Seattle Met Magazine Top Dentists 2015 Selections for Bellevue Dentists


Dr Cynthia Pauley and Dr Brian Cave, a husband and wife dentistry team at Brookside Dental, Bellevue, Washington, have been selected Seattle Met Magazine Top Dentists for 2015 by a vote of dentists in the Seattle, WA, metropolitan region.  Inclusion in the Top Dentists list for 2015 by Seattle Met Magazine is the fifth year in a row that they have been honored for their outstanding dentistry work.  The Top Dentists selected listings are from four Washington State Counties: King, Snohomish, Pierce and Kitsap which surround the greater Seattle Area.  Dr Cindy and Dr Brian have their professional listings available in the Top Dentists section of the Seattle Met Magazine website at  with additional dentistry information available on the magazine website.  Additional information on the Seattle Met Magazine Website includes a variety of dentistry items such as the slide show from a previous party honoring the Top Dentists in Bellevue at Barrier Audi in Bellevue, WA.

Seattle Met Magazine Listings

Inclusion in the Seattle Met Top Dentists List is based on an extensive survey of dental professionals in both the general dentistry and specialty dentistry fields.  To create the Top Dentists 2015 list, Seattle Met Magazine sent ballots to all dentists listed online with the American Dental Association as well as other local dental societies in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce counties. These ballots asked dentists the question, “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?” Each general dentist and dental specialist was given the names of many nearby practitioners from which to select their choices for top dentists.  Additionally, they also had the opportunity to write in nominations of dentists they thought were worthy of selection but were not on the lists sent to them.  Each general dentist evaluated specialists and each specialist evaluated general dentists whose work she or he was familiar with based on years of experience, continuing education, chair-side manner with patients, use of modern and new techniques and technologies, and of course the physical dentistry results and appearances. The reason for this method of voting is that dental specialists usually see the work of many general dentists that refer patients to them for specialty dental treatment.  Alternately, general dentists will evaluate the work of various dental specialists as they decide which of these doctors are going to provide the best dentistry care for their patients in the various specialty disciplines. Therefore both groups are able to comparatively evaluate members of the other group.

Dentists with the highest average ratings were vetted for active licenses and good standing with the Washington State Department of Health before being selected and placed on the final selection list as a Top Dentist. The listings of the Top Dentists in the Seattle Region were published in the January 2015 issue of the Seattle Met Magazine.  It is considered a very significant honor to be named to this exclusive Top Dentist list, because listings cannot be purchased and no inclusion fee is required for listing.

Both dentists, Dr Cindy Pauley and Dr Brian Cave were previously selected to the Seattle Met Magazine 2012 Top Dentists List and the Seattle Met Magazine Top Dentists 2013 List in addition to the 2014 Top Dentist List .

Dr Pauley previously was selected by her peers for the Seattle Met Magazine Top Dentist List in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 for both General Dentist and Cosmetic Dentist categories.  Dr Cave was selected by his peers for the Seattle Met Magazine Top Dentist List for 2012, 2013 and 2014 in the General Dentist and Cosmetic Dentist categories.  Both of the selections for the 2015 Top Dentist List (  for the two dentists was in both the General Dentist and Cosmetic Dentist categories based upon the excellent quality of dentistry that these two dentists provide for their patients.  Dr Cynthia Pauley and Dr Brian Cave are passionate about designing beautiful smiles using state of the art modern cosmetic dentistry techniques as well as providing excellent preventative and restorative dentistry for the entire family.
