We need to let you know that our dentists have made the difficult decision to resign from the medical card scheme as it is no longer financially viable. Our practice will therefore no longer be accepting new medical card patients. For existing medical card patients, we will of course complete any outstanding treatment plans but will not be able to start any new treatments going forward.
Since we reopened our doors after lockdown there is a need for additional PPE to meet the safety standards required. Global demand during the pandemic has also increased the cost for PPE significantly. The Government is not providing PPE for medical card treatments and unfortunately it is not possible for us to cover the additional cost whilst ensuring the practice remains open to treat patients in the long term.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you. For more information, click here.
Tax refunds through a Med 2 form are available for certain treatments and are supplied in the practice at the end of treatment. We try our best to see emergency patients on the day. We welcome New, PRSI and Private patients. Please note that these fees are a guideline and will be confirmed after examination.
