We ensure that all complaints are dealt with courteously and promptly so that the matter is resolved as quickly as possible. The person responsible for dealing with any complaint about the service we provide is Mrs. N. SHAH, our Complaints Manager and the dentist Dr. Vik Shah.

If you complain on the telephone or at the reception desk, we will listen and offer to refer your complain to the Complaints Manager immediately. If the Complaints Manager is not available at the time, then arrangements will be made for you to discuss your complaint with the dentist or another member of staff. The member of staff will take brief details of the complaint and pass them on.
