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.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Gil Dechavez, DDS?
Dr. Dechavez is very pleasant and took his time attending to my needs. He reviewed the x-ray that I brought with me from another dentist's office but needed to take some more for clearer understanding of my problem. He took the time to explain to my my options and what was his professional opinion. Unfortunately, I need to see a specialist for a difficult root canal but I would recommend Dr. Dechavez.
