Smile! The Greater Philadelphia Area boasts some of the country’s finest dental health professionals

by Staff

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” So said a man named Thich Nhat Hanh, a global spiritual leader and Zen master who knows a thing or two about happiness. His words certainly apply to the smiles in the Greater Philadelphia Area, which boasts some truly excellent dentists, orthodontists and oral surgeons, among other dental professionals. To find out who they are, we went right to the source—our readers. Over the course of several months, we asked readers to go to our website and vote for the area’s leading dental health professionals. On the following pages you’ll find the results, arranged by area of specialty. One point worth noting: Our 2016 Top Dentists list does feature a number of advertisers, though advertising was not a factor in compiling the list. 

From relieving the pain of a toothache to providing a total mouth restoration, these men and women have devoted their careers to making patients’ pearly whites not a source of concern but—as Thich Nhat Hanh suggests—a source of joy.
