Camille, Gainesville

Having had a few unpleasant dental surgeries in the past, I was concerned about how the pain would be handled. This was, by far, the best experience I have ever had. Dr Darby and all of the staff are kind, humorous, and very compassionate. I hope I don't need any more procedures, but if I do, I know that I am in great hands!

Mark, Homosassa

Dr. Johnson did three implants on my wife and is doing one on me. He is very gentle and an expert in his field. I rate him as the best dentist you can get.

Alberta O, Ocala

after 18 years, Dr Darby and team are taking great care in pointing out any issue that come and go over time. I just love the professionalism and personal care they show me. I feel like family :-)

Debra S, Concord

These 2 doctors are compassionate, great surgeons , and have only the patient care as their #1 priority

Linda H, Ocala.

I had a procedure done by Dr. Darby, and I must say it was surprisingly painless. Dr. Darby and his staff are professional, competent, and compassionate. I would not hesitate to return if the occasion arose.

Susan B, Ocala

My husband I have been going to Dr Darby for 6+ years. We chose him because of his reputation among friends, community and dentists. When I started going to dr Darby I lived with uncomfortable and sensitive teeth. My teeth never hurt now! For anyone living with painful teeth you can imagine what a gift his care has been for me Both my husband and I have needed implants and Dr Darby has done an exceptional job. Implants are complicated and I would urge those looking for a surgeon to be careful and go to an expert and not someone inadequately trained. There is much study and diligence needed to prepare for a proper implant. It may require bone grafting and knowledge along with skill are critical to a good outcome. A good implant requires a lot of the patients and surgeons time. In addition to being treated by a great surgeon I have been thrilled with his fine staff. The technicians and front staff are courteous and genuinely nice people.

Dino C., Hernando, Fla

Kaelen T., Ocala

I was extremely nervous about having the procedure done. Everyone in the office made me very comfortable which made the experience better. If I needed any further procedures, I would not hesitate to come back to this office

Tricia S, Ocala

My 10 year old was very apprehensive about having oral surgery. Dr. Johnson, Tricia and Michelle could not have made it any easier on her. She had a great recovery due to an awesome surgeon and super supportive staff post-surgery and for follow ups. Thank you so much for your excellent care!!

Jean E, Dunnellon, FL

Great service. The entire staff was wonderful and always friendly. Made my visit easier to take.

Louann P., Spring Hill

Dr Darby and his staff are professional, efficient courteous and friendly. I had a full mouth surgery done in 2010 and the results have been very positive. I do spend about 20 minutes every night following the prescribed procedure but it has really helped me to keep my mouth healthy. i have always been happy to see these people. They are wonderful!

William N, The Villages

The entire staff is accomplished, efficient, and proficient. The experience with Dr. Darby has been perfect. Before anything, a detailed exam is performed and any recommended procedures are explained. The processes and the prognoses are related to the conditions noted in the exam. The overall experience with both the doctor and staff could not be better.

Rick L, The Villages Fl

Dr Johnson was great. The whole process was planned with great care

Jenna B., Belleview

My son has had an awesome experience with Dr. Johnson and his staff. We were very informed before the procedure and they took great care of him during the procedure. After the visit, they were available for any questions or concerns. We highly recommend this office to anyone needing orthodontic care!

Janice W., Ocala

very friendly staff, Dr. Johnson has been awesome throughtout the entire implant process. I would highly reccomend the office to anyone.

Edie, Ocala

Everyone at the office was wonderful

Tracey S, Ocala

Great Experience. Very nice staff.


I have been a patient of Dr. Darby for many years and thought it about time to praise him and his staff. They are the best. Kind, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Darby performed surgery for clinical crown lengthening recently and my post op experience was pain free. I was amazed at this and Dr. Darby humbly admits it had a lot to do with my compliance post op. He called it "Team work". I highly recommend Dr. Darby and his efficient staff when you are looking for the best.

Christina, Ocala

Dr. Johnson and his staff are very friendly and easy to deal with. My son Carson felt very comfortable during his gum graph procedure. We would definitely recommend this office to friends and family.

Gary J., Gainesville

Gloria Bowman, Dunnellon

I have been coming to this office for almost two years. I have been seeing Dr. Darby whom is so very pleasant, warm, comforting, and totally professional. He goes above and beyond in every area with his patients. I have never felt pain, i am anxious and they all made sure to insure my comfort. From the moment you walk in you are so very warmly greeted. All the staff makes you feel so comfortable and welcomed. The ladies are very very delightful professional in every way and are very concerned about you. I highly recommend this facility for your needs. Look no farther, you will be totally satisfied.

First visit, cleaning, surgery, and postop care have all been amazing. The staff is extremely knowledgable, kind, and caring. I was impressed with everything about the staff and Dr. Johnson. I highly recommend this office for anyone needing periodontal surgery. The waiting room was very nice. I wish I had more words, but amazing fits very well.

Cori Z., Ocala

Dr. Johnson successfully completed implant surgery and alleviated any dental anxieties that I have had in the past. The Staff was awesome and friendly and very helpful.

Catherine Schenck, Ocala

Very satisfied with the work that was done...

Pat S, Ocala

I was very nervous about periodontal surgery because I had heard so many stories about how painful it was. I can honestly say that I had no pain during the surgery and a painless recovery. The hardest part of the recovery was not brushing my teeth. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and his wonderful staff.


Dr. Johnson is an awesome surgeon. I didn't even feel the injections (bee stings as he calls them). My gum graft looks amazing and I had no post operative issues. Would recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone needing dental surgery.

Joey D., Inverness

I've been a patient of Dr. Darby for 19 years. I've received nothing but excellent care and would recommend Dr. Darby and the friendly staff to anyone needing to go through gum grafts, extractions and bone grafting. I can not say enough about the close monitoring I experienced after surgery and Dr. Darby's late night phone calls. If I could leave Dr. Darby 10 stars I would! ;)

Darrick B, Hernando

You can get no better doctor than Dr. Darby. I have used him since 2004 when he began treatment for my periodontal disease. Dr. Darby is meticulous, caring, proactive, and--most important to me--honest. If you want the best periodontist, go see Dr. Darby.
