First, talk to the doctor to see if you can mutually resolve the problem.
Many issues, not within the jurisdiction of the Board can be resolved though the Peer Review Committee of the local dental association. While Peer Review proceedings are not intended as purely dispute resolution services, professional review often can resolve some kinds of disputes between patients and dentists. The process is confidential and available provided the complaint falls within the peer review guidelines. For more information about this process and its guidelines, contact the Peer Review Director of the Oregon Dental Association at 1-800-452-5628 or visit the ODA web site at www.oregondental.org
If you feel that the issue involves unacceptable patient care or other issues under the jurisdiction of the Board of Dentistry, you have the right to file a complaint with the Board. All complaints filed, that are within the Board´s jurisdiction, are investigated. For more information about this process, see the section on Filing a Complaint
