Emily Johnson-G’Sell, DDS
Dr. Johnson-G’Sell always loved visiting her own dentist when she was growing up and is excited to be able to provide wonderful experiences and quality care to her patients of all ages. She loves the rewarding feeling that comes from helping patients, especially when serving those who have been unsatisfied in the past or who have dental fears. Dr. Johnson-G’Sell received her Bachelor of Science degree from Truman State University. She then graduated in 2011 from the University of Missouri Kansas City School of Dentistry with honors, and was invited to continue at the school as a member of the dental faculty. Though she enjoyed teaching and working with dental students, Dr. Johnson-G’Sell felt her true passion in working one-on-one with her patients to create healthy smiles! She loves the variety and the challenges of general dentistry and enjoys working with great specialists to deliver the best care possible to children as well as adults. As a “born-and-raised St. Louis girl” who values her family very much, she is delighted to be able to practice in her hometown. It is true that dental offices are not all created equal and Dr. Johnson-G’Sell feels blessed to be a part of the wonderful, energetic team at Magnolia Family Dental!
Dr. Johnson-G’Sell is an active member of many local and national dental organizations. She has served as a delegate for the Missouri Dental Association House of Delegates as well, helping to make decisions that will have a positive impact on our local dental community. She regularly attends meetings for local dental study clubs and continuing education seminars. In her free time, Dr. Johnson-G’Sell enjoys being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and exploring the shops and restaurants of our neighborhood. They enjoy walks around Francis Park near their home with their two sons and their rescue dog, Harley.
She met her husband Chris G’Sell while they were both in dental school. Dr. G’Sell now practices part-time in our office as well! He allows our team to offer a wider range of surgical services, including implant placement and dentures.
Dr. Johnson-G’Sell’s passion for quality dentistry, her strong values, genuine compassion for her patients, and lighthearted sense of humor make her a great leader of our dental team. She looks forward to meeting you at your next visit—when you join our terrific community of patients and friends!
