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 am a dental chicken. It has been over 10 years since I saw a dentist. All staff members understood my freight and were gentle and explained everything to me. The appointment was easy to make. All staff members I interacted with during my visit went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and ease my fear.

I saw Dr. Hatia because a post for an implant had dislodged. She reinserted the post. The post came out, AGAIN, the very next day. So disappointed with this process!

Dr. Hatia is the best dentist I have ever had. I have had dental issues all of my life. At one point, I stopped going because of the bad experiences I've had. I found Dr. Hatia a few years ago and going to the dentist is no longer dreadful. She is gentle, and she truly cares about her patient's and their dental health. Her assistants are awesome and very pleasant and easy to talk to.

Been a patient of Dr. Haitia for many yrs. The best ever. Kind, considerate, caring and a sense of humor which is on my "must have" list. Remembers you from visit to visit. Never feel rushed when I have concerns and never once made me feel ridiculous for inquiries I've made. Accepts my choices when I have them for options I have been given. Finally, the office staff has never failed to work with me on finances when necessary. All around A-OK professional. Lucky to have her in my area!
