Everything about the costs of a dental visit
Dental costs in 2022
In the Netherlands, dental costs are centrally regulated. The Dutch Healthcare Authority determines what the work of a dentist may cost. This means that the costs are largely the same at every dental practice. Variation can occur due to the use of different materials and the work required differs per teeth.
The dental costs for 2022 have been determined. Below you will find a link to the list of these rates. Please note, these are maximum rates.
Rates and invoices
At the end of the treatment a code will be entered into the invoice system. These codes represent the treatment or procedure your dentist or hygienist has done for you. A few weeks after the treatment you will receive a note of Infomedics. This is a specialized organization in charge of billing and collecting their invoices by multiple providers of medical practitioners. For us Infomedics provides this service so we have more time to provide tailor made care for our patients. It is also possible at the end of the treatment to pay for it by pin. Cash payments are not possible. For the first appointment at our clinic there has to be paid immediately after the treatment. Forget an appointment then it is invoiced as a missed appointment.
It can happen to anyone, the dental appointment forgotten because of all kinds of circumstances. We can relate, that’s why if you forget an appointment for the first time, we will not send you an invoice. We will however admit this in your file with us. If you at least 48 hours in advance inform us that you are unable to attend the appointment, we do not charge anything and it does not count as a missed appointment. If there are special circumstances and you cannot attend the appointment, please call us as soon as possible. In case of illness, we expect you to notify us in the morning. That way we can help someone else in the time reserved for you. At the time a patient fails to attend an appointment, by any circumstances, the practitioner cannot provide the care that he would like to provide. We could have helped another patient in the time reserved for you. Therefore, if a patient doesn’t show up for the second time or more, without good reason, for an appointment, the following rate will be charged: Dentist: € 30, – per quarter of reserved treatment time. Hygienist: € 40, – per half hour of reserved treatment time. Prevention Assistant : € 30, – per treatment. For a dental checkup, a fee of € 10, -. For a long-term appointment for implantation a fee of € 200, – will be charged in case of no show. Please note that the practitioner may charge 100% of the planned handling.
