What should the patient do? The first step is for a patient to complete the&#160;Request for Review of Dental Services form. Working with Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), CDS will then assign the request to members of the CDS Mediation and Peer Review Committee for their review. Committee members may ask to interview or examine the patient and talk with the dentist who provided treatment. The entire process is free and strictly confidential. Dentists choose whether or not to participate. In most cases, CDS is able to resolve complaints to both parties' satisfaction.&#160; Because ISDS oversees the program, patients must complete the&#160;Request for Review of Dental Services form&#160;and mail it to: Illinois State Dental Society Committee on Mediation and Clinical Peer Review P.O. Box 376 Springfield, IL 62705 Questions? Contact&#160;Helen Rabitoy, Mediation and Peer Review Manager.</p> Tom LongWed, 15 Oct 2014 16:20:51 GMTDental Community Welcomehttp://www.cds.org/Dental_Community/Dental_Community_Welcome.aspx Welcome to the Dental Community Welcome to the Dental Community Tom LongTue, 23 Sep 2014 14:11:14 GMTCDS Special Eventshttp://www.cds.org/Dental_Community/CDS_Special_Events.aspx <p>CDS Special Events During the year, the Chicago Dental Society provides for members only the opportunity to obtain tickets to various special events.
