Has anyone had any experience with a Dr. Michaela Skrein in the 1st district? Apparantely she is good, but I have heard her prices are a bit on the high side (for example I heard she charges e115 for teeth cleaning. She is a private dentist though so maybe that makes the difference.June 24, 2011 at 7:31 am #1923gemmaannaMember
If nobody’s diagnosed your wisdom teeth problem yet, have you thought of getting private dental insurance before you visit the dentist? Might work out cheapest. A friend of mine recently had €9000 of dental treatment which was covered by a few hundred euros of insurance.
I know a lot of people have good experiences in Hungary, but you do hear some scare stories too.August 18, 2011 at 10:44 am #1973HimeMember
As frida said, when you have e-card, then it is free of charge.
2 months back or so, my wisdom tooth was hurting so much so I went to my dentist, and he pulled it out right away (even though I didn’t want to – but he said it was necessary).
I think everyone who have a job in Austria can get an ecard… but I am not so sure. I am married to my husband who is an Austrian citizen, so I never had problem medical wise. (Immigration on the other hand… 🙄 )August 18, 2011 at 5:42 pm #1974wienerMember
So pulling out wisdom teeth is free of charge? What about just an ache in the place where there is a filling and this would probably need to be changed?
I am still waiting for my e-card. It has been already month since I applied for one. Does it take that long? There they said few weeks or so. Should I be worried?August 19, 2011 at 12:54 pm #1976HimeMember

If I remembered correctly, it took a month for me as well. Hmm… my insurance is under WGKK and I was able to get a paper slip from them to use in the stead of the ecard (since I was sick and my card still didn’t arrive). I received it a week after that.December 7, 2011 at 5:39 pm #2017WienAMember
Himes do you know if a clean is free on the card.
I was told that it is not entirely free though because the insurance fees go up (but I have not confirmed this)
How is your German going?December 7, 2011 at 7:32 pm #2018siuMember
From what was told to me, teeth cleaning is not covered under WGKK.
Someone please correct me if this is wrong.December 7, 2011 at 9:08 pm #2019WienAMember

Dentist Torrance will always advice you to do two times brushing in a proper manner and make your mouth fresh after eating food or something other.; you can consult him for more suggestions regarding the proper health care of your mouth.August 22, 2012 at 10:29 pm #2168kavinMember

I guess they pay for Zahnsteinentfernung, NOT Zahnreinigung, BUT plaque removal 1/yr inkl. check-up is covered.
i would not recommend Hungary… The quality is not good. Unless you really really have a good recommendation.
Recommendation from whom??
the one i have in vienna is so great that i would never ever experiment with hungary. they gave me a consultation in hungary and i was not impressed. everything is relative, if you had a bad experience in Vienna, then of course hungary will seem great.
and vice-versa.August 22, 2012 at 10:43 pm #2169blueorangeMember

I realize this reply is many years late, but I benefited from it when I had to see a doctor this morning as a private patient.
I went to Dr. Anton Fuhrmann in 1150 this morning with a chipped front tooth. Together with anesthesia (EUR 15) and white filling, it was EUR163.
However, and unrelated to the question, the doctor kept asking (at least 4 times) me to confirm, before he even began treatment, that I had the cash to pay. I don’t know if it’s the English, the face, the ethnicity or what it was that he didn’t trust about me, but I felt rather offended about this.
The work was swift and efficient. However I was surprised to see that at the end of it, my front tooth looked chipped. Half of the tooth was short and the other half longer. It also felt sharp to the tongue. I asked why did he leave this edge on the tooth, to which he defensively answered “it is your own tooth (‘s fault)”.
I was more than happy and relieved to receive prompt treatment to my emergency, and the EUR163 was okay. But felt the treatment was selective.May 10, 2018 at 10:02 am #6844
