Meet Our Team in Columbia

Amanda – Patient Care Coordinator

My name is Amanda, born and raised in the Columbia area. I have been working with Dr. Johnson since 2013. I mainly work at the front desk (come say hi!). Dr. Johnson has trained me to help the surgical assistants when needed. Dr. Johnson refers to me as the “Swiss army Knife” of the office. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my five cats, yes five!. We all know that no one wants to voluntarily see us but if you do decide to come say hello, we will be sure to welcome you into our family.

Julia – Scheduling Coordinator

Shalae – Surgical Assistant

My name is Shalae and I was raised in Baltimore Maryland. I have been an oral surgery assistant for over eight years. I love all things surgical, especially implants. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. I enjoy music and comedy movies, whenever my kids let me watch one. I look forward to meeting new patients as well as old and making everyone part of our family.

Lisa – Office Manager

Gissella – Surgical Assistant

My name is Gissella. I am originally from Nicaragua, however, I have lived in Maryland most of my life. I always had an interest in dentistry. I currently have fourteen years of experience as a surgical assistant. I am new to the Columbia area and have worked with Dr. Johnson since December of 2019. I truly enjoy working at Genesis Oral Surgery and Implantology! Everyone has made me feel welcomed as a part of the family here. I have three beautiful children and I like to treat my patients exactly the same way I would want my kids to be treated. I cannot wait to meet you!
