2014–2015 Anne Arundel County Top Dentists

Oct 03, 2014 12:30PM, Published by Arden Haley, Categories: The Look, Community



It happens every two years: The What’s Up? Anne Arundel County Biennial Top Dentists Peer Review Survey. That’s when you, our readers, find out who other dentists trust with their own oral health care needs. We sent a survey form to all dentists practicing in Anne Arundel County and nearby communities. We asked, “If you needed to recommend a dentist (other than yourself) to a friend or loved one, which dentist(s) would you recommend in the following specialties?” We then listed eight areas of dental specialty (Endodontics, General Dentistry, General Dentistry—Cosmetic, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, and Prosthodontics). Dentists could vote for up to three candidates per specialty. Only original survey forms (with more than one person nominated) would be counted.

The eager response was impressive and gratifying. There was a great deal of enthusiasm among our dental community. We want to thank the many dentists who took the time to fill in all the categories (and even looked up the proper spelling of each name). Some categories elicited more voting activity than others—and that is reflected in the high number of winners in some specialties.

We like to think of this issue of What’s Up? Annapolis as “a real keeper”—literally. It contains the sort of resource information we are so dedicated to providing to our readers. Keep it handy with your What’s Up? Top Docs and What’s Up? Leading Lawyers issues for easy reference anytime you need professional assistance.—Sarah Hagerty
