2018 Top Dentists
Meet the dental health professionals devoted to creating bright, beautiful smiles in the Greater Philadelphia Area.

by Bill Donahue

“We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.”

Mother Teresa once uttered these words—and she was right, because a smile can cause a chain reaction of positive thoughts, feelings, and actions that take on a life of their own. Yet some people don’t like to share their smile, either because they’re not happy with the alignment or color of their teeth, or maybe because they’re missing teeth. As a result, they hide their smile, with hand over mouth, missing out on so much as a result.

For those who in need of treatment to solve a dental issue of any sort, or for those who simply want to make their smile as bright and spectacular as possible, the Greater Philadelphia Area has an abundance of dentists, orthodontists, and oral surgeons, among other dental professionals, who are ready and willing to serve. 

For those who don’t have a dentist they trust, where do you begin? Thanks to our readers, you now have a head start. We guided our readers to our website and asked them to answer a simple question: “Which men and women in the Greater Philadelphia Area deserve the title ‘Top Dentist’?” Our readers did not disappoint, and we supplemented their suggestions with some of our own, based on stories about some truly remarkable individuals we’ve featured in recent issues. 

On the following pages you’ll find the results—our 2018 Top Dentists—arranged by area of specialty.
