Dr. Oogle, which calls itself the Good Dentist Guide, contains more than 151, 448 patient reviews of dentists all over the U.S. Each dentist is rated on a scale of one to five stars in five different categories: facilities, service, painlessness, cost, and results. Patients can also leave comments that describe what services they received and what their experience was like. Some describe the procedure and specify the cost – information that can be valuable for potential patients – and some also evaluate the experience they have with the dental hygienist.
The ratings are based on voluntary opinions from patients. The more positive reviews a dentist has, the higher their ranking will be – so the system favors those practitioners with multiple ratings. The staff at Dr. Oogle actively monitors the reviews and enforces its policies to prevent manipulation by the dentists or their competitors. If a review seems “too good to be true” or “too bad to be true,” the staff may contact the poster for additional details. Postings from friends and family of the dentists are considered spam and are removed. Dentists are not allowed to post testimonials or to insert opinions about other dentists; dentists found giving other dentists negative reviews will be suspended from the website. Each patient is allowed to post only one time about a particular dentist.
“I am very grateful to my patients for giving me such glowing reviews,” said Miami cosmetic dentist Dr. Nottingham. “It’s very satisfying to know what they are pleased with the work I do and that my services are appreciated.”

You'll love everyone at this office. It worth the expense-you'll have beautiful teeth.”
Another patient writes: “I can say that every appointment…
