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.

Go elsewhere, he is NOT worth you losing your ability to eat and drink because of his incompetence in dental care. I have seen two orthodontists since this doctor, plus plenty of specialists'. Dr. Connolly should have seen the damage he was doing to my teeth, instead, he ignored it. When I said I was happy and wanted my braces off, he refused because he was not happy. This is about *your* health, do not risk having to live on liquids for the rest of your life because your teeth are destroyed due to this Doctor's inability to do his job effectively.
