All costs covered for prevention, early detection and treatment
Dental treatment covers all of the necessary work associated with the prevention, early detection and treatment of tooth, oral or jaw diseases, along with any fillings that may be required.
Your dentist will check your teeth and offer you entirely personalised advice on which treatments may be appropriate or necessary. But regardless of which treatment you decide on, SBK will cover the cost of your dental work to help ease the financial burden for you.
All you have to do is demonstrate that your dental treatment is medically essential and that the work done to your teeth only includes what is actually necessary.
Your dentist invoices SBK directly for the contractual dental costs associated with your treatment. Simply show your electronic health care card to the dental surgery and that’s all there is to it.
In the event that services require prior approval – for example, periodontal treatment – your dentist will contact us directly. Generally speaking, you will receive the go-ahead from us with regard to taking on the contractual treatment costs within a few days of us receiving the necessary paperwork.
