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.
