As an expat in the Netherlands, you might be asking yourself about the Dutch dental care system. Fortunately, the Netherlands has great dental care system and offers a wide array of dental care services.
Unless it is an emergency, regular basic insurance does not cover dentists, this means that you have to usually buy an add-on to your insurance that offers dental care. Dental care add-ons usually offer a certain amount of dental coverage or full coverage depending on the insurance you have.
Needing a tooth surgery, like removing a wisdom tooth with a surgeon for example, does not need dental coverage as it is covered by your basic insurance.
