Choosing the Top Dentists

PHOENIX magazine generates its Top Dentists list via an online survey of practicing dentists in Greater Phoenix. Using contact information obtained from the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners, the magazine mails postcards to the full population of dentists practicing in the Valley in the early spring, directing them to our online voting portal. The survey asks respondents to provide the names of three dentists whom they deem the best in each of nine specialties. At the conclusion of voting, we digitally tally the votes in each category. Once the top vote-getters are determined, our fact-checkers verify their information.
