HOW OUR WINNERS ARE CHOSEN: For 2012, we sent questionnaires to every dentist licensed in Connecticut—over 2,800—asking them to recommend a dentist to whom they would send a loved one for care in seven categories. We received 550 completed questionnaires (20 percent), a very good return rate. Thus, every dentist listed 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. 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 makes the list. You should use it 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 ones.

Dr. Goldberg began practicing in 1970, and was joined by Dr. Marcus in 1999. “Our goal,” says Dr. Goldberg, “is to remain at the forefront of dental technology.” Dr. Alan Goldberg (left) received a B.S. in biology from Brooklyn College and his doctorate from the New York University School of Dentistry. He was a clinical instructor at The Fones School of Dental Hygiene. In 1981 he earned the degree of Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. “I am proud,” he says, “to be treating second- and third-generation patients, and am grateful for my long-term, dedicated staff.” Dr. Andrew Marcus (right) has a B.A. in biology from Binghamton University and his doctorate from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completed a residency at Staten Island University Hospital. He received the Excellence In Scholarship in Dental Materials Award. Dentistry, he says, gives him the ability to “change someone’s life by listening, caring, and providing solutions to achieve optimal dental health.”
