Tyler Texas Dentist, Dr. Burnett was honored by his peers as a “Super Dentist” in the state of Texas for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016!  That’s seven years running!

Super Dentists identifies top dentists utilizing the independent research of Key Professional Media.  They employ a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify dentists who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  The process first starts with surveying the dentists.

Dentist Survey for Texas Super Dentists

Each year Key Professional Media sends out thousands of ballots to dentists asking them to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field.  Dentists are asked to consider the following question:  “If you needed care in one of the following specialties, which dentist would you choose?”   Numerous safeguards are in place to prevent ballot manipulation, and dentists may not self-nominate.

Candidate Search

Key Media’s research staff also contributes to the pool of candidates by searching medical databases, online sources, and publications for dentists who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements—what they term “Star Search Credentials”.


Next, each nominee in the candidate pool is evaluated by our research staff, using a set of ten established indicators with varying point values.  Dentists are evaluated on the following indicators:

– Years of experience
– Fellowships
– Professional Activities
– Leadership Positions
– Academic Achievements/ Positions
– Board Certifications
– Publications, lectures, and presentations
– Honors and Awards
– Other Outstanding Achievement

Blue Ribbon Panel Review

Nominees are then grouped into specialties.  Dentists in each area, who have the highest scores from the nomination and evaluation steps are invited to serve on a “blue ribbon panel.”  Each panelist is asked to review and evaluate a list of nominees from his/her area of focus.

The Final Selection

The last step is to total the points received from nominations, research, and blue ribbon panel review.  Only the highest-scoring doctors are included on the Super Dentists list.  The Super Dentists list is limited to 5% of the dentists within the respective state or region.
