The Prosecutor’s Office in Gran Canaria, which has a department responsible for children, is this week joining the investigation into the practices of iDental dental clinics across the Canary Islands and Spain.
It is reported that around 15,000 people have been affected across all Spanish regions for alleged fraud and malpractice in these dental clinics, but over 1000 complaints have been filed in the Canary Islands, and some of these include children reported to be victims. The Prosecutor’s Office in Gran Canaria is focusing upon the actions and closure of this dental clinic that have affected children and young people.
The complainants must pay an expert for legal opinions, and this evidence is used in possible trials. Some financial companies offer alternative treatment in other franchise dental practices. However, the Prosecutor’s Office recommends caution for victims of iDental as high legal costs and alternative offers of treatment are described as “a precarious service.”
The complainants demand assistance from local institutions to guide the victims, who in most cases have few financial resources, and the Prosecutor’s Office is hoping to support the victims of iDental dental clinics across the Canary Islands.
