Top Dentists 2017



Smile and the world smiles with you

Everyone loves a happy grin — as a Chinese proverb points out, “Every smile makes you look a day younger” — but not everyone loves opening their mouth for all the world to see. Embarrassed by crooked teeth or unsightly stains, many people look into a camera as if they’re facing a firing squad.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Today’s dentists offer many options for enhancing a smile, including whitening procedures, veneers, bonding, crowns, implants, and more. The expertise of general and family dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, and other specialists goes far beyond pain relief and cosmetic cures. The eyes may be the window to the soul, but the mouth tells a whole lot more about your general health. Not only can a good dentist spot early signs of oral cancer, but they can alert you to indications of diabetes, anemia, Crohn’s disease, and other medical conditions.

The following pages feature not just good dentists, but the very best our area has to offer. This exhaustive and carefully researched list was compiled by Professional Research Services (PRS). The firm conducts peer-review surveys of professionals to determine the Top Dentists in southeast Michigan. After all, who better to know who’s best than fellow dentists? Those who made the list have been carefully checked to ensure both the legitimacy of their licenses and their status with the Michigan State Dental Board and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

This rigorous peer review is, and always has been, the sole criteria for inclusion in Top Dentists. Inclusion cannot be bought, and advertising has no impact on the review process.

So, go ahead and beam. As Mother Teresa said: “We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.” On the other hand, you may relate more to W.C. Fields, who advised: “Start every day off with a smile and get it over with.”

Whichever philosophy you embrace, the following professionals have devoted their career to giving you the best possible dental care. That alone is reason to smile.
