“If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?” This question was asked of thousands of dentists to help determine who the top-Dentists should be. Dentists and specialists were asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, man-ner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies and, of course, physical results. The nomination pool of dentists consists of dentists listed online with the American Dental Association, as well as dentists listed online with their local dental societ-ies, thus allowing virtually every dentist the opportunity to participate. Dentists also are given the opportunity to nominate other dentists that they feel should be included in the list. Respondents are asked to put aside any personal bias or political motiva-tions and to use only their knowledge of their peers’ work when evaluating the other nominees. Voters are asked to individually evaluate the practitioners with whose work they are familiar. Once the balloting is completed, the scores are compiled and then averaged. The numerical average required for inclu-sion varies depending on the average for all the nominees within the specialty and the geographic area. Borderline cases are given a careful consideration by the editors. Voting characteristics and comments are taken into consideration while making deci-sions. Past awards a dentist has received, and status in various dental academies can play a factor in the decision. Once the decisions have been finalized, the included dentists are checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have an active license and are in good standing with the board. Then letters of congratulations are sent to all the listed dentists. Of course there are many fine dentists who are not included in this representative list. It is intended as a sampling of the great body of talent in the field of dentistry in the United States. A dentist’s inclusion on the list is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow dentists.
