Best of the Peninsula 2016

Best of the Peninsula

twenty-first anniversary

For the 21st consecutive year, the advertising department of

Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum is proud to present the readers’ choices for the best eateries, shops and services on the North Olympic Peninsula. Readers responded to an online promotional survey choosing the places where they go for both business and pleasure. Unscientific in nature, the survey is designed to be fun and give readers a chance to cite the local businesses they deem to be the best on the Peninsula. This year’s winners again demonstrate a common theme that contributes to their success; the winning businesses have distinctive personalities and offer products and services that set them apart from the rest. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists. And thanks to all our readers who participated in the survey!

The Doctors and Staff at Irwin Dental Center would like to thank you for selecting us as your #1 Dental Team for 2016! 1st Place Todd Irwin Best Dentist Clallam Co

681657809

We’re humbled by the vote of confidence and thank you for letting us care for you and your families dental health. We wouldn’t be the best without you!
