Top Dentists 2014, the Elite Behind the Best Connecticut Smiles

How Our Dentists Are Chosen For 2014, we sent questionnaires to every dentist licensed in Connecticut— more than 2,800 — asking them to recommend a dentist to whom they would send a loved one for care in seven categories.

The alleged Aug. 4 attack on U.S. Navy destroyers USS Maddox and USS Turner Joy by North Vietnamese motor torpedo boats, was cited by Pres. Johnson in a speech to the American people on Aug. 6, and Congress voted near unanimously on the resolution the next day (which passed 416-0 in the House, 88-2 in the Senate). Citing this alleged attack by the North Vietnamese, the resolution “approves and supports the determination of the President,...
