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.

I'm so impressed with Dr. Bates. He observed my daughter's teeth development for two years before fitting her with braces.. This process decreased cost, allowing teeth to properly come in without tools. He was so great my younger daughter has braces now. This was all done with a great payment plan. This office is fantastic!!!
