Patients covered by PRSI are entitled to a free examination every year. There is a tax refund of 20% available for advanced dental treatments, including gum treatment visits to the hygienist, which we will organise for you. We can also offer further discounts on multiple treatments as well as flexible payment options for advanced work.
Patients who are covered under the PRSI scheme now include the self-employed. They are entitled to one free examination each year, a scale and polish for €15 or a €42 discount on a trip to the hygienist. These benefits are available once per calender year.
Medical Card Scheme
Patients who have a general Medical Card are entitled to numerous free treatment options:
• One Free examination per year.
• Two free fillings per year.
• Free extractions.
• Free prescriptions.
A standard scale and polish is not covered by the medical card scheme. It may be possible to provide some other treatments such as gum treatment, dentures and root canal treatment in front teeth if they meet the criteria set down by the HSE. It takes time for this application process to happen. We can discuss all of this at the examination appointment.
Many of the dental procedures we carry out such as crowns, veneers and implants qualify for tax relief at the standard rate. At the end of treatment, we will provide and help complete a Med 2 form which you can use to claim your 20% tax relief.
