NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- While snakes, spiders and heights are considered among the most common fears in America, dental phobia also breeds high anxiety for many; therefore, Top Dentists (www.TopDentists.com) – the leading authority for comprehensive dentistry information and the best local providers -- aims to take the fear out of going to the dentist. Everyday Health's Top Dentists has launched its "America's Top Dentists" survey in which dental professionals, including general dentists, orthodontists, prosthodontists, periodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons, can be nominated by peers and patients. By year end, Top Dentists will release the survey results naming one dentist from each of the top 100 U.S. designated market areas (DMAs) as a "Top Dentist." The survey, tabulated by an independent, third-party research company, is open through the end of September at http://betasurvey.com/TopDentists/C3/ and more information about the survey can be found at www.topdentists.com/americas-top-dentists.
"America's Top Dentist" winners will be announced later this year by Top Dentists.Each of America's Top Dentist will be highlighted in an editorial feature, and receive a prize package valued at $10,000 including an office plaque, website badges as well as prominent winners' profile features on the site.
"With the belief that everyone deserves the very best in dental care, Top Dentists strives to make the often stressful experience of selecting a new dental professional a more pleasant one by highlighting the outstanding work of America's top 100 dentists and inspiring all dental patients to seek out their services and expertise," said David Siegel, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Everyday Health, Local Division.
Top Dentists helps patients navigate the often tricky path to not only finding the best dental professional – whether a general, cosmetic, oral surgeon – based on references, credentials, background, patient feedback, and chair-side manner but also to understanding general dental information. In addition to gaining a wealth of knowledge from the Dental FAQ, TopDentists.com visitors can browse an expansive library of dental articles about the diagnosis and treatment of popular dental procedures, common conditions, specialties and general health. The Dentist Finder, a worldwide dentist directory featuring highly trained professionals searchable by city or ZIP Code, then allows patients to contact their preferred professionals directly by email ensuring a prompt and personal reply.
