Colorado Springs Top Dentists 2014

According to a recent American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey, 92% of Americans believe that an attractive smile is an important asset, whether socially or professionally; yet 50% of Americans do not receive regular checkups. Seeing a quality dentist on a regular basis not only ensures the health and wellbeing of your teeth - but moreover your entire body. Recent studies have linked oral infections with such life-threatening conditions as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and even premature, low-weight births.

Aside from disease, good oral health plays a major part in our general quality of life, enabling us to speak, smile, taste, chew, swallow, and express our feelings. All in all, annual checkups seem like a small price to pay for such outstanding outcomes. Whether you’re in need of a routine exam or specialized work, hopefully Colorado Springs Style’s 2014 list of Top Dentists will provide you insight into our city’s best, as determined by their peers.Do keep in mind, however, there are numerous highly qualified dentists in Colorado Springs, and your relationship with and confidence in your existing dentist is extremely important, as is geographic location, insurance coverage and personal history. It’s simply our goal to keep our readers informed - and above all healthy.

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 21 through March 10, 2014. Dentists who visited the site were instructed to vote by entering up to three names under general family dentistry and one each in all remaining categories. Those nominated reflect the doctors 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.
