How We Chose Our Dentists:
We sent letters to the address on record for every licensed dentist in Boston and the surrounding region roughly within I-495’s boundaries, inviting them to nominate up to three of their peers in a select number of dental specialties via an online survey. More than 600 dentists took the survey, amounting to 4,200-plus votes. The top vote-getters in each specialty were then reviewed by an advisory board of select dentists, chosen for their credentials and the high number of votes they received.
