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. We received 470 completed questionnaires (nearly 17 percent), a very good return rate for a survey like this. 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.
When Dr. Peter Nelson founded Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry years ago, his unwavering focus was on three distinct goals:
First, he vowed to be the ONE Dentist offering superior aesthetic and dental health results once only available to the Hollywood elite.
His second goal was to be the ONE Dentist that would truly change the way people felt about going to the dentist— even the most fearful— through gentle procedures, a variety of sedation options and a level of personal care with a spa-like experience.
Third, he set out to be the ONE Dentist that really would make a lasting difference in the lives of the patients he treated. Visit his office or listen to testimonials on his website to realize he has done that.
Dr. Nelson’s degree in dental medicine from Columbia University has been followed by training at The Pankey Institute and the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies where he has earned their respected endorsement as an “LVI Dentist.”
