HOUR Detroit Top Dentist Award
This year, 2010, Dr. Nazarian earned recognition from his peers in the profession of dentistry.
The greater Detroit area award, which includes the city of Troy, is conducted through and published by HOUR Detroit Monthly Magazine on an annual basis.
Nationally recognized topDentists, LLC is the firm that conducts the survey and tabulates data collected from the Detroit Metro area dentists.
Award Survey Question
Each dentist is polled with the simple question:
“If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?”
Dentists and specialists are asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies and of course physical results.
Survey Sample Size
The nomination pool of dentists consists of all dentists listed online with the American Dental Association as well as all dentists listed online with their local dental societies in the metropolitan area, thus allowing virtually every dentist the opportunity to participate.
Dentists are also given the opportunity to nominate other dentists who we have missed that they feel should be included in our list. Respondents are asked to put aside any personal bias or political motivations and to use only their knowledge of their peer’s work when evaluating the other nominees.
Voters are asked to individually evaluate the practitioners on their ballot whose work they are familiar with. Once the balloting is completed, the scores are compiled and then averaged. The numerical average required for inclusion varies depending on the average for all the nominees within the specialty and the geographic area.
Voting characteristics and comments are taken into consideration while making decisions. Past awards a dentist has received, status in various dental academies (Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Periodontology, etc.) can play a factor in the final decisions.
Once the decisions have been finalized, the included dentists are checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have an active license and are in good standing with the board.
The awards of congratulatory letters and plaques are sent to all highest scoring nominees. The final tabulations are published annually in a special issue of HOUR Detroit magazine.
