Dental prices in Norway
In Norway, a well-known discussion topic among people and media is dental prices in Norway. People think dental prices in Norway are too expensive and should be covered by the public government. Albeit the government covers dental treatment for certain groups. Among those are:
- Children and juvinelse 0-18 år
- Mentally challenged individuals
- Older people with long term disabilities and disabled individuals belonging to an institution or needing home-care.
- Juveniles who become 19 or 20 the year they receive dental treatment get a 75% discount.
- Other groups the government has chosen to prioritize.
Those who are not among the categories listed above have to pay full price for receiving dental treatment.
Government refunds on dental prices in Norway

Not everyone meets these criteria set by the government. For many dental treatment can be an expensive investment. Many patients with great need of dental treatment simply cannot afford dental treatment because dental prices in Norway are so high. Many of these choose to receive dental treatment abroad instead. Now you can also get refunds on dental treatment done within the EEA (EØS). Read more about dental treatment abroad here.
Why are dental prices so high in Norway?
The fact that dental prices in Norway are so high and not covered by the government is a much discussed topic in Norway. The reason why dental prices in Norway are so high is because Norway is a high-cost country with an equivalent high price level and wage levels. You are not only paying for the dentist’s competence, you are also paying for expensive equipment, rent expenses, employee expenses, sanitation, repairs and maintenance of equipment, administration and accounting etc. The list is long nad has a lot to say for the dental prices in Norway as the dentist has to cover these expenses. However, the reason why dental treatment is not covered by the government is political.
