By Christopher K. BreslinPublished September 13, 2018 10:21:37Dentistry in the United States is a tough sell, and that’s a good thing.
But if you want a newbie dentist to keep your teeth looking great and prevent cavities, the best dentists in Austin have a lot to offer.
With a booming dentistry market, dentists from around the world have started to take on the mantle of the best in the state, so to speak.
That means the top 10 dentists of 2018 may not be as familiar to some, but they have plenty to offer, according to a new report from the American Dental Association.
The top 10 Dentists in TexasThe top dentist in Austin is a bit of a mouthful, but it’s worth it.
The Austin-based Dental Foundation of America, a nonprofit organization, ranks the top-ranked dentists and dental professionals in Texas.
The foundation is funded by the Dental Associations of America (DAAA), a nonprofit group dedicated to educating and supporting dentists.
The organization provides a directory of the state’s top dentists, as well as information on their services.
The Austin-area dental profession is filled with top dentistry graduates who are already well established in their professions.
Many of them are also top executives in their fields, according a survey by the association.
And while their dentistry credentials are impressive, they still don’t have a monopoly on top-tier service.
The dental foundation ranks the best dental practices in the Lone Star State in five categories: patient care, community service, quality of life, patient safety, and innovation.
For this list, we used Dental Institute of Texas data to determine which dentists have the best clinical, patient, and professional relationships.
The survey also looked at whether the practices were located in Austin, Austin-Round Rock, or Austin.
In Austin, those two communities account for roughly a quarter of the dentists practicing there.
The rest of the top dentist lists were based on the survey results, with the average rank for the top three in each community.
