The City of Tampere provides dental health services for all residents.

Children under school age

Dental checks are provided for all children at the age of 1, 2, 4, and 5 years. Also, checks based on individual need are made. Children of these ages receive a letter by post, requesting their parents to make an appointment for them. A parent or guardian may make the appointment via the e-services or by calling the centralised appointment service.

Schoolchildren

Dental checks are provided for children in the first, fifth and eighth year of school. In addition, checks based on individual need are made. All such children under 12 years old of age receive a letter requesting an appointment to be made for them. The parent or guardian may make the appointment by means of the e-services or by calling the centralised appointments service. Children older than 12 years receive an invitation to an appointment made for them.

Dental care for students

A letter requesting to make an appointment is sent to 17-year-olds. An appointment can be made through e-services by using individual Internet bank identifiers, or by calling the centralised appointments service. It is also possible to use e-services to check, reschedule, or cancel an appointment; to make an initial appointment with a dental hygienist for assessing the need for treatment; and to make an urgent-care appointment with a dentist.

Students in Tampere who are residents of other municipalities may use the dental health services provided by the City of Tampere.

Adults

Adults book an appointment through the centralised appointment service. It is also possible to use e-services to check, reschedule, or cancel an appointment; to make an initial appointment with a dental hygienist for assessing the need for treatment and to make an appointment with a dentist for urgent care.
