Through the Ohio Dental Association, Corydon Palmer Dental Society conducts a peer review program to settle disputes between patients and dentists or third-party payers and dentists. The kinds of disputes that may be resolved through peer review are complaints about the quality of care, the appropriateness of care, or the fairness of fees.
The procedure for initiating peer review is to contact the Corydon Palmer Executive Office at 330.719.1297 and request peer review. The society’s peer review committee will conduct the peer review and convey its decision to the dentist and the complaining party.
Under some circumstances, decisions of the peer review committee at the local society’s level can be appealed to the state dental association by either the dentist or the complaining party.
