Complaints Procedure

If you have a complaint or concern about the service you have received from the dentists or any of the staff working in this practice, please let us know. Our complaint system adheres to national criteria. Comments and suggestions cards are in our waiting rooms.

Our complaints manager is Beth Chaloner.

How to Complain

We hope that most problems can be sorted out easily and quickly, at the time they arise and with the person concerned alternatively speak to a receptionist who will direct you to the practice manager. If the manager is not present the receptionist will arrange for the manager to phone you to discuss the complaint at the earliest opportunity.

If your problem cannot be sorted in this way and you wish to make a written complaint, we would like you to let us know as soon as possible – ideally, within a matter of days or at most a few weeks – because this will enable us to establish what happened most easily. If it is not possible to do that, please let us have details of your complaint:

Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment in order to discuss your concerns.

What We Shall Do

We shall acknowledge your complaint within 2 working days and aim to have looked into your complaint within 21 working days of the date when you raised it with us. We shall then be in a position to give you an explanation, or offer a meeting with those involved.

In investigating your complaint, we shall aim to:

Complaining on Behalf of Someone Else

Please note that we keep strictly to the rules of confidentiality. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have the permission to do so. A note signed by the person concerned will be needed, unless that are incapable of providing this because of physical or mental illness or are a child under 16 years.

Useful Contacts

We hope that, if you have a problem, you will make use of our practice complaints procedure. We believe this will provide the best chance of putting right whatever has gone wrong and an opportunity to improve our practice. However this does not affect your right to complain to the Dental Complaints Service, if you feel you cannot raise your complaint with us or you are dissatisfied with the result of our investigation.
