Our Dentist Is The Best Around!


Dr. Todd Johnson grew up in Fridley, Minnesota and graduated from Fridley High school. He knew he wanted to become a dentist ever since he was a child. He attended the University Minnesota Morris  where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree. Fulfilling his childhood dream, he continued his education at the University of Minnesota Dental School and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree.

Dr. Johnson started practicing general dentistry in Columbia Heights, MN with Dr. Bruce Nelson and Dr. Boris Zile. He purchased the practice from Dr. Nelson upon his retirement. In 2004, Dr. Johnson built a brand new, state-of-the-art dental clinic with the latest technology .

He created the name Ascent Family Dentistry because he pictured the office to be on the cutting edge of learning and technology and we are always trying to climb higher and achieve greater things. He enjoys his patients and treats everyone like a family member.  His biggest accomplishments in dentistry is making others smile and to make their dental experience a pleasurable one.

Dr. Johnson still resides in Fridley, along with his wife Mary Kay.  He is a huge Gopher fan and tries to attend football and basketball home games as often as he can.  He enjoys watching sports and being outdoors. He loves fishing, hunting, and relaxing at his cabin on Mille Lacs Lake.
