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. DAVID STEBBINS GRADUATED FROM AMHERST COLLEGE with a B.A. in biology and earned his doctorate from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He completed his residency at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY. He has been practicing in Norwalk since 1986. In January 2010, he moved into a solo general and family practice with state-of-the-art equipment to provide patients with superior clinical care in a bright, spacious and comfortable high-tech office with a beautiful, relaxing view of the Norwalk River. Dr. Stebbins treats toddlers to adults with the goal of providing pain-free, minimally invasive dentistry using only the latest clinically proven materials and techniques. “Treatment today has become much easier,” he notes. Laser dentistry technology for teeth, gums and soft tissue lesions means minimal invasion and better clinical outcomes in a shorter period. He incorporates E4D Dental technology to take digital impressions and mill crowns in a single visit with the same high quality from traditional labs.
