Terms and Conditions
RESTRICTED TO ADULTS You must be at least 18 years of age to use the Website. You agree to be solely responsible for (i) maintaining such controls over the use and/or access to the Website by minors in your family or (ii) having access to your computer or login limited to the extent necessary to restrict use to adults.
OUR STAFF Our staff includes, in part, dentists and other health care professionals. None of our dentists will enter into a dentist-patient relationship with you, and no other Professional participants will establish any clinical relationship with you while they are using our Website services. They can assist you in your personal, general research but they will not engage in any conduct that involves the practice of dentistry, medicine or other health care profession. The information you obtain from the Website should not substitute for or be used instead of a clinical or therapeutic relationship with a health care professional. You are responsible for reviewing and understanding all research and other information obtained by you from the Website.
The Professional participants will not create or retain any medical records about you or monitor your care. The Professional participants should not be considered to be your treating or care giving health care professional and will not communicate with your own health care provider. Consequently, any information you obtain from the Website should not substitute or be used instead of a relationship with a health care professional. All users are encouraged to seek the advice of, and regularly consult with, dentists and other health care professionals of their selection. You should not disregard or delay medical advice or treatment based on information on the Website.
The Website does not clinically evaluate or perform credentialing of the Professional participants, because the Professional participants are not practicing dentistry or providing dental advice about individual-specific treatment matters. The Professional participants do not diagnose or treat any dental or medical conditions or prescribe medication or treatments for anyone using the Website. The Professional participants may not accept payment from you and may not bill any insurance company, government payment program, or other source of health benefits in compensation for providing information to you on the Website. If you decide to seek information or obtain treatment from any Sponsor (as described below), the Professional participants will not follow up or monitor your care.
Please do not share personal medical information of a kind you would wish to be held confidential in a dentist-patient or similar clinical relationship. The members of the Professional participants do not keep any medical records and will not have any records concerning prior contacts you may have made to our Website. Since the Professional participants are not in a dentist-patient relationship with you, the information you provide will not be considered a medical record. The Company shall have the right to use any questions, comments, or other information submitted by users in books, magazine articles, commentaries, research or similar ways.
When we receive an e-mail, we make reasonable efforts to respond in as timely a manner as possible, but the Company does not guarantee that it will respond to all inquiries. We reserve the right to ignore or delete any information, including, without limitation, information that is fraudulent, abusive, defamatory, and obscene or in violation of a copyright, trademark or other intellectual property or ownership right of any other person.

While we attempt to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing our files or tampering with our site, we cannot guarantee that these efforts will always be successful or that information will be transmitted without interruption or error and the Company specifically disclaims any liability with respect thereto.
