PRSI Entitlements

Dental Insurance, Medical Card Holder & Tax Relief

Dental Care Ireland understands that the cost of dental treatments is important to our patients. We are committed to offering value to our patients in our local family dental practices throughout the country whether thorough; private plans, PRSI dental entitlements, medical card or insurance provider.

Medical Card Holders

Adults (over 16 years of age) who have a valid medical card can access a range of dental services and treatments under the Dental Treatment Service Scheme.

All medical card holders are entitled to specific dental treatments e.g.,

  • A dental examination
  • Two fillings in each calendar year
  • Extractions as necessary

Some treatments such as the provision of dentures require the approval of the HSE before the dentist can proceed and in this case, the dentist applies directly to the HSE.

Additional treatments for example, teeth cleaning are available to those persons with specific medical conditions and again, your dentist will be able to advise you of your entitlement if this is the case. The HSE dental section may require written documentation outlining your medical condition and/or medications from your G.P. or other relevant medical person.

For more information, check out the HSE website.
