Our exclusive listing of the most-recommended dentists in Sarasota and Manatee.

Medical professionals agree that good dental health is an essential part of your overall well-being. In order to help you make informed choices, we've partnered with topDentists to publish this list of the very best dentists in Sarasota and Manatee counties. They were selected for inclusion in the prestigious topDentists database by their peers, who were asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and, of course, physical results.

topDentists has more than 40 years in combined experience compiling peer-review referral guides in the legal, dental and medical fields. Using this experience along with the input of several prominent dentists in the United States, they have created a selection process that has been refined and improved over previous superlative guides. Because dentists must be voted in strictly by their peers, virtually every dentist is given an opportunity to participate, and listings cannot be purchased (and no payment is required to be listed), inclusion in topDentists is considered to be a distinct honor.
