Full details of our practice complaints procedure are displayed within the practice. All complaints are taken seriously and where possible, resolved in-house within a fair and prompt time frame, and detailed in our literature. Our procedures conform to current guidance. Any complaints which may not be resolved despite our best efforts may be referred to the public service ombudsman. Should you have any queries relating to a complaint, please speak to Clare who will do her best to resolve it for you.
Any complaints relating to private treatment are handled by a separate body known as the Dental Complaints Service.
