John Edwin Johnson, DDS, ABO, Retired Orthodontist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in orthodontics.
Inspired by his uncles, who were both renowned in the Louisville, Kentucky community for their dentistry skills, Dr. Johnson aspired to follow their example and build himself a distinguished career in the medical field. Upon receiving a Doctor of Dental Surgery from St. Louis University in 1956, he went on to serve with the U.S. Army at Ford Gordon, Georgia as a captain in the dental core. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Johnson joined a private practice in New Albany, Indiana where he served as an orthodontist for 44 years until his retirement in 2000. To attest to his legacy, he can also be found in the 54th through 58th editions of Who’s Who in America, the second edition of Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare and the 22nd through 27th editions of Who’s Who in the Midwest.
A diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Johnson has enjoyed an illustrious career in orthodontics and public service. He hopes to be remembered as a skilled professional but, more importantly, as a southern gentleman. Looking back on his career, Dr. Johnson recalls joining his uncle on trips to New York and Pennsylvania to give lecturers to dental departments as a memorable highlight. Presently, he maintains affiliation with the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, European Orthodontic Society, Southern Association of Orthodontists, South Central Dental Society and Indiana Dental Society, of which he served as president of the south-central component in 1968 and 1969.
