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.

Best Dentist EVER! I love this office. Great employees. Dr. McCracken knows the latest technology. His office has the best hygienists. Don't go to a dental chain that advertises on the television. I live one hour away from this office and it is always worth the trip. Dr. McCracken pays attention to every little detail and uses the best and latest technology available. I wish I had known him when i was younger. My teeth and gums would be in much better shape. Still, I am glad I found this dentist when i did. He stopped the degeneration of my teeth and gums.

Dr. McCracken and his staff are superb. Not only do they exhibit a caring attitude but they work with the patient to make the patient feel important. They educate the patient but never manipulate him or her. After having another dentist in a nearby community try to bait and switch me, it is very reassuring to have a dentist who is honest and upright.
