    Customer Success Stories

  • “My brother was looking for a dentist in Philadelphia and asked me if I knew of anyone there. Being a dentist myself, I wanted to make sure that the person whom I refer him to is highly trained so that I can make sure he gets high quality dentistry. I did not want to rely on a dentist's personal website or other dental referral sources or magazines. Top3Dentists.com gave me the tools to find the right dentist for his specific needs. With my knowledge, it probably would have taken me days to possibly find the right dentist for him. Top3Dentists.com has done all the hard work for me. My brother is the happiest, since he received the best quality dentistry has to offer.”

    ~ Dr. D Alkasmi, San Diego
  • “I had my teeth done by a less qualified dentist about one year ago. And I have been unhappy with the way they look ever since. Later on, I found out that anyone dentist can call himself a cosmetic dentist with no training. Thanks to Top3Dentists.com I was able to find a dentist who was highly trained and qualified to give me the smile of my dreams. I could not have done this without the knowledge I got from this site.”

    ~ Joanne Townshend, New Jersey
  • “I was at the end of my ropes with my headaches. I had no idea where to go. My physicians kept changing my medications, the side effects were getting worse and worse. Top3Dentists.com educated me as to why I get the headaches. I also learned that I cannot rely on asking for referrals from my friends since they do not know how to evaluate a dentist's credentials either and I was able to find a qualified, well trained TMJ dentist. Thanks to Dr. J and Top 3 Dentists, I am pain free now.”

    ~ Joel, Minneapolis
