If you are currently employed and paying PRSI
If you are working 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
Also, Most of specialized dental treatments qualify for 20 % 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
- Periodontal treatment
- Surgical extraction of a Wisdom Tooth
