Anyone who hates going to the dentist ~ keep reading please. For me ANY dental work and/or getting my teeth cleaned is followed by 10 to 15 days of jaw pain due to TMJ on both sides. The jaw pain is far worse than any of the many root canals, posts inserted or any other things done. I'll put up with a lot of root canal pain before going to the dentist. So you'll know I'm serious when I say that I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Bryan Johnson and the entire staff at Lewis River Dental: Schedule Coordinators, Insurance Coordinators, Registered Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, and Administrative Assistant! The staff has gone above and beyond to accommodate me. Dr. Bryan Johnson has been professionally exceptional in understanding, discussing, and performing superb dental work. We are fortunate to have Lewis River Dental in Woodland and La Center.

I adore the entire staff at Lewis River Dental! We are always greeted by first name with a smile the moment we walk through the door of their very clean, family friendly, professional offices. Dr. Seal provides fantastic dental care and thorough informative detail to any dental concerns you bring to him.


I have anxiety about dental visits and so hadn't been to a dentist in several years. I had my first appointment at this clinic and it went very well. Everyone was very kind, professional and non-judgemental. I'm happy to say my anxiety is greatly reduced. This is the best clinic I've ever been to!
