You do not always need to go to the clinic. A video appointment is an easy and secure way to get help or advice. We at Espoo’s Oral Health Services are piloting the use of video appointments as a way to serve our clients. We may ask for your opinion on the service after you have used it. 

At the moment, we are offering the following video appointments:

  • periodic oral health care appointments at 1 and 3 years of age
  • oral health counselling appointments for families expecting their first child

​Use the online appointment booking system to book a video appointment. Log in using your online banking codes, certificate card or mobile ID. Log in to the same system to join your video appointment.

You need a device that includes a camera and a microphone. Quick guide to video appointments

Periodic oral health care appointments at 1 and 3 years of age

If you have no particular concerns about your child’s oral health, the periodic check-up may also be conducted as a video appointment. The periodic oral health check-up contains:

  • An assessment of the state of the child’s oral health, development and need for treatment
    • if your child needs a clinical examination, we will book them an appointment at a dental clinic*
  • An overview of oral hygiene and health habits
  • A personal health plan (if needed)
  • Advice on oral hygiene and good health practices 

Duration: about 30 minutes

Oral health counselling appointments for families expecting their first child

Pregnancy is an excellent time to learn about the child’s oral health and care because children easily adopt their parents’ habits when it comes to health, nutrition and oral care. The video appointment will help the new parents establish good health habits and together we can assess their need for treatment. We can also book them an appointment at a dental clinic, if needed.*

Duration: about 30 minutes

* Non-urgent care (such as check-ups) is not available at the dental clinics during the coronavirus pandemic. When non-urgent appointments can be booked again, we will announce it on our website.
