Treatment Concerns

Whilst our aim is to always provide the highest quality care, sometimes things do not always go according to plan. For those rare occasions where you feel we have not handled your care to your satisfaction, we operate an internal practice complaints procedure following the British Dental Association guidelines.

Please ask any of our staff for further information and we will happily supply you with a copy of our complaints policy that gives details of the process. Our goal is to obviously avoid foreseeable problems in the first place that may lead to complaints, to give our patients the highest standard of service and to try to deal swiftly with any issues that may occur.

Dental Complaints Service

However if our internal procedure fails to resolve your concerns, and you feel you need to take it further, you can contact an independent complaints body at the General Dental Council (GDC) which aims to help both practitioners and patients with complaints about dentistry, that fail to be resolved internally to the satisfaction of both parties.
