Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I highly recommend Dr. Artashes Avakian!! If you have a phobia of going to the dentist he is the dentist to go to! I had a horrible dental experience as a teenager and developed a strong phobia of dentists. Dr. Avakian and his assistants cured me of that with their knowledge, kindness, caring, gentleness and almost pain-free dental treatment. I would never go anywhere else!! Thank you Dr. Avakian!!
