson & Erica L Johnson, are a husband and wife dentist team. Our journey together began in dental school at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine and both graduated in 2009. We now call Springfield, IL our home and live here with our daughters, Hallie and Hannah. Naturally, central Illinois was a perfect location for our practice, about halfway between both our families. We achieved our dream of owning a dental practice together and can’t wait to share the experience with you!
Dr. Ryan grew up in Rockford, IL and attended the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. He has a wonderful sense of humor and brings laughter into his interactions with his patients so they are comfortable from the very first appointment. Dr. Erica grew up in Metropolis, a small town in southern Illinois. She received her bachelor’s degree in Biological Science from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. She likes to bring her small town feel in treating your family as if it were her own.
