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. MITCHELL L. QUINTNER RECEIVED HIS B.A. AND M.S DEGREES FROM UCONN AND HIS D.M.D. FROM THE UCONN SCHOOL OF DENTAL MEDICINE. A true Milford native, he has practiced in town since 1983. He is active in the community and gives back in many ways, including providing free dental services for 24 years to those in need on “Doctors with a Heart Day.” He has also volunteered in Haiti, and his team raised $23,000 for the “Smiles for Life” foundation and more than $20,000 for the United Way of Milford. He says that “helping people achieve a smile they are proud of is what it’s about.” Sensitive Care takes dentistry to its highest level—from preventive routine care to implants and cosmetic enhancements. Using CEREC CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Quintner offers crowns in a single visit, eliminating the need for temporary crowns. Dr. Quintner is one of only a few area dentists offering Cone Beam Computed Tomography, a reliable and sophisticated 3-D imaging system. His practice offers VELscope oral cancer screening as a standard of care and the Odyssey soft-tissue diode laser to recontour gum tissue with less discomfort and bleeding and no sutures.
