Christopher J. Johnson D.M.D.

Christopher Johnson

Dr. Johnson has six years of post-graduate training in head and neck surgery. His Oral and Maxillofacial residency at the University of Florida, Jacksonville was heavily influenced with head and neck trauma, facial reconstruction, dentoalveolar and facial cosmetic surgery. Dr. Johnson and his wife Lisa first met during his trauma and general surgery rotation. She worked as a trauma ICU nurse.

They moved to Orlando and were married in Casa Feliz, Winter Park. Dr. Johnson joined a group practice in the Orlando area. After two years he and Lisa decided to start their own practice and selected Clermont, west of Orlando, as their primary location. Although they still live in Orlando proper, they look to relocate to Clermont in the next few years.

After many failed IVF attempts, Dr. Johnson and his wife decided to adopt and they feel this was the best decision they have made as a family, having not looked back. They welcomed their first child, Isabella Faith, into their home on February 16, 2008. They welcomed their second adopted child, Nicholas Alexander, to the family on October 12, 2009. Dr. Johnson currently practices in Clermont, Florida at Advanced Faces since 2004.
