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. John Kempton, DDS?
I've had six dentists in my life and by far, Dr. Kempton has been the best. He is very patient, explains in terms that you can understand and is very professional, polite and experienced. He did an excellent job on rebuilding my tooth. He will now be my regular dentist. His staff and front desk people were also very nice and polite to deal with. I'm a guy who speaks my mind and would tell you if he wasn't good. This guy is very good!

John in Gaylord, MI – Feb 01, 2016
×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. John Kempton, DDS?
Very personable and attentive and professional. I was very satisfied with the procedures done (old silver filling replaced and prepped for a new bite splint) and the high level of technology used. The entire staff is wonderful. My husband and teenage son were also VERY satisfied with their appointments. My son is a type 1 diabetic and they excelled with him, too.
