Treatment within the scope of the public health insurances
This includes treatment for which the public health insurances bear the expenses completely or in part (e.g. amalgam fillings, white fillings at incisor teeth, root canal treatments, X-ray pictures, denture repairs etc.).
At this point we like to clear up a widespread misconception:
A dentist does not receive a lump sum for a patient’s health insurance certificate. He is paid by result, exactly for the work he has done; these works are listed in a catalogue with fixed rates by the public health insurances. The dentist has to follow the terms of the contract.
Besides, an intensive advisory conversation is not part of the contract and is therefore free of charge, so this is a special service of your dentist.
