Dr. Neil Salesky is proud to be named one of Connecticut Magazine’s top dentists of 2020. Out of over 3,000 dental professionals, the list features 411 of the state’s best dentists across seven specialties, as chosen by their peers.
What’s The List, And How Were The Dentists Chosen?
The list of top dentists was featured in the July 2020 issue of Connecticut Magazine, and the results came from their annual poll of dental professionals. The magazine reached out to all of Connecticut’s licensed dentists, sending them a questionnaire that asked them to name the dentists they would receive treatment from themselves, and who they would recommend to their own family members. The dentists were allowed to nominate their peers from the field’s most prominent specialties, including general dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, and prosthodontics.
What Makes Dr. Salesky A Top Dentist?
Dr. Neil Salesky’s dedication to his craft, his patients, and his community is what really makes him stand out among his peers. At Southington Dentistry, he has made sure that the comfort and safety of his patients are at the top of the priority list. In fact, he specializes in treating those with dental phobia, making them comfortable enough to forget their bad experiences or fear of the dentist’s chair. There’s nothing he likes more than hearing a patient who was nervous at first say, “That wasn’t so bad!” after their treatment.
Outside of the office, Dr. Salesky keeps himself busy by giving his time to others. On more than one occasion, he has been a part of mission trips to South America, where he has provided treatment to indiginous patients who are otherwise unable to access dental care. He also mentors UConn dental students, providing guidance for the next generation of dentists. In addition to his commitment to people, he’s also a lover of animals. Because of this, he donates 10% of his dental hygiene profits to local animal rescue groups.
For Dr. Salesky, it’s about making people smile, whether that’s through dentistry, community service, and sometimes, a little bit of both.
Commitment To Patient Safety In Unprecedented Times
Dr. Salesky and the rest of the Southington Dentistry team have truly gone above and beyond this year, as dentists everywhere have had to jump to make changes to fight the COVID-19 virus. For the health of our patients, we have remained at the forefront of sanitation practices, ready to do whatever it takes to provide the dental treatment our community deserves, so they can get the care they need, safely.
In a continued effort to keep our environment clean and virus-free, we have installed state-of-the-art air purification and aerosol removal systems at our Plantsville office. The combination of these systems purify and re-energize the air six times an hour. This sophisticated technology traps and removes 99.998% of particles at a size of 0.1 microns. For some context, the virus that causes COVID-19 is about 0.12 microns, making it large enough to be filtered out by our purifying systems.
For us, investing in the latest technology is an investment in our patients, so when they visit Southington Dentistry, they can do so without worry, like a breath of fresh air. That’s just one of the things that makes Dr. Salesky a Top Dentist of 2020.
