MANCHESTER – New Hampshire Magazine shared 257 reasons to smile with the announcement of its 2017 Top Dentists. The list includes specialist and general dentistry practitioners from throughout the state. In celebration, New Hampshire Magazine hosted a reception to honor and recognize winners on Thursday, Aug. 17, at Manchester Country Club.

In its 14th year honoring New Hampshire dentists, New Hampshire Magazine commissioned professional polling firm, USA topDentists, to ask New Hampshire’s dental community to vote on the state’s top dental specialists. The 2017 list is based on thousands of detailed evaluations of dental professionals by their peers.

“We always enjoy this opportunity to showcase New Hampshire’s top dentists,” said Rick Broussard, editor of New Hampshire Magazine. “Dentistry plays such a vital role in maintaining our state’s good health and the best dental offices are active players in local community life.
