Did you see the Periodontal Associates doctors in 5280 Magazine’s Top Dentists this year? The doctors here have been chosen for every year since the beginning of 5280’s Top Dentist honor. Here’s a little bit about how 5280 chooses dentists.
How we come up with the Top Dentists list.
This list is pulled from the 2015 Top Dentists database, which is created using peer evaluations and includes listings for hundreds of dentists and specialists in Colorado alone. To create its list, topDentists asked dentists and specialists a personal question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer him or her to?” The nomination pool consisted of all active dentists listed online with the American Dental Association, as well as with dental academies and societies. (Dentists could also nominate others who may not be on those lists.) Respondents were asked to consider experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and physical results. After responses were compiled, dentists were checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have active licenses and are in good standing. We realize there are many fine dentists who are not on this list; a dentist’s inclusion is based on the subjective judgments of fellow dentists. For more information, visit usatopdentists.com.
