I have seen Dr. Leslie Johnson in Oakland for many years and highly
recommend him for all dental care. I have Delta dental insurance, and don't
know what other insurance he accepts. His address is 1880 Pleasant Valley
Avenue (near Piedmont Avenue and the Safeway and Longs at 51st and
I go to Dr. Leslie Johnson, have been for years, and I'm very
pleased with the quality of care. The evening after my first
visit he called me to discuss a treatment plan, he made a crown
for me that fit like a tooth the first time it was inserted, and
his staff are great. ramisima
I am interested in the dentist Leslie Johnson on Pleasant Vally Rd
in Oakland. There is one positive comment on the website from
1997. Can anyone else provide more recent feedback on him?
Pleasant manner? Efficient staff? Up-to-date technology?
Thanks very much.
Les Johnson has been our dentist for over 25 years.
My husband is an M.D. and worked at the same health care
clinic with him some time before then.
He is kind, accessable to his patients, treats people with
respect, takes time explaining things, and very responsive in
I highly recommend him for adults and children.
I find his work precise and careful, and he is always open to
discussing treatment options. He is also wonderful and
patient with my very challenging, over-active 9 year old twin
His office is bright and pleasant, his staff ( dental
assistants and receptionists, etc) are very down to earth and
friendly. You get a call several days in advance to remind
you of your upcoming visit, and a postcard once a year to
remind you of your general check-up and cleaning.
I am not sure what you mean by ''up-to-date technology.''
He doesn' t have digital x-rays, lazers, etc., at this point in
time, if that's what you require.
I believe that his proceedures are state of the art.
We've been very comfortable and confident his treatment.
We are on a Delta Dental plan through my work, I know he
accepts most P.P.O plans like Signa and Met-Life.
I've been seeing Dr. Leslie Johnson at Pleasant Valley dental
for 15 years or so, and I can recommend him and his staff very
highly. Since I haven't been to other dentists recently I can't
compare the technology, etc., but I have had very good care for
my high-maintenance teeth with Dr. Johnson et al. They listen
well, they're very pleasant, and the office end is very well
managed. I haven't had any problems the whole time I've been
there - and that includes both with my teeth and with my
I have been seeing either Leslie Johnson or the dentists in his
practice for several years. He saw my mother on a same day
emergency basis, charged areasonable fee and repaired her bridge
or crown effectively. He fielded a call forwarded by his
answering service at 6 am one sunday morning when my jaw locked
in a tmj episode and insisted I call back if the self help
measures he suggested failed. You do have to ask to see him,
otherwise you tend to be assigned to the younger dentists in the
practice. I find them to be competent. I'm always seen w/ in 5-
10 minutes of appointment time. They call to insure that you
confirm your appointments. I have had no billing difficulties
visa vis insurance and have had my carrier switched once or
twice since I began w/ the practice.
I have been going to Dr. Johnson since I arrived in California
in 1994. I think he is terrific (wonderful manner) and his
staff is very efficient and he uses all the latest technology
(as much as I can tell). One thing to note, my husband stopped
going to Dr. Johnson ONLY because he couldn't stand his wife
Carol who annoyed the heck out of him. She works the desk but
frequently interrupts Dr. Johnson while he's working which seems
to annoy him as well.
I've gone to Dr. Leslie Johnson for several years and he's the
best dentist I've ever had. He's extremely conscientious - he
called me in the evening after my first appointment to discuss
my treatment plan. He does excellent work - he's done a couple
of crowns for me and they fit perfectly the first time! His
staff is very nice, and he is too, and he clearly cares deeply
about doing quality work. I picked him out of the UCB
I can recommend our dentist, Leslie Johnson, DDS, 654-5752, 1880 Pleasant
Valley Road, Oakland. He's not a pediatric dentist but he's very good with
children, and with adults. He takes Delta.
