At Smiles Dental, we want to help you get the full benefit of all your dental entitlements. Simply read below, or ask any of our front desk team how we can save you money.
If you are currently employed and paying PRSI
You may be entitled to certain treatments, which the Government will pay for on your behalf. The rules are very straight-forward and you can test your eligibility and find out what entitlements you may have at www.welfare.ie
If you are a holder of a valid Medical Card
There are certain Dental Treatments provided for you by the State. An annual examination and emergency treatments ie: fillings (up to 2), extractions and initial root canal treatment. For more information please go to www.hse.ie
Also, a number of specialised dental treatments qualify for tax relief. This means that you can offset the full cost of the treatment against your income tax liability. This is done by filling in a Med 2 form, which, when treatment is completed, our dentist will sign and submit on your behalf.
Treatments covered by the Med 2 include:
Root canal treatment
Surgical extraction of a Wisdom Tooth
