“Long Lines For Dental Care In Helsinki
"Up to 6200 people are in line to receive dental care in the county of Helsinki. The waiting time for care could be as long as half a year.
In acute cases a doctor’s appointment can be received on the same day, but that does not guarantee that treatment will begin in a reasonable amount of time.
Helsinki would require dozens of new dentist and dental assistant teams for waiting times to be reduced to a few weeks.
According to Helsinki’s Director of Dentistry Seppo Helminen, the dental care capacity of the city would be adequate for a city the size of Tampere.”
