Emergency dental treatment continues to be available

In this emergency situation and in relation to the coronavirus outbreak, the Health Board decided to suspend all scheduled dental treatment. In the case of an acute dental emergency, however, emergency dental treatment continues to be available.

‘If a dental clinic is capable of providing first aid, they are allowed to treat emergency cases. It is not required to have a valid contract with the Health Insurance Fund. The clinic must use protective equipment, as required, and strictly follow the safety instructions in force. However, the first step for everyone is to consult their dentist to determine whether or not they provide emergency treatment and if they have a valid contract with the Health Insurance Fund. If not, a person should turn to the nearest on-call clinic listed on the web site of the Health Insurance Fund,’ explained Külli Friedemann, Head of the Primary Healthcare Department of the Health Insurance Fund.
