Patients who work and pay PRSI can be eligible to a free dental examination every 12 months. This will enable those qualified to a free dental screening, which includes the detection of caries, periodontal disease and Oral cancers.
Some dental treatments can be claimed against tax. Routine dental treatment is not included, only more elaborate treatments including Crowns, Bridges, Root canal treatment and periodontal treatment. 20% tax back can be claimed after these treatments using a Med 2 tax relief form, which can be endorsed at the dental surgery.
