ew Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees befor...

Sports talk-radio hosts love to get audiences engaged by asking who is “the best” in a particular sport.  During football season the debate usually centers around the “best quarterback.”  We all have our opinions, and we can do it on a seasonal basis or even look at it from a historical perspective.

This year the candidates seem to be Aaron Rogers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees,Ben Rothlisberger, Eli Manning and Tim Tebow (Yes, his name has been coming up a lot lately).  What I find interesting is not who is the best, but what the criteria are for being the best.  The Aaron Roger’s  and Drew Brees’ fans will cite statistics, but there are other factors...X Factors if you will.  That is where Manning and Tebow fit in.

It’s the criteria that interest me.  So I would like to hear from you regarding who you think is the World’s Best Dentist…and WHY?

In other words, what do dentists consider the most important traits that would contribute to being world-class.

Is it purely technical skills?  Is it the ability to teach?  Is it related to ethics? to business?  or both?

I am looking for your opinion.  You can mention anyone in the world…but please explain “why?”  If you want to mention a local dentist, that’s okay too…just don’t put yourself down.  If you want to give your opinion on the quarterback debate…go ahead.

Here’s my response—

Eli Manning – Super Bowl MVP…The X-Factor— he has ice running through his veins.  He never feels pressure.

My dentist…World’s Greatest—Let’s hear your votes first.  You can probably guess mine.

I probably think who’s the best among them but I really adore my professor who taughtme a lot about dentistry, not because of his beautiful smile but also she’s got all that it takes to be the best dentist! Patience, expertise and attitude.
