    I have a problem with my dentist. What should I do?

    One of our important responsibilities is to address concerns about a dentist’s conduct or practise. We have the legal authority to investigate any complaint we receive, whether from a patient or another person. This authority covers dentists in all branches of dentistry, including general dentistry and specialty practice.
