The Netherlands is the only country in Europe with fully regulated oral health care.

That is, the rates charged by dental practices are generally the same. Differences in costs may still arise because there are often multiple choices to be made and that there may be differences in material and technique costs.

Supplemental Dental Insurance:

To find out if dental treatment is covered, contact your health insurance company. Reimbursements vary by policy and treatment. Review your personal situation before buying new health insurance so you can choose one that fits your needs.
