Top Dentists 2009
Which dentists do other dentists recommend? Here are the results of our exclusive survey.
The readers of Connecticut Magazine have long been interested in quality health care, and it's in this spirit that we offer this year's Top Dentists.
For 2009, we sent questionnaires to every dentist licensed in Connecticut -- over 2,700 total -- asking them to recommend a dentist (other than themselves) to whom they would send a loved one for expert dental care in seven categories: endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, prosthodontics and general dentistry.
The response was considerably higher than last year's -- we received 577 completed questionnaires (21 percent), a very healthy number for this sort of survey. Consequently, every dentist listed on the pages that follow has been recommended by a significant number of his or her peers --indeed, the only way to make the list is through these peer recommendations.
As always, we like to say that every dentist who makes the list is a good one, or at least a recommended one, but not every good dentist in the state makes the list. Because of that, we suggest you use this list as a reference, not the final word, as you search for someone to help you with your dental needs. You must ultimately do your own due diligence in order to decide which dentist is right for you or your loved one.
