Am I covered by travel insurance if I need to see a dentist?

Yes, there’s cover if you need to go to a dentist for pain relieving emergency dental treatment while travelling.

What’s covered

Your policy can cover your dental costs for immediate pain relieving treatment up to the limit shown on the list of benefits due to an:

  • injury
  • infection
  • lost filling
  • broken tooth

What you need to do if something happens:

  • go to any licensed dentist for the emergency dental treatment you need
  • call the emergency assistance team for advice on your dental condition or if you need directions to the nearest or most suitable dentist
  • you should pay the dental bills yourself then make a claim online once all your treatment is finished.
  • There is a €70/$100USD policy excess/copay deducted per person, per claimable event

What’s not covered

The policy isn’t designed to cover everything. Take the time to read the terms and conditions in the Product Guide (policy wording) for full details.

Here are the main things that aren’t covered:

  • dental treatment which can wait until your return home
  • any dental expenses considered a pre-existing medical condition or related to a pre-existing conditions, which include conditions which are chronic or ongoing or where symptoms have appeared, you are aware of or where treatment has been received or surgery performed prior to your policy commencement date (and/or prior to a new extended period of insurance)
