Ms. Vanda Johnson RDH, RDA


Vanda is one of the founding members of the Your Special Smiles Team. Before she joined us she had extensive experience as both a dental assistant and a dental hygienist. She returned to dentistry out of retirement to help us get set up. She was instrumental in our development and we are very thankful to have had her expertise guide us. Though she is now officially retired from dentistry, she will always be part of our team.

Maria joined our team as we brought assisted oral hygiene to DeSano Place. She helped us expand our program. She learned much of what we do virtually during the pandemic. We were so impressed with her ability to adapt and learn in such a difficult time.  We are grateful for Maria and what she brought to our team as a partner. She has taken her career in a new direction and we wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavors.
