Dentists

A GP does not have knowledge regarding dental problems. Dental care is privatised in the Netherlands. It is not covered by basic insurance policies (except for children under 18 and specialist dental care, such as surgery). So please check

the conditions of your health insurance before you make an appointment. If you are not insured for dental care, you will need to pay the dental bill on the spot.

Finding a dentist

Most Dutch dentists (tandarts) work in their own single-dentist practice. There are many dentists all over the city. You are free to choose your own dentist. A number of practices have dentists who speak English and other foreign languages. Go to the website tandarts.nl to search for a conveniently located dentist.

In case of emergency in evenings or weekends, you can contact the Dentist Intermediate Office (+31 85 105 6509).
