Learn about more about your dentist from their "badges"
We assign badges to make it easier to identify each dentist's strengths. Skills badges tell you about the dentist's strengths when it comes to different dental procedures. Other badges tell you if the dentist offers great prices, if they accept insurance, and other important criteria. You can find dentist badges at the top of their Even28 profile in the basic info section.
What are the different badges?
The example above is a sample of what your typical dentist badges look like. Here's a complete list of the different badges which you might come across:
Skills badges - Skills badges help you identify each dentist's clinical strengths. We assign skills badges based on the dentist's photo galleries, online store performance, training, awards, and other important criteria. Examples of skills badges include:
- Porcelain Veneers & Cosmetics
- Clear Aligners & Invisalign®
- Oral Surgery & Dental Implants
- TMJ treatment
and so forth...
Established Badge - We assign this badge to dentists who have been serving the same community for a long time. Use the established badge to look for a dentist who's stuck around the block for a while.
Scholar Badge - This badge is assigned to doctors who have lots of post-dental school education and training. Use the scholar badge to find a dentist with extensive training in their respective field.
Price Badge - This is a very useful badge for cash patients. We look for doctors who offer competitive prices on their Even28 online store. Use the price badge to locate an affordable dentist in your area.
Insurance Badge - We assign this badge to doctors who participate with dental insurance. The more insurance the dentist accepts, the better their insurance badge ranking. Use the insurance badge to locate dentists who are more likely to accept your insurance plan.
Bronze, silver & gold badges
As you'd imagine, there are 3 different types of badges, which are:
Gold badge: Gold badges are assigned to the best doctors who ace each category
Silver badge: Silver badges are assigned to exemplary dentists who are just a bit behind the gold dentists
Bronze badge: Bronze badges are offered to great dentists who are working their way up to silver or gold status
What do different dentist badges mean?
Let's look at a few examples to see how gold, silver, and bronze badges are assigned:
"Porcelain Veneers & Cosmetics" Badge
A gold badge means the doctor has performed thousands of cosmetic treatments, posted hundreds of photos to their Even28 profile, and is a perfect choice for cosmetic dentistry treatment. A silver badge means that the doctor has performed hundreds of cosmetic procedures and posted dozens of treatment photos and is a great choice for cosmetic treatment. A bronze badge means the doctor has performed a handful of porcelain veneer cases and is an above-average choice for cosmetic dentistry treatment.
A gold badge means the dentist has been practicing in the same community for decades. A bronze badge means the dentist has been there for 5 to 10 years. No badge means the dentist is new to the community.
A gold badge means the dentist has extensive training and experience in their field. A bronze badge means the dentist has some training and experience, but not as much as a gold dentist.
A gold badge means the dentist offers the best prices in the area (as compared to neighboring dentists). A bronze badge means the dentist has prices that are slightly lower than neighboring dentists, but not by much.
A gold badge means the dentist accepts most insurance plans, including PPOs, most HMOs, and government plans. A bronze dentist only accepts a few PPO plans and does not participate with much else. No badge means the dentist does not participate with any dental insurance.
