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.

Arrogant and not helpful. He probably should have stopped practicing years ago.

Dr. Hurst did a great job with both of my kid's teeth. He is patient with them and is always willing to work with our busy schedules.

Thank you Dr. Hurst for such an outstanding experience. I personally came to you at my son's age and my teeth are still just as beautiful. I know my son's teeth will be just as beautiful when he is in his fourties. Thankful that you were still in business after all of these years!

My child's teeth did not have space to come in straight, Dr Hurst was able to turn the teeth 180 degrees to get them in alignment. He did all this in less than a year, amazing work!

I have had 4 kids with braces at Dr Hurst's office . He is extremely knowledgeable and gets fantastic results ! We never have to wait long to be seen at appointments in fact the kids go right to the back upon arrival. Dr Hurst does things the right way , he doesn't try to rush or cut corners. My kids teeth look perfect and it has been a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Hurst
