Dr James Johnson

johnsonI am excited to join the Acierno Family Dental team.


I was born and raised in Michigan in the metro-Detroit area. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Neuroscience, and continued my dental education at the University of Michigan Dental School completing my DDS degree. I am a member of the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, and American Dental Association.


After graduation, I moved to Chicago and began working in Medicaid clinics, providing care for the area’s underprivileged.  I was also an associate at a large practice in downtown Chicago that focused on cosmetic dentistry.  Now, I am looking forward to becoming an important part of the Acierno Family Dental team started by Dr. Michael Acierno.


I am committed to providing you and your family excellent dental care. I believe in the Acierno Family Dental philosophy where we provide patient-centered care. You are always involved in the decision making process.  My number one concern is not only your dental health but your overall health.  Through continued professional growth opportunities, I am able to stay current with the latest dental trends. At Acierno Family Dental we use the latest dental technology that will keep you and your family’s dental health our number one focus.


In my free time I enjoy biking along the lakefront trail, exploring Chicago, and participating in various dental causes such as the annual Oral Cancer Walk.  I am excited to join Dr. Acierno as the team dentist for the Chicago Wolves.


Acierno Family Dental is proud to have you and your family as patients.  We are always accepting new patients and know that the best referrals are from you.


I look forward to meeting all of you soon.


Best regards,


Dr. James Johnson

Thank you for choosing our practice for your dental health needs.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

I grew up on the northwest side of Chicago where I attended Notre Dame high school for boys.  As a high school student at Notre Dame, I became involved in sports, theater and academics. 

After graduation I went on to attend Creighton university in Omaha Nebraska.  I chose Creighton because of their strong healthcare graduate programs as well as their strong Jesuit background.  I graduated from Creighton undergrad with a double major in Biology and Environmental Science.
