Our new dental insurance options will keep your teeth in tip-top shape.

We’ve got some news that will put a smile on your face: Feather dental insurance is here

If you’ve been keeping up with our posts, you already know that public health insurance can leave a lot to be desired when it comes to dental coverage. Breaking a tooth, getting a root canal or even getting regular dental cleanings can cost you hundreds of euros a year—even if you’re insured by a Krankenkasse (public health fund). 

Luckily, our dental insurance is here to save the day with top-of-the-line coverage and some great “extras” to keep your pearly whites looking and feeling their best. 

Who is dental insurance for?

To put it simply: anyone with teeth. Okay, okay, that was a bit cheeky. But really—dental problems (and particularly tooth replacement treatments like crowns and bridges) can put a big hole in your wallet. Having a good dental insurance plan can help you avoid unexpected costs and maintain a regular preventive care routine. 

Feather’s dental insurance plan is intended as a supplementary policy for people on public insurance. So if you’re insured by TK, AOK, BARMER, DAK, or any other Krankenkasse, then you’re eligible to join this plan. 

What’s covered?

Feather has two levels of dental coverage: Basic and Advanced. Both provide great benefits to supplement existing public health insurance coverage, including full coverage for teeth cleanings—a value of €200 alone if you get two cleanings a year.

The main advantages of the Advanced policy are that it covers all or most of tooth replacement costs, as well as tooth whitening. Basic does not cover either of these treatments. 

Here’s how coverage compares:
