Crowning Achievement
Introducing the Philadelphia area’s top dentists and allied professionals devoted to keeping patients’ smiles healthy and beautiful

by Staff

Few people can say they actually prefer to spend part of their day sitting in the dentist’s chair, but the experience by no means has to conjure nightmares. In fact, Philadelphia and its suburbs have a number of compassionate dentists who have devoted themselves to making the experience painless, anxiety free and, dare we say, enjoyable as possible. On the following pages, you will meet them.

In a months-long poll, Philadelphia Life and Suburban Life asked readers to tell us which oral health professionals lead the pack when it comes to keeping patients’ teeth (and the rest of their mouths) healthy and aesthetically pleasing. From pediatric dentists and orthodontists to oral surgeons and periodontists, readers let us know who they consider the “best of the best” when it comes time for patients to open wide.
