Filing a Complaint
If you have a complaint concerning patient care, please submit a complaint form by clicking on the "File a Complaint" link:
Note: Monetary matters (i.e. billing, insurance claims, etc.) and recovery of money for personal damages are outside of the Board's jurisdiction to resolve.
Alternatives to filing a complaint with the Board are:
- Discuss the issue with the dentist
- Small claims court
- Mediation through the Arkansas State Dental Association's Peer Mediation Committee (contact them at 501-834-7650)
- Contact the Better Business Bureau
