How Dentists are Selected


To insure the highest level of credibility, all dentists go through a 4-step selection process: Nomination, Application, Verification of Credentials and Listing. This proprietary assessment is specifically designed to identify and highlight the finest dental professionals in the country.
Dentists cannot pay to be listed in our directory.

1. Doctors Nomination: A dentist may be recommended by another dentist, a patient, a healthcare colleague or by our selection committee. Once nominated each dentist is contacted to inform them that they have been endorsed.

2. Application: The dentist is asked to complete an online questionnaire that asks about their training, continuing education, degrees, honors, years of experience, licensure, selections by peers or other healthcare providers, and other aspects of their practices. Our application is specifically designed to identify the finest providers based on their backgrounds, training, patient relationships, reputation and overall commitment to excellence.

3. Verification: If a dentist successfully qualifies, their application goes through our verification process. Our staff reviews the information provided and researches each dentist's credentials, disciplinary actions, certifications and experience. We also carefully check online reviews and testimonials from dozens of search engines, social media and review sites, to insure each doctor provides highly positive patient experiences.

4. Registry Listing: Only after successful completion of all three steps are dentists and dental specialists included in our registry. Our selection process is designed to provide consumers and referring healthcare professionals with the most extensive review possible. We always recommend that consumers also do their own research, include referrals from friends and family, recommendations from other healthcare professionals and other traditional methods to select their dentist.
