Top Dentists 2015

Wanting to hold on to your youthful appearance? Perhaps it’s time you examined your smile. Just as white, straight teeth convey youth, crooked discolored, worn or missing teeth denote age. Add a receding gum line, which gives a longer appearance to teeth, and all of a sudden, one can appear far older than their years.

Keeping a youthful smile relies on the basics: daily brushing and flossing plus annual checkups. But when more is required, whether it be cosmetic or structural, hopefully the following list of the 2015 Top Dentists will likewise provide you insight into some of 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. 

HOW THE LIST WAS CREATED

Who was surveyed?

All active and licensed Colorado Springs dentists were eligible to participate.

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

Voting was held online from February 25 through March 11, 2015. 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.
