What are emergencies?
Although many dental problems can be very bothering and quite painful, they are not life-threatening. Therefore, we do not consider all of these emergencies. We advise you to contact your dentist immediately in the morning of the next working day to make an appointment.
What do we consider an emergency, and when do we advise you to call the emergency dentist?
If you have severe bleeding in your mouth with thick red blood clots (light-red saliva is not severe). Also, in the case of an accident, severe bleeding, and/or when your (natural) teeth have become loose. If in doubt, always call the emergency dentist. Based on your complaint explanation, the dentist will assess whether it is necessary to come to the practice.
Note: Emergency dentist services apply to our own patients only.
Emergency dentist costs and compensation
The costs and compensation of an emergency dentist are similar to those of a regular dentist.
There is an extra surcharge for evening and weekend services.
You can consult your health care policy or contact your health insurance company for information about the exact treatment reimbursement.
