Beverly Hills, CA (PressExposure) January 23, 2009 -- The difficulty of finding a dentist one trusts can be a deterrent to following through with good oral hygiene, including regular cleanings and examinations. To simplify the job for consumers, the Consumers' Research Council of America (CRC) compiles a list of the top dentists practicing in the United States. The 2009 list will include Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist and periodontist Dr. Alex Farnoosh, founder of The Total Smile dental office.
The CRC uses a point system to identify the dentists who will be included in each year's list. Points were awarded to each dentist based on four factors: number of years experience in dentistry, dedication to continuing education and previous education, board certifications recognized by the ADA, and membership in professional dental associations. Dr. Farnoosh was also honored by the CRC in 2007 and 2008.
The Consumers' Research Council of America, is the publisher of the Guide to America's Top Dentists. The CRC also generates a number of similar guides for other professions. The CRC is based in Washington, D. C. and is dedicated to educating consumers. The organization does not accept any donations or fees from advertisers or professional corporations. This ensures their results are unbiased and of the greatest value for consumers.
Dr. Farnoosh has been in private dental practice for over 25 years. He has also taught at the University of Southern California since 1981. Dr. Farnoosh earned his M.S. degree and Periodontology certification in 1974 from the University of Iowa and completed a Ph.D from the same university in 1978.

Additionally, Dr. Farnoosh is a diplomate with the American Board of Periodontology.
