MOSCOSO-MATUS, Karla; CORNEJO-OVALLE, Marco  and  CEPEDA, Sandra. Mediations in dentistry made by the public health system. 2010-2015. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.1, pp.24-27. ISSN 0719-0107.


The 2005 Health Reform established mediation as a mandatory procedure for civil justice, in order to avoid prosecution of health. This research delves into the characteristics of the dental mediations of the Chilean public health system.

Material and method:

Cross-sectional study of mediations generated by dental care granted in the public health system between 2005 and 2015, reported by the Mediation Unit of the State Defense Council (CDE).


Not available prior to 2010 due to the lack of registration. Therefore, an analysis was only feasible from 2010 to 2015. There are 127 dentistry mediations registered, 61% of the claimants are women. 60.6% come from secondary care. 83.4% (106 cases) the claim is against the establishment and the practitioner. Only 22% achieve agreement. Of these, 10% only require explanations and only 28.5% ask for compensation.


A better professional-patient relationship reduces the risk of prosecution, and a better dissemination of the mediation procedure would increase agreement rate.
