Dentist Reviews: About Our Patient Experience Surveys 

Dental Associates Dentist Reviews: Real Reviews from Real Patients

Dental Associates is committed to providing you with the highest level of personalized care. As part of that commitment, we post star ratings based on scores and patient comments online. We partner with an independent firm, Press Ganey, to ensure you are getting reliable, unbiased feedback from our patients. 


About our Patient Experience Surveys 

Press Ganey is the nationally-recognized leader in patient satisfaction in health care. For over 25 years, Press Ganey has worked with over 10,000 health care organizations to measure and improve clinical performance. The results shared on our website are statistically valid and not influenced in any manner by anyone at Dental Associates.  

Who receives the Patient Experience Surveys? 

All patients who have seen a dentist and have a valid mobile phone number or email address on file are invited to complete a Patient Experience Survey and leave comments regarding their care. We use this feedback to recognize our team and enhance the care we offer. 

Do you post all comments? 

Dental Associates is committed to being transparent. As such, we post the majority of comments we receive from patients about their interaction with their dentist, whether they are positive or negative. The only comments we remove are those that are profane, deemed libelous or slanderous, or those that risk the privacy of the patient. For a dentist’s ratings to be posted online, they need 30 returned Patient Experience Surveys.  

We know you have options when choosing a dental provider and acknowledge there are several places where dentist reviews are available. By sharing our Press Ganey Patient Experience Survey results, we provide you with a reliable, unbiased source for Wisconsin dentist reviews so you can make an informed decision. A decision based on data from real patients, conducted by a credible source. 

How are star ratings calculated? 

Press Ganey surveys include an extensive analysis of the patient’s experience with their dentist:  

  • How the dentist listened to you 
  • Explanations the dentist or doctor gave you about your problem or condition 
  • Dentist’s efforts to include you in decisions about your care 
  • Dentist’s discussion of any proposed treatment (options, risks, benefits, etc.)  
  • Likelihood of your recommending this dentist to others 

The comments we share on each doctor’s profile page are the comments collected from the dentist section of the Patient Experience Survey. Every month, our Patient Experience Manager meticulously combs over data collected and feedback from our patients to consistently improve our clinic teams and overall clinic operations.
