Recieved Sub-standard Dental Care?

In all circumstances, when dealing with dental professionals, we expect to receive the highest standard of care. We should all feel confident that our dentist is well-trained and follows the best practice guidelines. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and occasionally some of us may receive sub-standard care or treatment.
