Top Dentist - 5280 Magazine
Dr. Thomas Stone has been recognized as a Top Dentist in Denver every year since 2008 by Denver's 5280 Magazine. Th Top Dentist list is compiled from the yearly topDentists database, which is created using peer evaluations and includes listings for more than 800 dentists and specialists in Colorado. To create its list, topDentists asked dentists and specialists a personal question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer him or her to?” Respondents were asked to consider experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and physical results. After the responses were compiled, dentists were checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have active licenses and are in good standing.
