As we know from the Spanish health care system, public healthcare can grant a lot of free healthcare benefits to you if you are a working expat and have registered in the Spanish social security system. Unfortunately, dental care service is not generallycovered by the social security system.
1. Who can enjoy state dental care?
There are 2 cases when going to the dentist is free:
If you are children under 15 years old: The free service might include basic treatments such as yearly check-ups and protective treatments. Not all dentists offer free service to children under 15, requiring you to confirm with the dentists as well as the requirements of the autonomous region you reside.
If you are in an emergency: Emergency dental care is also covered if you are covered by social security or have an EHIC card. If you need emergency treatment, visit this website to find the public medical care center near you.
If you want to have regular dental care, it’s better to have private dental insurance.
