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.

Dr Mina has been our family dentist for 25 years. She is very professional and has a great knowledge in dentistry overall. She is the only dentist my 26 year old daughter knows and ever been to. She keeps up with technology and you always get honest opinion and answers to your questions.
