Dr. Johary's late father was an educator and was always wanting to learn more.

He graduated from the 600 hour 2-year Univ. of FL Advanced Masters Program (CDP 24); two successive 1-year Ortho programs (300 hours total), and countless hours of Implant Surgical Courses. All of the Associates that Dr. Johary hires are also well-trained and experienced; almost all Dental procedures are performed at each location (in-house). Furthermore, all workmanship has a written conditional lifetime warranty (unheard of in Dentistry!). Dr. Johary also believes that Dentistry should be affordable, thus making it readily accessible to everyone. Good oral home care and regular professional maintainance is the foundation for a healthy oral cavity, and being a former Hygienist, cleanings and Periodontal maintenance is priority and highly emphasized.
