Honors: Christine Ancajas, Edward Herschaft, William Leavitt, Ronald Lemon, Robert Lockhart, James Mah, George McAlpine, Daniel Orr, Victoria Woo, and Wendy Woodall

Drs. Christine Ancajas, Edward Herschaft, William Leavitt, Ronald Lemon, Robert Lockhart, James Mah, George McAlpine, Daniel Orr II, Victoria Woo, and Wendy Woodall (all Dental) have all been named by Desert Companion magazine to its “Top Dentists 2018” list. Also listed by the magazine were eight part-time instructors and five volunteers. This list is excerpted from the 2018 topDentists list, which includes listings for more than 160 dentists and specialists in Southern Nevada. According to the publication, identifying the top dental talent began with a simple question posed to the local dental community: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?” Respondents were asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and physical results.
