If you were unsuccessful
in your attempt to resolve your complaint directly with your
dentist, several options are available to you.
In some counties, the local dental society maintains a patient relations committee. The committee of volunteer dentists will review your complaint, contact your dentist and attempt to resolve your case. You should be prepared to clearly identify exactly what you want to satisfy your complaint. The patient relations process is strictly voluntary.
Other dispute resolution options are available through professional mediators. Professional mediators work both independently, as well as through community mediation centers. Besides those listed on this website, local alternate dispute resolution or community mediation centers will be listed in your telephone directory.
Professional mediators are accessible through the Pennsylvania Council of Mediators.
