Colorado Springs 2013 Top Dentists

No longer do we solder gold bands over natural teeth, holding them in place with pins placed through the teeth themselves, as they did in the times of the Greeks and Phoenicians. Nor do we sport dentures of whalebone and hippopotamus ivory as our forefathers did.  Although we do tend to don a little “bling” now and then to posture our wealth, and in some cases attract the opposite sex.

Today, dentistry has become an art that encompasses the latest in education, technology and innovation, and those who practice it, caring professionals as concerned for their patients’ health as their smile. 

It is our hope that the following list of dentists will provide you insight into our City’s best, as determined by their peers. However, if your dentist should not be listed, please don’t assume you need to make a change, as there are numerous highly qualified dentists in Colorado Springs. Your relationship with and confidence in your dentist is extremely important, as are such issues as personal history, insurance coverage and location. It is simply our goal at Style to keep you informed–and above all healthy.

THE LIST

Who was surveyed?

All active Colorado Springs dentists who are members of the Colorado Dental Association were eligible to participate.

What instructions were they given in order to complete the survey?

Voting was held online from February 25 – March 10, 2013. Dentists who visited the site were instructed to vote by entering the name of the general dentist or specialist that they would refer a friend or family member to should need arise.

Did specialists vote solely on their own specialty, and vice-versa for general dentists?

No, all dentists could vote across the board.

Could a dentist vote for her or himself?

Technically, yes, but most dentists only recommended their colleagues.

Are the dentists listed in any particular order?

The dentists are listed by specialty, in alphabetical order, as specified by the American Dental Association.

How was the number of dentists decided upon?

The top six percent of the total number of dentists in each category were selected. Increases occurred with ties, and a decrease where a total of less than six percent were nominated.

Were respondents allowed to make comments?

This is a straight listing – no comments were allowed to influence the final list.

How is this an objective listing?

Dentistry is a branch of medicine that relies heavily on dentists referring to one another. Their insight is a very effective method of determining who is well respected in their field.

Can doctors pay to be on The List?

No compensation of any kind from dentists is accepted in return for being included in The List, nor are dentists paid for their participation in the survey.
