This list is excerpted from the 2013 topDentists™ list, a database which includes listings of 72 dentists and specialists in The Dayton area. The dentists profiled were chosen from this list. The Dayton area list is based on thousands of detailed evaluations of dentists and professionals by their peers. The complete database is available at www.usatopdentists.com. For more information call 706-364-0853; write PO Box 970, Augusta, GA 30903; email info@usatopdentists.com or visit www.usatopdentists.com. 

SELECTION PROCESS

“If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?” This is the question we’ve asked thousands of dentists to help us determine who the topDentists should be. Dentists and specialists are asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques, and technologies and of course physical results.

The nomination pool of dentists consists of dentists listed online with the American Dental Association as well as all dentists listed online with their local/regional dental societies, thus allowing virtually every dentist the opportunity to participate. Dentists are also given the opportunity to nominate other dentists who we have missed that they feel should be included in our list. Respondents are asked to put aside any personal bias or political motivations and to use only their knowledge of their peer’s work when evaluating the other nominees.

Voters are asked to individually evaluate the practitioners on their ballot whose work they are familiar with. Once the balloting is completed, the scores are compiled and then averaged. The numerical average required for inclusion varies depending on the average for all the nominees within the specialty and the geographic area. Borderline cases are given a careful consideration by the editors. Voting characteristics and comments are taken into consideration while making decisions. Past awards a dentist has received and status in various dental academies can play a factor in our decision.

Once the decisions have been finalized, the included dentists are checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have an active license and are in good standing with the board. Then letters of congratulations are sent to all the listed dentists.

Of course there are many fine dentists who are not included in this representative list. It is intended as a sampling of the great body of talent in the field of dentistry in Ohio. A dentist’s inclusion on our list is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow dentists. While it is true that the lists may at times disproportionately reward visibility or popularity, we remain confident that our polling methodology largely corrects for any biases and that these lists continue to represent the most reliable, accurate, and useful list of dentists available anywhere.

Dr. Jeffrey Kleinman
Dixie Dental & Denture Center

For 38 years, Dr. Jeffrey Kleinman has experienced the evolution of dentistry. From the archaic use of mold impressions to digital scanning, his profession continues to transform.

“The future is going toward implants and replacements, so the trend is basically going toward screw in teeth,” says Kleinman, who practices his dentistry at Dixie Dental and Denture Center.

The advancements in the field have paralleled
Kleinman's career path.

After graduating from Miami University in Oxford with a major in chemistry and a minor in zoology, the 62-year-old specialist started looking at medical and dental schools.

“I knew there wasn’t as much opportunity in my undergraduate degree as in the medical field,” he says. “I was always good in the sciences so I wanted to stay in that area.”

Before medical schools could respond to his application, Kleinman opted for The Ohio State University College of Dentistry.

After completing dentistry school in 1976, he began exploring oral surgery. But rather than wait for three years to start school, Kleinman decided to kickoff his dental career and moved to Dayton in 1977. He bought into a practice with several other dentists who worked at 17 other offices. In 1993, he took over the whole practice and gave up the other offices. Sine then he’s increased his dental office from six rooms to 21 and added eight other dentists.

A. Reza Miremadi, DDS, MD
Center for Facial & Oral Surgery

For more than 10 years, Dr. A. Reza Miremadi has put smiles on his patients’ faces through his practice, the Center for Facial and Oral Surgery.

“I wanted to do reconstructive surgery, … help people feel better about themselves and have better functionality,” says Miremadi. “In terms of bites, chew better, eat better, and smile better. It restores the health throughout because you get better nutrition.”

Miremadi, who was born in Iran and grew up in Geneva, Switzerland, is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, the only MD and DDS in the Miami Valley.

At his practice, he and his experienced staff can do reconstructive procedures, wisdom teeth, dental implants and bone grafts.

“We can actually grow bone in the jaw. We don’t have to take bone from other places as much anymore,” he says.

If a patient has lost teeth, dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. Miremadi will do the implants, and after the procedure the only thing a patient needs to do is general teeth maintenance, such as regular cleaning.

At the Center, Dr. Miremadi also conducts reconstructive procedures, such as jaw deformity or damage from trauma, with cutting-edge 3-D imaging technology. “You recognize right off the bat what you need to do,” he says. “You can predict the surgery more precisely and it helps reduce surgical time.”

Miremadi is also on staff at Miami Valley Hospital, where he takes care of patients with severe facial trauma, as well as a clinical assistant professor in the department of Plastic Surgery at Wright State University. Dr. Miremadi completed his DDS and MD at Columbia University.
