More Than Straight Teeth

Every member of the team at Johnson & Collins Orthodontics believes that when you feel confident about your smile you can always make a good impression on those you meet. Making that happen is what drives us. You’ll see it in the technology we invest in, but even more in our understanding that it’s not just the way we treat your teeth, but the way we treat you, that makes the difference. If you would like to get a free consultation just get ahold of us.

Our offices are designed to make you feel at home whether you’re 7 years old, or somewhere north of 70. We treat people of all ages and have options to fit every personality.

Meet Dr. Collins

Dr. Collins was described once in an orthodontic journal as “the Thinker”. He is constantly searching for a better way. This is why our office is always changing, growing and searching the world for the best solutions to orthodontic problems. This is also why he is a highly recognized clinical assistant professor in the Orthodontic Department at Texas A&M University Health Science Center in Dallas. A Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, he is also the recipient of awards from the American Association of Orthodontists, the Dr. Tom Mathews Award and the Robert E. Gaylord Award. While teaching, Dr. Collins both lectures and has clinical patients with the young doctors in their three year post graduate residency in orthodontics.

He is the author of several articles in orthodontic journals ranging from microscopic analysis of the cellular effects of accelerated tooth movement, to interesting case reports of unique approaches to treatment. Never satisfied with the status quo, Dr. Collins has designed and patented a new orthodontic appliance system that allows orthodontists to customize every bracket for every patient utilizing advanced imaging algorithms and 3D printing technology. There are two other advanced patents in the works regarding this approach to treatment as well. Along these lines, he serves in an advisory capacity to Ormco, the largest manufacturer of brackets in the USA as a member of their Insiders group.

Professional accomplishments are great, but taking care of people is the greatest and highest of privileges. It fills our heart with joy, especially when it helps those in need. In this regard, we are proud members of the Smile For A Lifetime Foundation to help local children. In addition, Dr. Collins is a volunteer at Clinica Esperanza in Roatan, Honduras where he has a group of children undergoing orthodontic treatment. He along with Ormco donate all the equipment and supplies and he works in the clinic several times a year to provide their care.

A lifelong resident of northeast Tarrant County he attended L.D. Bell High School and married his high school sweetheart, Lynn. Their oldest son Blake is a computer scientist and engineer and lives in Dallas. Their younger son Brent and his lovely wife Erin live in San Antonio where he attends the UT San Antonio Dental School.

Meet Dr. Johnson

Dr. Johnson was raised in Bedford, Texas where his father, Dr. Michael Johnson, practiced orthodontics for 28 years. After graduating from Trinity High School, Dr. Johnson received his Bachelor of Science from Arizona State University in 1991. He then attended Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1996. His orthodontic residency was completed at Saint Louis University where he earned his master's degree in orthodontics. After graduating in 1999, Dr. Johnson returned to Texas to join his father and Dr. Collins in practice. Dr. Johnson has two beautiful children, Alex and Caroline. When he's not busy creating beautiful smiles, he enjoys traveling, playing golf and spending time with family.

Not only did you correct her teeth and bite issues, but now she sleeps great and can stick her tongue out! Angela S.

If you do your part between visits, I’m sure the doctors and staff at Johnson & Collins will meet or exceed your expectations, just as they did for me. Tommy G.

Thank you so much for all that you did for our daughter. Matt
