Timothy Johnson

Dr. Timothy Johnson – Trusted Orthodontist in North Bethesda

Having the opportunity to be an orthodontist means the world to me. I absolutely love being able to transform my patients’ smiles into healthy, functional, and amazingly beautiful ones. Seeing a patient happy and confident with their new smile at the conclusion of treatment is always exciting and gratifying.

I see so many different ages and types of patients. Each is a unique individual with their own concerns, interests, and dreams. The nature of orthodontic treatment allows me to get to know them on a personal level. As their treatment proceeds, I follow their lives and discuss all sorts of topics with them. I hear about what is happening in their lives, at school, on the sports field, in their music, and extracurricular groups. I learn something from every one of them.

Our office is a warm, inviting, and comfortable environment. Patients and their families enjoy the relaxing atmosphere knowing this is a place where they can really feel at home. Our wonderful team truly loves getting to know each patient personally. Though all of our team members are dedicated to learning the newest treatment modalities, and providing the most reliable, advanced care available, those never conflict with their sense of compassion. Their wide variety of interests and sense of humor also make each day fun and interesting. There are always plenty of smiles and laughter to go around!


My educational background includes:

Continuing Education

By attending continuing education meetings, seminars, and remaining involved in professional associations, I ensure that I am always able to provide my patients with superior orthodontic treatment and state-of-the-art modalities that deliver the most rapid, painless, and effective treatment.

I have found the many hours of the Invisalign® continuing education in which I participate to be particularly beneficial in serving my patients.

Home​ and Away from Work

My wife Maddy and I live in Bethesda with our daughter Wesley and son Archie. Away from work, I enjoy watching movies, listening to music, and reading. In my spare time, I also love watching sports and am a big fan of the Green Bay Packers, all Wake Forest teams, and the Washington Capitals.

  • We have brought our two daughters to Drs. Ensor, Johnson, and Lewis from the very beginning. (They have always seen Dr. Lewis, who is outstanding.) Our girls, now 5 and 7, absolutely adore Dr. Lewis and the rest of the staff. I can’t say enough good things about this practice; the facility is gorgeous, the friendly staff genuinely loves children, and the reminder emails and texts sent from the front office are extremely helpful. In fact, my husband and I like the practice so much, we recently decided to become patients ourselves! (We used to go to a different practice just for adults, but now we, too, go to EJL) It’s very convenient for our entire family to go to one practice! In short, we could not be happier. Best dentists we’ve ever been to!

  • Dr. Doshi’s bedside manner is incredible. She had my 5 year old smiling and laughing while he got two crowns and was in the chair. How many dentists sing to their patients to keep them calm? She is wonderful!!

  • Both, my husband and I loved brining our kids to Drs Ensor, Johnson and Lewis’ office. Everyone was very patient with our kids and explained every step to them, making them feel at ease. They let us stay with our children the entire time, and justified the procedures. In addition, they have a big play room and kids leave with a goodie bag feeling like they left a birthday party. We are very thankful.

  • My son actually didn’t want to leave! Since my son has special needs it has been really hard to find a dentist that understands his special needs and how to take that into account when providing services. Dr. Lewis, was great with him! Not only did you have a wonderful and productive dental visit he didn’t want to leave! My kids have been seeing Dr. Ensor since they were 2yrs old. They are 15,16, 17 now. Dr. Ensor is wonderful, knows my children, is quiet and calm, and goes above and beyond. Yesterday my middle daughter met with Dr. Jessica Weber for a crown. Again, FANTASTIC!!!!! Front desk staff is efficient and warm, hygienists are top-notch. The office itself is modern, spacious and bright. We travel from Frederick to Bethesda to see these wonderful Drs.

  • Thank you for the tender services and above-and-beyond kindness that you show Ryan at every visit. Your practice’s willingness to embrace children living with disabilities and tend to their needs while allaying their fears is exceptional. We can’t thank you enough for all you do for Ryan and our family.

  • My son has been a patient of Dr. Ensor’s since his very first dental appointment and he is now 12. She is an excellent dentist with a very gentle and calm demeanor. I recommend her highly! The dental practice is very attentive to children’s comfort, so if a child needs sunglasses to block the overhead light, or a little extra time to relax they adjust their approach to be sure children receive appropriate care and have a positive experience. I love Dr. Ensor! We also see the orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. He is so gentle, funny and nice that children of all ages really respond well to him. It is great to be able to make appointments to see both the orthodontist and the dentist on the same days and receive coordinated care. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and Dr. Ensor.

  • We can’t say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Ensor is a consummate professional– warm and caring with the kids, and clear and reassuring with the parents. Dr. Johnson is a hit with all the kids (and parents!), makes them feel comfortable, and explains things clearly. The staff are equally helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this practice. Have been going there for 10 years. After a tour of the facility we were escorted to the kids area where the kids had a blast playing with the toys. It was great that they allowed brother and sister to interact and support each other through the cleaning. As my son has a lot of anxiety and difficult behavior they were super patient and amazingly good with him!

  • We rave about our orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. Three members of our family are currently his patients (mom and 2 kids) and we could not be happier. His personal attention to each patient (including calling on evenings and weekends after installing a new device just to make sure everything is ok) shows his genuine concern for his patients. Everyone there, from the office staff, to Cara (the billing wiz), to the techs — everyone is delightful to deal with. Not to mention that Dr. Johnson’s work is amazing. Highly recommend!

  • Dr. Weber is an extraordinary dentist! She is excellent at communication, putting the patient at ease and thorough. I had a huge fear of dentists from bad childhood experiences and her manner and professionalism has set me at ease. Now my whole family sees her!
