PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) March 16, 2020
Every year, Philadelphia Magazine issues an award to the top dental professional in the area for outstanding quality of care. This year, the magazine named local practitioner, Dr. I. Stephen Brown "Top Dentist in the Field of Periodontics," which is now the eleventh year in a row that he has received this accolade.
No popularity contest, Philadelphia Magazine uses a robust process for determining those it names as top-raking professionals in the field of dentistry. First, it polls dentists in the city of Philadelphia and seven surrounding counties for nominations. It then asks them to vote on whom they think are the most respected practitioners currently operating in the region. After collecting the results, the magazine sends a shortlist of names to a panel of distinguished dental professionals from the local area who then use their expertise to make the final adjudication.
Dr. Brown’s success in 2020 is not only a reflection of his skills as a periodontist, but also his role as a leading opinion-maker and educator in the dental community. Professionals from across the area hold him in high regard because of his contributions to the field, which include sponsorship of a variety of ongoing educational programs, his role as the Director of The Albert Einstein Dental Implant Center, and his teaching roles at Temple Dental School and the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
Those who know Dr. Brown celebrate him as an innovator. He was, for instance, the first practitioner in the area to be trained to use the minimally-invasive LANAP procedure, a technique designed to help reduce the symptoms of gum disease. He is also one of the few periodontists in Philadelphia to use phase-contrast microscope technology to identify bacterial risk markers associated with periodontal disease.
Dr. Brown’s 2020 Philadelphia Magazine Top Dentist Award is a reflection of his prominence across the dental world, as well as an indication of the impact he has had on his community. He is intensely concerned about the quality of patient care, and has pioneered a range of novel scanning techniques, including dental implant CT imaging, which reduces radiation exposure.
This latest achievement of Dr. Brown signals a man at the top of his professions, continuing to provide significant value to the community he serves. This year, the competition from aspiring dentists in the Philadelphia area was intense, which underscores the esteem in which Dr. Brown is held by his peers, and cements him as one of the most celebrated oral health practitioners in the metropolitan area.
For those considering periodontal care, Dr. Brown is clearly a leader in the field, as judged by a panel of his peers. He uses the very latest techniques to enhance the quality of the patient experience, while also reducing the risk that people face every time they visit their dentist. Dr. Brown is currently accepting new patients and enjoys getting to know all those patients who come to see him because of his expertise, skill and judgment.
