and it will get immediate personal attention. Please try to do this as soon as possible following any incident to which you refer. You may wish to seek independent legal advice from the Citizen's Advice Bureau.

If you are still not satisfied, you can contact the Dental Complaints Service. It has a team of trained advisors who help private dental patients and dental professionals settle complaints about private dental care fairly and efficiently. It provides a free and impartial service funded by the General Dental Council, the organisation that regulates dental professionals in the UK.

Complaints about the ability or behaviour of a dental professional should be made direct to the General Dental Council.
