The Dental Complaints Resolution Service assists dental patients and participating dentists to resolve complaints about dental services.

We are an independent service provided by the Irish Dental Association.
Our aim is to resolve complaints fairly, efficiently, transparently and quickly by working with the patient and dentist involved.

To seek our help with a dental complaint
Telephone 094-902-5105 during office hours: (Monday to Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm)
or fill in the form on this website.

For patients

Any patient wishing to make a complaint should, in the first instance, raise the issue with the nominated person in the dental practice.

If you are not satisfied with the response you receive, then contact the Dental Complaints Resolution Service.
