Douglas M. Johnson
Treatment Plan & Financial Coordinator
Amber received her dental assistant certificate from Lane Community College and began work for her family dentist, Dr. Melvin Johnson in 1970. She was his chair side assistant and loved the patients and friendly banter that gave his practice its relaxed atmosphere. She married Brad in 1971 and continued to work for Dr. Mel “more or less” during the time their four children were born. In 1991, after a few years of retirement, she began working for Dr. Doug Johnson, this time in the front office. She found the same “family feel” in this practice that she loved while working for Doug’s father. When you visit our office she will go over Dr, Johnson’s treatment plan with you and help you make financial arrangements for that treatment. Amber in involved in her church, loves music, and she and Brad spend as much time as possible with their grand kids.

Professional Highlights: I have been working and growing in the dental field since 1996. I truly love what I do. As a new member of Dr. Johnson’s team, I have no reservation in saying this is one of the most professional, laid back environments I have ever worked for… As patients leave the office they are at ease. Dr. Johnson is known for his whistling while he works. Very relaxed and comfortable says it all.
Education: Concorde Career Institute Portland Oregon, Class of 1997
Interests: Being a supportive wife and mother in raising our two sons and daughter to be the best they can be. I am currently training to run in the 2009 Pacific Crest Marathon. Working out and staying fit is a new hobby of mine. Family fun consists of riding quads, fishing, hunting, camping, and just enjoying the great outdoors.
I am currently completing pre-dental hygiene courses and plan on applying to the dental hygiene program. I am a dedicated student who achieves a 4.0 GPA. Dr. Johnson has given me the tremendous opportunity to learn hands-on about the dental field. I work as an office assistant sterilizing instruments and patient rooms, among many other, fun, responsibilities. I have even had the honor of assisting the doctor with procedures. I enjoy working with his wonderful and caring staff and seeing our fantastic patients!
