What happens to a dentist if you file a formal complaint?

Question by Sunshine75: What happens to a dentist if you file a formal complaint?
I had a very bad experience and this dentist said some very inappropriate things. I have called the American Dental Association and explained to them; they encouraged me to file a complaint against him with my state dental board. I was just wondering what will they do to him. Thanks!
I am not interested in any monetary gains. I just want to prevent someone else from going through I did.

File the complaint. The dentist will be investigated and if proven to be guilty of inappropriate actions he could be arrested and lose his license.
