Philadelphia Magazine’s Top Dentists 2010: Methodology

How we compiled this list
We sent letters to every dentist in Philadelphia and the surrounding eight-county area, to the address on record, inviting them to nominate three peers for Top Dentist in each dental specialty via an online survey. Six hundred and fourteen took the survey. The resulting list of 20 dentists in each specialty with the most votes (including all those who were tied) was reviewed by an advisory board made up of 10 dentists in various specialties, chosen for their credentials and the high number of votes they received.
