July 5, 2023
DO NOT USE PEARLINE’S SERVICES OR THE APPLICATION IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A DENTAL EMERGENCY OR ANY OTHER SYMPTOMS THAT REQUIRE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. CALL YOUR GENERAL DENTIST OR DIAL 911.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS AN ARBITRATION PROVISION IN SECTION 18.
Kalmanovich Dental Corp (the “Practice”) is a California professional corporation that employs and/or contracts with dentists and registered dental hygienists (“Health Care Professionals”) to provide dental services to adults. The Practice has entered into a contract with Kalmanovich Dental Corp, a technology company that (i) provides technological and administrative support for the Practice, and (ii) owns and operates the Pearline website including the Pearline web application software (the “Application”) called “Pearline Health™” (collectively, the “Platform”), and (iii) owns and operates anything associated with the Platform including its content (“Content”). The Practice and Kalmanovich Dental Corp are sometimes collectively referred to herein as “Pearline”, “we”, or “us”.
The Practice provides routine dental hygiene services and limited dental exams in person and via teledentistry. Pursuant to its contract with the Practice, Kalmanovich Dental Corp licenses the Application to the Practice. Kalmanovich Dental Corp does not provide any health care or dental services, nor does it refer or recommend any health care providers or personnel.
By using the Application, and by requesting and/or receiving services through the Application (collectively the “Services”), you agree to be bound by the terms of service set out below (the “Agreement”). If you do not agree to all of the terms of this Agreement, do not use the Application or our Services. Pearline may revise and update this Agreement at any time. We may modify this Agreement from time to time and your continued use of the Application or our Services will mean you accept the revised Agreements. All changes will be posted and the effective date will be noted at the top of this Agreement. Therefore, you should review it periodically so that you are up to date on our most current Agreement.
1. Pearline’s Services
The Application is a technology platform that makes it easy to initiate and transmit a request for limited dental services at its studios and via telehealth. The provision of the requested dental services is called an “Appointment” in this Agreement.
Pearline’s in-office services are strictly limited to teeth cleanings and limited exams for adult patients. All in-office services are provided by a registered dental hygienist, under the remote supervision of a licensed dentist.
NO DENTIST WILL BE ONSITE DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT. PEARLINE DOES NOT PROVIDE GENERAL OR COMPREHENSIVE DENTAL SERVICES AND IS NOT YOUR GENERAL DENTIST. Pearline’s Services do not replace the need for you to see your general dentist annually for comprehensive exams and evaluation for x-rays.
2. Your Privacy and Your Obligation to Provide Accurate Information
In order to obtain our Services you must provide Pearline with certain personal and medical information and register for an account.
It is imperative that you provide accurate and truthful information during the registration process. By submitting the registration information requested, you represent and warrant to us that all of the personal information you provide to Pearline, both during the registration process or anytime thereafter, is true and correct to the best of your knowledge. We reserve the right to refuse your registration or to cancel your use of the Application and/or the Services if we determine that you have not provided complete and accurate information including with regard to your identity or your health history.
You also agree that you will not choose or use a username that: (i) belongs to another person or is used with the intent of impersonating another person; or (ii) is subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate authorization. You may never use another person’s sign-in details to access the Application and/or Services.
3. Billing for Services
Pearline is responsible for billing patients and patients’ dental insurance plans for the Services. Information regarding how Pearline submits claims for reimbursement and your expected financial responsibility is summarized below. Pearline makes no guarantee that its Services will be covered by your dental insurance plan. In addition, not all dental insurance plans are contracted with Pearline. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to determine how your dental insurance benefits apply to the Services.
If you submit your dental insurance plan information using the Application, Pearline will process your claim and seek to collect from your plan that portion of Pearline’s fee for which your plan is responsible. You will still be financially responsible for any applicable copayments, co-insurance or deductibles, or for any services that are not covered by your plan and your credit card will be charged accordingly.
If your dental insurance plan does not cover all or part of the Services or you are uninsured, then you will be financially responsible for the full payment of the standard rate of the Services and your credit card will be charged accordingly using a third party payment processing provider.
You must be 18 years of age or older to use the Application and the Services.

18. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
You and Pearline agree that all disputes, controversies and claims related to this Agreement, the Application, the Services, or any part thereof provided by Pearline (each a “Claim”), shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration as described in this Section, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other.
Payment of arbitration costs will be governed by the AAA’s fee schedule, unless you are able to show that your portion will be prohibitive as compared to litigation costs, in which case Pearline will pay as much of your arbitration costs as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to litigation costs. Pearline also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all arbitration costs imposed by the AAA. Each party agrees to pay its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a governing statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid attorneys’ fees and expenses.
The arbitration shall be conducted in Los Angeles, California, except that, in the event Los Angeles, California is not within 100 miles of your residence, the arbitration may be conducted within 100 miles of your residence, unless the parties agree otherwise in writing. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD ANY RELIEF AVAILABLE IN A COURT OF LAW.
For more information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at https://www.adr.org.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, to the extent the Dispute arises from: (a) a violation of either party’s intellectual property rights in any manner; (b) any claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, unauthorized use or a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; and/or (c) any claim for equitable relief; then you and Pearline agree that a party may seek injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in a state or federal court in Los Angeles, California, and both parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, all Disputes shall be resolved by binding confidential arbitration on an individual basis. You expressly agree that no other Disputes shall be consolidated or joined with your Dispute, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES, THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, AND NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.
