Dentistry in Dubai is, like most other medical services, of a high standard with prices to match. Standard health insurance packages don’t generally cover dentistry, unless it’s for emergency treatment brought about by an accident. You may be able to pay an additional premium to cover dentistry, but the insurer may first want proof that you’ve had regular, six-monthly check-ups for the previous two or three years.

If you have insurance, you’re entitled to basic dentistry at your assigned hospital, and if your hospital doesn’t have a dental section, they’ll refer you to a public hospital that does, such as Rashid Hospital. You will be charged Dhs.100 for the visit, as well as for any other services that are performed, such as cleaning and filling. Service is generally good, but the rates may not be any lower than at a private dental clinic.

For a standard filling you could be looking at paying anywhere between Dhs.100 and Dhs.1,000. If it is root canal treatment that you need, expect to part with anything from Dhs.600 to Dhs.3,000.
As well as routine and surgical dental treatment, cosmetic dentistry is also big business in Dubai, so if you’re looking for a smile make-over, there is plenty of choice.
