Good Dentists

Hi Doc

I have a rather silly question but I' m looking for a good dentist. My current dentist is really good but rather " old school"  , he fixes teeth making them durable but not cosmetically appealing...i.e. even for small fillings at the back of my teeth he wanted to use amalgam fillings unless I told him to or he would blend the colour of the filling in my front tooth in one area but leave the filling stick out on the other side making the tooth surface uneven. That' s why I' m on a mission to find a good dentist that can fix up my front teeth nicely as I' m getting small cavities by the gums in my front teeth because my enamel is too thin there. Is there a place where good dentists advertise themselves?

I think it is best to ask your circle of friends for someone they recommend. "good" is in many cases a matter of opinion.
