Ken Iglehart - June 2012


NOTE: This is our 2012 Top Dentists feature. Our 2013 Top Dentists list is here.

It’s that time again, when we unveil the results of our annual Top Dentists survey, offering a handy resource to readers who want to do you-know-what: find a talented dentist they actually like. And, no, we didn’t throw dental picks at a dartboard to arrive at our list: We surveyed more than 2,000 dentists in Baltimore and the five surrounding counties over the course of several months to find out where they would send a member of their own family. Since most dentistry is local, we then divided the winners by location.* What else do you want to know about your D.D.S.? Well, when we did our survey of top physicians in November, we explored the hobbies and charitable causes that the M.D.s pursued in their spare time. The dentists, of course, were left wondering, “Hey, what are we, chopped liver?” So we did something similar for them, discovering off-hours callings that range from the noble to the nutty.

Our Advisors

Looking over our shoulders during this year’s Top Dentist survey process were a husband-and-wife team, oral surgeon Dr. John Emmett and pediatric dentist Dr. Margery Hernandez, both named Top Dentists by their peers in previous years. As advisors, they are not allowed on the list this year.

Dr. Emmett graduated from Randolph Macon College, completed a year of graduate studies at the College of William & Mary, and graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School in 1989. He practiced one year in a general practice residency with the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Washington, D.C., before training in oral and maxillofacial surgery for four years at the Georgetown University Medical Center. In 1994, Dr. Emmett established his practice at St. Joseph Medical Center.

Dr. Hernandez attended the University of Richmond on a tennis scholarship. She was recently inducted into the university’s Hall of Fame as the No. 1 player in 1982 when the team won the Women’s National Tennis Championship. She graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School. She served as a resident in pediatric dentistry at the Children’s National Medical Center, and practices at St. Joseph Medical Center.

Emmett and Hernandez have a son John, 17, and a daughter, Alexis, 15 (who are both nationally ranked golfers).
