There no such thing as NHS dental treatment in the Canary Islands. All dental work is charged privately, therefore, if you value your gnashers, want to keep them in prestine condition and give your best dazzling smile, it is recommendable that you take out dental insurance to obtain discounted rates on dental treatment.

For example:
  • A filling would cost you around 54.00€ with no insurance / with insurance 27.00€
  • A metal or porcelain crown would cost you 316.00€ no insurance / with insurance 158.00€
  • Titanium implant would cost you 990.00€ with no insurance / with insurance 495.00€
I think you get the idea! 

Using Optima Adeslas's own dental professional clinics you can obtain up to 50% discount on treatments or using partnered dentists to Adeslas up to 35%. Optima can also provide finance plans for your dental treatments.

These are just some of the 26 free dental services:
  • Consultation
  • Check-up
  • Emergency consultation
  • Dental cleaning tartrectomy
  • Oral hygiene education
  • Fluoride treatment session
  • Occlusal sealants (per tooth)
  • Dental x-rays
  • Dental Panoramic *
  • Lateral/frontal cranial teleradiography *
  • Pulp protection

Dental insurance for as little as 10.50€ per month or 8.93€ if you have health insurance as well. For 3+ people 19.00€ p.m. or 16.50€ with health insurance. Maximum of 6 people per dental policy. You can put 6 of your family or friends on the policy for only 3.16€ each per month! ;-)

Home content insurance

Sound advice from Yoda....

If you are renting from a landlord/home owner, please be aware that you are not covered for your own personal contents under the landlord's home insurance. I cannot prevent loss of your prized possessions through theft, fire, floods....but, help you I can!
