Best Dentist
In Florida

Here is a list of the best dentists in Florida, based on patient reviews, awards, and professional recognition: This list is not based on advertising or payment. Dentists cannot 'buy' their way onto my list.

These are dentists that I have become familiar with over the last 40 years, either by personal interaction, online, at Continuing Education courses, or by reputation.

They all have exceptional skills, and are experts in one or more fields. I would trust these dentists to work in my mouth without hesitation!

This list is not comprehensive, and I will be adding to it regularly.
