In Slovenia, dental care is generally not covered by the compulsory health insurance and is mostly paid out-of-pocket. However, certain procedures and treatments can be covered under the compulsory health insurance if they are deemed necessary. These include:

  • Basic dental examinations
  • Certain preventive services
  • Treatment of oral diseases and conditions
  • Dental surgery in certain cases
  • Orthodontic treatment for persons under 18 years of age
  • Prosthetic dental services for persons under 18 years of age and in certain other cases

For other procedures, such as cosmetic dentistry, more complex orthodontic treatments, and most prosthetic services, patients usually need to pay out-of-pocket or have a supplementary health insurance that covers these costs.
