We were excited to be recognized for a third year in a row as one of the top dental offices in Carlsbad by San Diego Magazine. I can remember when I started to practice over thirty three years ago, there were only 16 dentists in Carlsbad. I started to count the number of dentists in Carlsbad today, and I gave up after 80. Where did they all come from? To be named as one of the top five dentists in Carlsbad is an honor: This is not one of those buy your award internet scams that some dentists use to get credibility (see Better Business Bureau warning). The top dentists were anonymously nominated by their fellow dentists based on the quality of their work and patient care. To see the criteria and methodology used go to San Diego Magazine. This is an honor earned by our whole office and reflects the dedication and skill of our whole team. I congratulate the other four dentists. I know them to be true professionals and assets to the dentistry and the community. I am happy to be associated with them. Of course recognition from a third party especially our demtal collegues is rewarding but the most meaningful recognition comes from but the kind words of our patients in reviews. We read every review and each one lifts our spirits and motivates us to be better. Thank you for your support.
