Hello, I have sent this to google multiple times but no help !!

I am running a dental office:

My fellow competitor owns multiple domain names linking to their same business: Bowmanville Dental

They generally occupy the first and second spots on all searches related to the city area on adwords and it is quite frustrating since they are the same business !


I need help in removal of this violation,, ...all one and the same ! end result is our practice does not even show up in the top adwords spots since the others are occupied by this same business !
