Dental care

The Dental Care Centre (Folktandvården) in Torsby is situated next to the municipal office. It welcomes both adults and children. If you need an interpreter during your visit to the dentist, please let us know when booking your appointment.

Dental care is free of charge in Sweden for children up to 19 years old who are registered as a resident in Sweden. As an adult, you pay a large part of the dental care yourself, but you will often receive financial support from the state. Foreign residents usually pay the whole or a large part of the sum themselves.

You are free to choose your own dentist. Apart from the Folktandvården, there are also private dentists.
