Complaints usually arise from poor communication and the patient’s expectations of a good service level. It is often the negative factors in the relationship between the dental team and the patient that determines the patient’s decision to make a complaint. This course will show you how to deal with all aspects of a complaint.

  • Explore what constitutes a complaint
  • Understand the reasons patients complain
  • Learn how to manage patient expectations
  • Understand GDC requirements in relation to complaints handling
  • Provide practical solutions to dealing with complaints.

The course provides 60 minutes of verifiable CPD.
