Dental Care Fees
Until December 31st in the year when you turn 19, you are included in paediatric dental care, and thus get free dental care.
There are, however, certain dental care treatments that Region Skåne does not pay for in paediatric dental care. The dental care unit you have chosen can give you information about what dental care is not free.
Fees in Adult Dental Care
Free pricing means that prices for the same treatment can vary between different dental care units. It may therefore be a good idea to compare prices before choosing a dentist or dental hygienist.
Unlike in other health care, in dental care, you pay a bigger share of the care fee yourself. The cost for dental care is therefore higher than for other health care.
The dental care unit you have chosen can give you information about what fees apply.
Subscription Dental Care at a Fixed Monthly Price
In adult dental care, some care providers/dental care units also offer subscription dental care, i.e. care at a fixed monthly price.
Dental Care at the Same Price as Health Care
In some cases, adult patients can also get dental care at the same price as other health care. This care is part of the Dental Care Reform 1999/2013 which is also described under “Adult Dental Care”.
The patient fees that you pay as part of the Dental Care Reform 1999/2013 are included in health care’s high-cost protection, and once you have paid the maximum fee, you’ll get a free pass.
