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 went to my appointment today and left feeling less then pleased! First I'll start with the pros: -Nice office -Friendly staff EXCEPT 4 Makayla (will discuss in cons) -Prompt with appointment time -Dentist is very nice & explains everything well Cons: -Makayla-idk what her position there is but she came & discussed my treatment plan. She was VERY rude & it was quite obvious she doesn't like her job. She went over their recommended treatment (mind you I came in from another dentist so I alread

This dentist does not stand behind the substandard work his employees perform. I had a crown replaced on one of my front teeth and the color was too dark and didn't match my other teeth. When I brought it to their attention, they told me it was because the dentist used the wrong kind of post and that the only way to fix it was to replace the post and crown for another $ 1200.00!
