As of April 21, scheduled dental treatments are allowed again, many dental clinics have started making new appointments. The rules established due the emergency situation are still in force to prevent the spread of the infection.
When you arrive at the clinic, you must disinfect your hands, your temperature will be taken (using a contactless method), and you must also complete the COVID-19 health declaration.
If you have any signs of respiratory disease (cough, runny nose) and/or fever, you will not be able to go to the 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 earlier, you may be asked to wait outside the clinic, keeping the distance of at least 2-metres from other clients.
It is very important to use all the necessary precautions in the dental office, as the procedures result in 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 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 opportunity to contact 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.
