For the third year in a row, when Atlanta Parent asked their readers about their favorite oral health professionals, moms chose Dr. Hernandez and Dr. Johnson of Vital Smiles! We love this! Honestly, mom’s opinions matter more to us than anyone else’s, because no one knows a kid’s world like their mama does. We’re thrilled to have this honor, and we are proud of our doctors and staff who work hard every single day to deliver top-notch care.

Dr. Hernandez and Dr. Johnson are those people who leave a positive impact everywhere they go: that’s why parents bring their kids here! Whether they are doing a routine cleaning, explaining a procedure to a parent, offering advice or training to a staff member, or participating in a local charity effort, our doctors exemplify what parents are looking for. They exude professionalism, genuine care, experience, community connection, the ability to put children at ease, and integrity.

Our doctors aren’t the only ones committed to providing excellent care. From the front desk to the hygienists, to the dentists, the staff at both Vital Smiles and MH Orthodontics all specialize in the care of children and adolescents. Together, they work with parents, schools, community organizations, and other medical professionals to ensure that every child in their neighboring communities has access to education about proper oral hygiene.
