Question:

hi dentists, I have been tasked by my parents to find out a long time from the bill comes to paying, the episode was following my papfar had to be to the dentist, and the used 3000,- with a treatment that was not completely finished, so you could say it was a mellembetaling, for the first part.
here the other day we saw the bill at the letter, and that we had then 3 days to pay so quickly we could not obtain 3000,- so wondered we if you do not have 14 days to pay in, from the time we receive the letter for it to be paid??? or what does the law say???

Answer:

Dear Lasse,

It seems that I have been made a kind of payment schedule with your dentist, and the agreement has In so of course have a duty to comply with.

As a general rule, you have to pay for a service when you receive this. You do not have any right to get something done on credit, and the dentist may even require advance payment or a bank guarantee, for the services you purchase from the dentist.

Has entered into an agreement with your dentist, where In ex. get bill home, or sent to, has the right to a reasonable deadline, so that you can reach in the bank or at the post office before the deadline. So the 3 days can be enough to be considered a reasonable period of time.

Most dentists have electronic medical record and bookkeeping systems, and in these systems indicates typically some standard values for payment m.m. So I wonder if your dentist would be willing to wait a few weeks on the payment, if In calling the dentist and honestly explains the situation. It would, I think, was worth a try. Personally, I have never said no to an honest inquiry of some weeks of further credit.

Question:

I've been at the dentist and get pulled 2 teeth out. A visdomstand in the mouth and the tooth just in front of the visdomstanden. Both teeth had grown out and the dentist removed them both with a pair of pliers, without having to cut first. On the bill I have been billed for 2x surgical removal, uncomplicated. Why is it not alm. the tooth extraction?

Cheaper to go to the dentist

The wise men of The Economic Council is now proposing that it should be cheaper to go to the dentist. In turn, the system must be financed by higher user fees when visiting a private doctor and the emergency room.

In the economic wise men efterårsrapport, which appeared 22. October 2009, gives the wise men their bid for a more equitable government support for healthcare.

“By splitting the brugerbetalingen out, you get less distortion of the state support. It is better to support two sites with 100 dollars than one place with 200 dollars, ” says a member of The Economic Council, Hans Jorgen Whitta-Jacobsen for Newspaq.

Avoid the dentist because of the price
Hans Jørgen Whitta-Jacobsen believes that some danes today fail to go to the dentist because it is too expensive, while there perhaps are too many, which caters to the emergency room – even with the small stuff – because it is free.

Hans Jørgen Whitta-Jacobsen, professor of economics, University of Copenhagen, stresses that the total user fees should not increase.

“Our recommendation is not to detract from the overall scope of user fees in the health sector. For it is a basic political premise,” he says.
