Outsourced dental care service
The Western Uusimaa Wellbeing Services County Oral Health Services also provide dental care as an outsourced service in Espoo, Kirkkonummi, Karkkila, Vihti, and Lohja. An outsourced service is an alternative to the services that are provided directly by the Wellbeing Services County.
An outsourced service may be granted to clients aged 18 or older whose needs for treatment can be covered by the treatments available as outsourced services. The Western Uusimaa Wellbeing Services County determines the scope of the outsourced service and selects the service providers (i.e., the private dental clinics) for outsourced services. For clients, the price of dental care is the same as it would be at the Wellbeing Services County’s own dental clinics.
A Development Initiative in Dental Health Care Services
Dental Health Care Services drives a development initiative to improve the model of purchasing services from the private sector. The development initiative takes place between September and November 2023. The number of appointments at private clinics offered within this initiative is limited.
Several private clinics are participating this initiative. Customers are appointed to these private clinics as they make their appointments either through online-services platform or through call-center-services.
