At the four gorgeous, functional dental practice designs that today earn national recognition in the 2022 Incisal Edge Design Competition (shown), beauty and medical excellence align like a perfect smile. These dental practices in California, Illinois and North Carolina, and the doctors who have brought them to vivid life, receive prestigious awards for dental practice design from the nation’s premier dental magazine published by Benco Dental.
Annually, independent juried panelists for the Incisal Edge Design Competition perform a comprehensive review of photos and floor plans to determine which nominees from across the U.S. will earn national recognition for dental practice design. The criteria: attaining a balance of design, operation, and technology. This year’s competition, presented by Benco Dental, took place from August through November, 2021, and today, the magazine announces its 2022 winners and in three categories.
