First Impressions named Best Pediatric Dentistry Practice

First Impressions Best Pediatric Dentistry-Practice

Big news! Wisconsin’s very own First Impressions S.C. has been named the Best Pediatric Dentistry Practice 2018 — Midwest USA by Global Health & Pharma (GHP) magazine. GHP announced this distinction as part of their Oral Health & Dentistry Awards.

First Impressions has three locations in the Fox Valley area, including Appleton, Bellevue, and Suamico.

In order to be considered for the award, they provided written responses to several questions about their pediatric dentistry practice, the industry, trends and challenges, and what makes them different.

GHP selects winners based on merit, including those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work. “The aim is showcasing the achievements of enterprises associated with this vital sector to global health,” says Edward Faulkner, Awards Coordinator for GHP.

What makes First Impressions different?

Dr. Tom Turner discusses what sets First Impressions apart. He explains, “Everything was designed to make going to the dentist an anxiety-free experience – from our brightly-colored walls to the child-sized furniture. As pediatric dentists, we have received advanced training in managing pediatric oral conditions, in addition to the behavior, growth, and development of children.” He adds, “Our entire office is committed to providing the best care possible for our patients.”

Turner explains that their expertise is on-going. “All of our dentists are dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of accreditation and remain up-to-date in our fields by frequently attending courses and lectures on a variety of topics. We have presented locally as well as internationally.”

Other accolades

First Impressions is no stranger to awards. In 2013, they received the Northwoods Hero Award. Four of their partners were named Wisconsin Small Business Person of the Year in 2012, including Turner, Dr. Corey Brimacombe, and Dr. Josh Spiegl. Turner was named America’s Top Dentist in 2007.
