TopDentists™ in the Midlands




Once again, Columbia Metropolitan Magazine is honored to present the Midlands dentists named to the 2012 topDentists™ list. This list is provided to us exclusively from topDentists, LLC, an Augusta, Ga. company with more than 40 years of experience compiling peer-reviewed guides in the legal, dental and medical fields.

“If you had a patient in need of a dentist, to which dentist would you refer them?” This is the question topDentists asked thousands of dentists to help determine who the topDentists should be. Dentists and specialists are asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies and, of course, physical results.

The nomination pool of dentists consists of dentists listed online with the American Dental Association, as well as all dentists listed online with their local dental societies. Dentists are also given the opportunity to nominate other dentists who they feel should be included in this list. Respondents are asked to put aside any personal bias or political motivations and to use only their knowledge of their peers’ work when evaluating the other nominees.

Once the balloting is completed, the scores are compiled and then averaged. After the decisions have been finalized, the included dentists are checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have active licenses and are in good standing with the board.

Of course there are many fine dentists who are not included in this representative list. It is intended as a sampling of the great body of talent in the field of dentistry in the Midlands. While it is true that the lists may at times disproportionately reward visibility or popularity, topDentists remains confident that its lists continue to represent the most reliable, accurate and useful list of dentists available anywhere.

The following list is excerpted from the 2012 topDentists list, a database which includes listings for more than 100 dentists and specialists in the Columbia and Midlands areas of South Carolina. No one pays Columbia Metropolitan or topDentists to be included. In fact, because dentists must be voted on strictly by their peers and virtually every dentist is given an opportunity to particpate, inclusion in topDentists is considered to be a distinct honor.

After the list, there is a special advertising section, where some of the dentists named to the list have provided more information about themselves and their practices. We hope this information is helpful when searching for dentists and practices to fill all dental needs.
