How “Best Dentists” Are Chosen

Dentists 2016 Logo Emblem Gold75BSo what qualifies a dentist to be one of America’s Best? The National Consumer Advisory Board (NCAB) makes the selection using a number of rigorous criteria. Here are the standards that a dentist must meet to qualify as a candidate for “Best Dentist”:

  • Over four years’ experience
  • Must practice dentistry full time
  • Average over three times the continuing education requirement
  • Have no license suspension or malpractice charges
  • Use magnification
  • Own their own practice
  • Be chosen by other healthcare providers
  • Be highly reviewed online

This combination of criteria ensures that all dentists pass quality control tests put forth by three different judges. First, the NCAB applies their own standard about what it means to be a “Best Dentist.” For example, it might seem odd to include that they are practice owners, but in the minds of the NCAB, this shows that they are dedicated enough to the practice of dentistry to have taken the trouble to become owners. It also means that anyone chosen as a “Best Dentist,” isn’t just a member of a corporate dentistry chain that might prioritize profits over patients. Instead, as an owner and practitioner, they’re more likely to dedicate themselves to the wellbeing of their patients. The NCAB wants dentists to be chosen by other healthcare providers for care because these are educated consumers of healthcare, so their choices have to be weighed accordingly. But the choices of other patients can’t be neglected, either, which is why the NCAB also considers the online ratings a dentist receives. You can’t be a “Best Dentist” if your average patient is unhappy with your work. In addition to winning this national award, Dr. Siegel was named a Top Dentist by the the magazine Suburban Life.
