Like many children of his age, Max, age 11, has to wear dental braces. While statutory compensation payable by the national Illness-Disability insurance (INAMI/RIZIV) is certainly welcome, it only covers a portion of the costs. Getting braces fitted, maintenance, appointments with the orthodontist… all costs that can be claimed back through dental insurance.

Which option to select?
Getting fitted for dental braces is often very expensive.
Dental Flex dental insurance covers up to €1,250 for this type of cost. A big share of the costs for Max’s braces can be claimed back and the insurance will cover maintenance for the braces in the years to come. For Julie, a dental plan seems to be the most suitable solution.
