First of all, please note that the TAJ-card only covers basic dental treatment, such as examination, filling, treatment of palate problems, removal of tartar, etc. It doesn’t cover more expensive and complex things (orthodontics, false teeth, root canal treatment, etc.).
This means that you have a local dentist based on address (just like the GP) – but they only do the basic things. If you need complex treatment they will send you to a private specialist. To visit your dentist you always need an appointment: it can be booked by calling the dentist’s assistant. As most assistants don’t speak English, you will probably need some help with it – in this case you can contact us at email@example.com. If you send us an email, always include the following information:
- your full name,
- your gender,
- your mother’s FULL maiden name,
- your exact address, according to your address card (including 4-digit postal code),
- your TAJ number,
- the expiry date of your TAJ card,
- your Neptun code,
- your phone number,
- your date of birth,
- your place of birth,
- your nationality,
- a screenshot of your class schedule/timetable (from Neptun, or your own calendar), and
- a detailed description of your dental issue.
Here you can find the data of some local dentists, otherwise you can ask for help to find your own local dentist:

Availability of dentists outside office hours
If you need to see a dentist with an urgent problem when yours is not available or can’t give appointment soon enough, then you can go to the closest dental clinic. At these clinics there is always one dentist on duty (“Felvételes orvos”) who accepts the emergency cases without appointment during opening hours. There they can provide painkilling and temporary treatment until you can see your own dentist.
For district no. 11 this place is Szent Kristóf clinic (at 1117 Budapest, Fehérvári út 12, on the 3rd floor), which is open only on weekdays from 8:00 to 20:00 (with a lunch break at 13:00-14:00).
If you urgently need to see a dentist during the weekend, there is one place in Budapest where you can go: the dental clinic of Semmelweis Medical University at 1088 Budapest, Szentkirályi u. 40, which is open non-stop. (It’s the same place which is responsible for Corvin dorm, see more information there.
