What's Up Magazine

Top Dentists 2018 (Anne Arundel County)

Oct 01, 2018 12:00AM ● By Brian Saucedo

Every two years, we survey hundreds of local dentists by mailing our What’s Up? Anne Arundel County Biennial Top Dentists Peer Review Survey. And lucky for you, our readers, many of these dentists let us know exactly who they trust with their own oral health care needs. 

In the spring, we mailed a survey package to all dentists practicing in Anne Arundel County and throughout the Mid-Shore (Eastern Shore counties of Queen Anne’s, Kent, Caroline, Talbot, and Dorchester). 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 10 areas of dental specialty (Endodontics, General Dentistry, General Dentistry—Cosmetic, Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, and Prosthodontics). Dentists could vote for up to three candidates per specialty. Only original survey forms would be counted. 

The healthy response was impressive and gratifying. Judging by the number of votes cast and the number of dentists nominated, we are fortunate to have so many well-respected dentists practicing in the Chesapeake region. We want to thank the many dentists who took the time to fill in all the categories. 

Please note that these results represent those individuals who clearly received the most substantial number of votes, not everyone who received a vote. Some categories elicited more voting activity than others—and that is reflected in the higher number of winners in some specialties. The first dentist listed under each category is the leading vote-getter, proceeded by dentists listed in alphabetical order by last name. They are all Top Dentists.

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 them handy with your What’s Up? Top Docs and What’s Up? Leading Lawyers issues for easy reference anytime you need professional assistance.—James Houck
