Carrying out school dental check-ups

In order to detect tooth damage and misalignments of teeth in children at an early stage, the statutory health insurance companies offer dental group prophylaxis for children and adolescents. The aim is to:

  • to give children an awareness and sense of responsibility for the health of their teeth
  • Improve oral hygiene
  • Detect and prevent dental diseases
  • To inform parents and advise them if they wish.  

Group dental prophylaxis is carried out in crèches, kindergartens, schools and institutions for people with disabilities.

Group prophylaxis specialists, as well as dentists from the public health service or sponsored dentists are on duty for this purpose.

This is a population medical measure. It cannot be used as an individual service.

What are the fees?

None for children, adolescents or their families.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?
