Dental entitlements

Your Dental Entitlements

As a patient of Killarney Dental you may qualify for certain allowances and benefits for your dental care.

Under this scheme, the Department of Social Protection pays the full cost of an oral examination once per calendar year (1st January to 31st December).

The Dental Treatment Benefit Scheme is available to insured workers and retired people who have the required number of PRSI contributions.

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:

  • Orthodontics
  • Bridges
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Root canal treatment
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Surgical extraction of a Wisdom Tooth

A Med 2 form for tax allowable treatments is provided at the end of all relevant treatment.
