Scheduled dental treatments are allowed There are rules in place to prevent the spread of the infection.
When you arrive at the clinic, you must disinfect your hands and you must allow for your temperature to be taken (using a contactless method), and you must also complete the COVID-19 health declaration.
If you have any symptoms of a respiratory disease (cough, runny nose) and/or fever, you will not be able to go to the scheduled treatment.
Come to the appointment alone and on time, if possible. One person may accompany an underage patient or a person needing attendance. If you arrive early, you may be asked to wait outside the clinic, keeping the distance of at least 2 metres from other visitors.
It is very important to use all the necessary precautions in the dental office, as the procedures result in a continuous aerosol cloud covering all items within a radius of up to five metres. In such an environment, the risk of spreading infection is very high and due to that the safety measures are stricter.
In case of acute dental pain, first consult your dentist, who can advise you by phone and, if necessary, prescribe medication or provide emergency treatment, if possible.
You have the option of contacting the dental clinics who have a contract with the Estonian Health Insurance Fund for free emergency dental treatment - contacts can be found on the Health Insurance Fund webpage. Registration for appointments is necessary to ensure safety.
