Finding a dentist

You are free to register with the dentist (tandarts) of your choice, although many dentists may have too many current patient to accept new patients. It is recommended to find one close to your home. Tandarts.nl offers you an overview of dentists in Groningen and shows if they are currently accepting new patients.

What does the dentist do?

The dentist will invite you twice a year for a dental check. There are also specialized dentists, such as orthodontists. You can be referred to these specialists by your dentist if needed. You can find more information about the dentist on the website of the IWCN.

Health insurance and the dentist

Dental care is not covered by the basic Dutch health insurance for people over 18 years old. You can take out supplementary insurance to partly cover the costs of dental care.
