Dr. Timothy Johnston – Founder of Norge Dental Center
It’s not that hard to be unique, just don’t act like everyone else!
Dr. Timothy K. Johnston is an award-winning businessman, lecturer, and seasoned dentist with over three decades of experience. He is the Founder and Owner of Norge Dental Center, a premier dental office and recipient of numerous customer service awards. Dr. Johnston was frustrated with his poor customer service experiences, and while he never specifically set out to inspire others to give great dental care, he always wanted to have his own practice, and he studied diligently on the best ways to do that. As a result, he launched Norge Dental Center in 1989, and the company has since grown into a popular 16-chair practice and has a reputation for its excellent customer service, professional and friendly staff, and team spirit among its staff members. Dr. Timothy Johnston has been featured on Good Morning America, recipient of the Healthcare Heroes Award, 2015, and is the official Cosmetic Dentist to the Miss and Mrs. Virginia Pagent. In his international best-selling book, Ring Bell for Service?: Never Force Your Customers to Get Your Attention, When You Should Already Have Theirs!, he shares valuable customer service lessons any business owner can learn to be an effective leader regardless of your industry.
