Sea Girt, NJ – The New Jersey Monthly magazine has unveiled its 2012 list of Top Dentists from across the state. Once again, Dr. Patrick T. Cuozzo has been selected by his peers to join the list as one of the premier orthodontic specialists in New Jersey. Based off a statewide dentist survey and professional advisory board review, only 364 out of more than 6,000 eligible dentists were chosen. Dr. Cuozzo says he is honored to be considered among the elite by his fellow professionals, and he thanks them for their support. He adds that it is his goal to provide the highest quality care to his patients, and he is grateful to be recognized for his efforts.
As an experienced orthodontist in New Jersey, Dr. Cuozzo leads a highly trained staff dedicated to providing the community with a comprehensive range of treatments and procedures. From traditional braces and Invisalign®, to lingual braces and appliances, Cuozzo Orthodontic Specialists focuses on the treatment of both children and adults. Because he has two practice locations, Dr. Cuozzo is able to extend top-level care to a greater portion of the state. He says he hopes his inclusion on the NJ Monthly’s list will enlighten the public about his practice, as well as strengthen the confidence his patients already have in his abilities and expertise. Additionally, he says that as a Top Dentist it is particularly important to continue his devotion to optimizing patient care using the most advanced orthodontic techniques available.
Selected for his dedication to child and adult orthodontics in New Jersey, Dr. Cuozzo joins 363 others in the magazine’s 2012 Top Dentist list. Last December, 6,426 NJ-licensed dentists from all over the state received an independent questionnaire in the mail on which they could voice their nominations. Measures such as unique ballot codes and dental license numbers were taken to prevent any duplication. From the 1,442 accepted ballots, votes were tallied and used to form a preliminary list that was eventually sent to a dentist-nominated professional review board for final approval. Dentists are not notified until after the list is finalized so that no advertising or campaigning occurs. Dr. Cuozzo says he looks forward to seeing what opportunities this recognition might bring, and he is excited to use it as motivation to consistently better himself as an orthodontist.
As a multi-year Top Dentist, Dr. Cuozzo says to remain at the top of his profession is a constant job, and he intends to do everything he can to continuously improve his practice. He adds that in the end, whether patients are looking for braces in New Jersey, or any other orthodontic care, it is important to always consult with a board-certified orthodontist no matter how many awards or recognitions someone may have received. He says a board-certified orthodontist ensures experience, along with the safest, most high quality procedures available.
