Meet the ‘J’ in EJL, Dr. Timothy Johnson. EJL is the updated name for Morgenstein and Levy, the original name of our practice when it was established in 1970. Dr. Johnson has been there since the beginning, having worked for Drs. Morgenstein and Levy for a number of years. When the practice was taken over in 2013, only the name changed to EJL Dental - the practice continues to provide the same level of care and service that our patients have come to expect.
Dr. Johnson, affectionately called Dr. J around the office, grew up in Wisconsin. He attended college at Wake Forest University and then went on to Dental School at Tufts University. He completed his post-graduate residency in general dentistry on the Navajo Native American Reservation in northern Arizona. He was not done yet as he went back to Tufts University to complete his residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. As our highly qualified orthodontist, Dr. J has the opportunity to transform his 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 rewarding for him.
Dr. Johnson shares the same goal as Drs. Ensor (the “E” in EJL ) and Lewis (the “L”) - to continue to provide top-quality dentistry and orthodontics to all of their patients in a warm, welcoming and friendly environment. The doctors continually incorporate the latest technologies into their practice, as they become available. All of the staff take continuing- education courses to constantly advance the level of care to provide the quickest, safest and most-gentle treatment possible. The highly-skilled team at EJL strives each and every day to ensure that our nearly 50-year tradition of delivering superior, upscale, friendly and professional care continues.
Dr. Johnson’s father and grandfather were orthodontists before him, so it’s no surprise that he wanted to be a part of the dental field, as he literally grew up around braces! Being an orthodontist means he gets to work with patients who want to improve their appearance or placement of their teeth, or have problems chewing due to a bad bite. He thoroughly enjoys helping each patient transform into someone who is proud of their new, beautiful smile! Speaking of beautiful, Dr. J lives in Kensington with his beautiful family- his wife Maddy, who is also an orthodontist, daughter Wesley and son Archie. When he’s not at the office, he can almost always be found with them. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, movies, and being active outdoors. He’s a big sports fan and spends a lot of time rooting for the Green Bay Packers, all Wake Forest teams and the Washington Capitals.
Dr. Johnson also roots for EJL Dental as we deliver great service and convenience for our patients. Every member of the family, no matter what age, has a place in our practice--a toddler coming for a first pediatric dentist visit, a teenager coming for a routine hygiene visit, or an adult coming to learn more about cosmetic tooth whitening. The fact that we also offer orthodontics to patients of all ages under the same roof, makes it convenient for families to take care of all of their oral health needs in one place. Be sure to book your family’s dental visits with us here. Dr. Johnson and his team would be delighted to serve you!
