Summary

Ms C, a voluntary agency worker, complained on behalf of Mr A that the dental care and treatment he had received had been inadequate. We took dental advice which stated that the care and treatment had been appropriate. It noted Mr A had not attended regular dental reviews, which had contributed to the damage to his teeth.

We found that the dentist had acted reasonably and that the care they had provided was appropriate, and we therefore did not uphold this complaint.
