Dr Laura Johnson

Hello! My name is Laura and I am the current foundation dentist at Sompting.

I am passionate about working together with anxious patients, children and those who require special care. I aim to ensure that they get the highest quality treatment that they need in the best way possible. I believe communication is one of the most important aspects of dentistry, and I will always spend time getting to know my patients and their concerns.

Outside of dentistry I love going on dog walks around the south downs or going to see live music.

Aside from working with anxious patients and those with special care needs, I also am passionate about promoting oral health to the wider community. A current project I am working on includes spending time with carers and teaching them how to look after their patient’s teeth and dentures as part of a normal daily routine. During my time at Leeds I was part of the ‘Open Wide’ community where I visited primary schools and educated children on the importance of oral hygiene and visiting the dentist. I hope to do something similar again soon!
I qualified from Leeds Dental Institute in 2018 with an integrated masters degree where I carried out research into antibiotic prescribing in Dentistry. I then decided to make the big move to Brighton to do my foundation training.
In the future I hope to carry out more training in sedation and special care, but who knows what the future holds!
