TERMS OF USE

Our terms of use contains relevant and important information about your rights. If you use this website then you’re giving consent to all the information included within our terms of use. If you don’t agree to the conditions laid out in our terms of use section, then please refrain from using our website.

Content

All content contained herein are subject to change at any time without prior notice. Despite dentaldecider’s effort to ensure that the information provided on our website is accurate, inaccuracies and errors do occasionally occur. We make no claim or representation as to how accurate or thorough any of the content provided on this website is. We also constantly change and improve the website design and functionality so be on the lookout for updates.

Copyright

All photos and material submitted to dentaldecider become property of dentaldecider.com. Photos and profiles of dentists and dental specialists are copyright and belong to the actual dentist as well as dentaldecider. The use of any these photos is not permitted without expressed written consent of dentaldecider.com. If you are interested in using any of the photos on this website please contact us at customerservice@dentaldecider.com to see if permission can be granted.

Profile Audits

One of the services that dentaldecider offers is a photo sharing service designed for dentists and dental specialists. Dentists create their own profile and submit photos of their treatments to us. We in turn create photo galleries for them to exhibit their work to viewers searching for those treatments. Dentists are advised to only submit photos and radiographs of work which they have completed themselves. Submitting photos of work which has been conducted by other dentists is strictly forbidden and can result in probation, suspension or deletion of accounts at the sole discretion of dentaldecider.com.

dentaldecider reserves the right to audit any dentists whose work is submitted and posted on the website. This would be similar to an insurance company audit to verify that treatment was legitimately conducted to prevent cheating and fraud. We periodically conducted audits of random profiles to ensure the work does indeed belong to the submitting doctor. We may request X-rays, patient contact information, charts or other types of documents to verify the authenticity of work which has been submitted to our websites. Dentists who submit their work to our website must agree to cooperate with such audits and provide us with the necessary documents to allow us to conduct our audits.

Audits are necessary in order to protect doctor’s right from having photographs of their work stolen. If you suspect that a dentist or dental specialist is submitting photos of work which does not actually belong to them, please contact us at customerservice@dentaldecider.com and inform us of the circumstances surrounding the situation. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

Penalties

dentaldecider reserves the right to audit dentist profiles to verify the validity of content and that the photos actually belong to the treating dentist or dental specialist. Should dentaldecider determine through its investigation that the submitted work did not actually belong to the dentist or should the dentist refuse to cooperate during the auditing process, we reserve the right to enforce penalties. Penalties can include probation, reduced ranking on the search results page, temporary suspension of an account or even indefinite deletion of an account with a lifetime ban from using the services, typically reserved for the most gross offenders. All content submitted to dentaldecider become property of dentaldecider, as such we reserve the right to remove any content should we deem it necessary to do so.

The enforced penalty is at the sole discretion of dentaldecider and we do not need to justify neither the reasoning nor the severity of the penalty. Although we typically warn parties in advance, we are under no obligation to provide any explanation prior to enforcing any form of penalty on an account. There may also be a monetary penalty of up to $5000 for reinstating profiles which have been placed on probation or suspended. Permanently deleted profiles are not eligible for reinstatement under any circumstances.
