The Peer Review Mediation program is available to members of the American, Florida and West Coast District Dental Associations. Mediation is voluntary and is designed to resolve problems between dentists and patients in a fast, cost-effective manner.
Only cases involving problems with actual treatment and procedures are eligible for mediation. Cases not eligible for the Peer Review Mediation Program include malpractice litigation; formal regulatory investigations; disputes over dental fees; treatment that occurred more than 12 months before the patient’s last appointment with the dentist; and cases involving dentists who are not members.
If you need additional information on the peer review process, please contact the West Coast District Dental Association at (813) 654-2500.
