A friend, somebody I trust, says she was intimidated by a dentist, Softcare Dental, in Bellevue Washington. It's making her think twice now about posting reviews on the Internet.
I say no way! Speak up! If you had a bad experience, say so. If you had a good experience, say so.
I know nothing at all about this dentist, other than my friend's opinion and what I just read on the internet. I may be wrong. But I note that (most?) of the "good" reviews are suspicious. Posted the same day, by anonymous people who didn't post any other reviews. I don't believe them. I believe my friend.
If this dentist wants to intimidate me for posting my concerns, she's welcome to email me or call me. Meanwhile, there are just too many good dentists out there (like Dr. Nadeem Merchant, who I use) so why bother risking your teeth with Softcare Dental?
By the way, I disagree with my friend on one thing: I prefer to post under my real name. <insert counter-arguments here> I know, I know, but the psychos will find you anyway and when they do, your transparency will be an asset.
