Know your entitlements

 

Most Irish/EU adults are entitled to a free dental check up each calendar year.

There are two schemes in operation in Ireland.

PRSI

If you are an employee or self employed and are paying PRSI contributions you can check if you are covered for a free dental and oral health examination and subsidised periodontal treatment by either phoning the Dept of Social and Family Affairs on 1890400400 or giving us a ring on 0578662111 and we can check on line for you. There is more information on this scheme here.

The scheme has been expanded to cover the self employed since March 27th 2017. We will still need to check if you are qualified for the treatment, you must provide your PPS number when booking your appointment. Since November 2017 we have access to a secure Welfare Partners portal where they advise us of your eligibility. If there are any queries regarding your application they will notify you in writing and advise us that your query is pending. Unfortunately this online verification facility is not available to dependent spouses.

Medical Card Scheme

If you hold a full medical card you are entitled to a free dental and oral health examination each calendar year. There are also a range of other entitlements, more information on this scheme can be found here.

Tax relief

Only certain dental treatments are allowable for tax relief. More details can be found on the Revenue website here.

If you have any queries, please feel free to give us a call on 057 8662111 and we will try and answer your query.
