Johnson Family Dentistry

Katina Walford
Dental Hygienist

I have been working at Johnson Family Dentistry since 1998 and I love being a hygienist.

I am married to Kevin Walford.  We have two boys; Koven and Kage.  We live 35 miles south of Devils Lake. We have a hunting lodge in Devils Lake and enjoy the outdoors. 

I enjoy scrapbooking with extra time but tend to spend most of my time taking pictures of my boys in their activities. 

Val Keller-Carman
Dental Hygienist

I have worked at Johnson Family Dentistry since 2008.  I am a North Dakota girl through and through. I lived here my whole life.  I graduated from Devils Lake High School and continued my education at LRSC, Minot State and NDSCS where I acquired my degree in dental hygiene in 2004. 

I have two amazing kids; Bradyn and ChayLee.  They know how to keep a mom busy: run, run, run.  My hobbies, that I love, are anything outdoors: hunt, fish, hike and camp.  We tend to make are way to the lake and Sully’s Hill on a regular basis.
