During the consultation, the dentist performs a review of the patient’s teeth, a photo analysis and an X-ray investigation and prepares a treatment plan.
Children’s dental care
The Estonian Health Insurance Fund will pay for the treatment of patients below 19 years of age who are Estonian citizens. In addition, the Health Insurance Fund will cover treatment costs during the year after a patient turns 19 years old if the need for treatment was discovered at the last visit before the patient turned 19.
Adults have the right to receive emergency dental care if postponing the treatment or not performing the treatment could cause death or permanent health damage. The need for emergency care will be decided by the doctor. If the person has European health insurance, the Estonian Health Insurance Fund will cover the cost. Emergency care of non-insured people will be covered from the state budget via Ministry of Social Affairs.
Adult dental care
The Estonian Health Insurance Fund reimburses dentistry services of adult patients to the extent of 40 euros per year. Reimbursement for people with an increased need for dental care is 85 euros per year. The patient must pay at least 50% of the cost.
Reimbursement will be available for:
- adults with Estonian health insurance (40 euros per year);

- people with partial or full incapacity for work (85 euros per year);
