Q&A

My office information is incorrect. How can I change it?
DR.Oogle will remove incorrect information upon request from a dentist. However DR.Oogle does not update individual dentists' office information. It is the dentist's responsibility to maintain the accuracy of their practice listing. Dentists may update their office information here.

How can I remove my practice information?
We do not remove dentists' public information. Just like with other directories and search engine services that may publicly list your name, your consent for inclusion of your name and specialty in our directory listings is not required. Your name and dental specialty is public information that has been made available by your State Dental Board for the purposes of verification of your dental license by patients. It is a condition of your licensure as a dentist by your State Dental Board that your license information which includes your full name and your location information is public. If you have retired, we can remove your practice information. To have your outdated practice information removed from DR.Oogle please use the contact form below.

How can I request removal of a negative review? (Updated Oct 2017)

  1. If you feel that a review is not representative of the overall patient experience in your practice you should encourage your patients to post more reviews to create a more objective representation of your practice.
  2. Registered dentists can post a public rebuttal and reply to reviews by clicking on "Reply" button located in their control panel. We encourage you to explain why you disagree with the reviewer.
  3. Registered dentists may also request patients to retract their reviews by clicking on "Remove" button in their control panel. If the patient does not object to your request their negative review of your practice will be removed.
  4. Please register above to request a review removal or to reply to a review.
  5. In case the patient objects to your request you will be able to message the patient again until a satisfactory solution is reached with the patient.

Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, DR.Oogle will remove allegedly infringing material from the Service upon receipt of a notice which complies with the requirements of this section. If the allegedly infringing material is not hosted or stored on the server computers used or controlled by DR.Oogle, but is nevertheless displayed or transmitted through the Service, DR.Oogle will use its best efforts to remove allegedly infringing material from being displayed or transmitted through the Service upon receipt of a notice which complies with the requirements of this section.

We will provide a copy of your Counter-Notice to the party that sent the Notice you are responding to.

THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE SERVICE OR ITS OPERATION. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, DR.OOGLE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT.

If any modification is unacceptable to you, you agree that your only recourse is to immediately terminate your use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service following our posting of a change of terms notice or new Terms of Use on the Service, or an email to you providing notice of such change, will constitute your binding acceptance of the change. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS OF USE INDICATES THAT YOU GIVE CONSENT TO DR.OOGLE TO E-MAIL YOU WITH NOTICES CONCERNING MATERIAL CHANGES IN THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE SERVICE.

15. ARBITRATION, JURISDICTION & GOVERNING LAW

You and DR.Oogle agree that the exclusive remedy for all disputes and claims relating in any way to, or arising out of, these Terms of Use, the Service, or your use of the Service (including the arbitrability of any claim or dispute and the enforceability of this paragraph), or to any other alleged act or omission by you or DR.Oogle toward the other, shall be determined exclusively by final and binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") before a panel of three arbitrators and conducted in Palo Alto, California. You and DR.Oogle also agree that the AAA Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection shall apply to the proceedings.

You and DR.Oogle may litigate in court only to compel arbitration under these Terms of Use or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrators. To the extent that you have breached or have indicated your intention to breach these Terms of Use in any manner which violates or may violate DR.Oogle's or any of its licensor's intellectual property rights, or may cause continuing or irreparable harm to DR.Oogle (including, but not limited to, any breach that may impact DR.Oogle's intellectual property rights), DR.Oogle may seek injunctive relief, or any other appropriate relief, in any court of competent jurisdiction.

You and DR.Oogle must commence an arbitration by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. (If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, the claim must be asserted within the shortest time period in excess of one year that is permitted by applicable law.)

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law: no arbitration under these Terms of Use shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other current or former licensee of DR.Oogle, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise; no finding or stipulation of fact in any other arbitration, judicial or similar proceeding may be given preclusive or collateral estoppel effect in any arbitration hereunder (unless determined in another proceeding between you and DR.Oogle); and no conclusion of law in any other arbitration may be given any weight in any arbitration hereunder (unless determined in another proceeding between you and DR.Oogle).

In any proceeding of any kind arising out of or otherwise related to the Service, the prevailing party will have the right to recover its costs and reasonable fees of attorneys, accountants and other professionals. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if you, contrary to these Terms of Use, attempt to bring suit or assert any other form of claim against DR.Oogle in any forum other than an arbitration in Palo Alto, California, you acknowledge that DR.Oogle may, in its discretion, challenge such forum's jurisdiction over DR.Oogle, and that the prevailing party in such a jurisdictional proceeding will have the right to recover its costs and reasonable fees of attorneys, accountants and other professionals.

THESE TERMS OF USE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAW PROVISIONS, AND YOU HEREBY CONSENT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS SITTING IN PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA. These Terms of Use will not be governed by the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and the application of thereof is hereby expressly excluded.

16. GENERAL

No delay or failure to take action under these Terms of Use shall constitute any waiver by DR.Oogle of any provision of this Agreement.

These Terms of Use (including all documents expressly incorporated by reference) constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between DR.Oogle and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral or written understandings, communications or agreements not specifically incorporated herein.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, it is, to that extent, deemed omitted and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. These Terms of Use will bind and inure to the benefit of each party's permitted successors and assigns. The agreement embodied in these Terms of Use is personal to you and may not be transferred, assigned or delegated to anyone. Any attempt by you to assign, transfer or delegate your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use shall be null and void.
