Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2014
Dr. Michael Shenk was recently featured in Atlanta Magazine for his selection as the 2014 Five Star Dentist in Atlanta, GA, a prestigious professional honor bestowed on fewer than nine percent of dentists in Atlanta.
The Five Star Professional award program conducts market-specific research in order to identify talented, reputable, and trustworthy service providers in over 40 major markets across the United States and Canada. The annual award winning lists are then published in the market’s leading regional magazine or business publication as well as on fivestarprofessional.com. This marks the first year that Atlanta Magazine has partnered with Five Star Professional to recognize Atlanta-area dentists who have been nominated by their patients and peers.
To receive the Five Star Dentist Award, a dentist must satisfy nine objective eligibility and evaluation criteria associated with dentists who provide quality dental care services. The Five Star program does not accept self-nominations, so candidacy for the Five Star Dentist Award is determined by the dentist’s peers and patients. To attain this data, Five Star Professional administers individualized peer surveys via US mail within targeted geographic areas; patient nominations are solicited in surveys provided to the subscribers of the participating regional magazine.
Five Star Dentist Award nominees are assessed on several criteria, such as their annual number of active patients, one-year and three-year patient retention rates, and various professional accomplishments. Educational and professional achievements considered in the selection process include post-degree and advanced training, academic positions, fellowships, and board certifications as well as publications, presentations, and lectures.
Dr. Shenk has exhibited his commitment to providing exceptional dental care throughout his career by undergoing advanced training and other continuing education endeavors. Both he and his son and partner, Dr. Judd Shenk, are certified to perform the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), a minimally invasive gum disease treatment alternative that employs sophisticated laser technology to remove periodontal infection without incisions or stiches. Dr. Shenk’s professional drive and ongoing efforts to stay abreast of the latest advancements in dental technology and techniques stems from his desire to provide a better experience for patients at Shenk Dental Care. By investing in digital technology advanced training, Dr. Shenk is able to restore patients’ confidence in their smiles and achieve superior results with minimal discomfort and inconvenience.
