The Dental Board of California considers all complaints to be of the utmost importance. As a result the complaint review process may take an extended amount of time.

During the review process, documents are gathered from various sources. Once the information is received, the Board staff and dental consultants carefully review the complaint and all related documents prior to determining appropriate action. This can result in delays and may cause consumers concern that their complaints are not being addressed. Therefore, consumers are always welcome to inquire about the progress of their complaint by following the above listed process.
