How should I raise my concern or complaint?

Our primary purpose is protecting the public from risk of harm.

If you have a complaint or concern about illegal practice please report it to us.

This might include:

  • Unregistered, erased or suspended individuals offering or providing dental treatment or advice.

  • Illegal tooth whitening.

  • Unregistered, erased or suspended individuals making or fitting dentures directly to the public.

  • Unregistered, erased or suspended individuals calling themselves 'dentists' or other dental titles.

  • Unregistered, erased or suspended individuals receiving payment for dental treatments or advice.

  • Companies which receive payment for dental treatments or advice where the majority of directors are not registered with us.

If you have a complaint or concern about the ability of a registered dental professional to perform dentistry safely, please contact our Fitness to Practise team.

If you have a complaint or concern about an individual or company selling or supplying tooth whitening products, please report this to your local Trading Standards office as they are empowered to handle complaints of this nature.

Should your complaint not relate to illegal practice or either of the areas outlined above, our Who can​ help page gives you details of other organisations which may be able to help you.
