Don’t forget your medical card

Tuesday, 21st May, 2019

Here at Navan Dental, your dentist Meath, we happily welcome medical card holders as patients. When you have a medical card, you are entitled to some services for free. Let's take a look at what you can get as a medical card holder.

Services for medical card holders

If you are aged over 16 and have a medical card from the Dental Treatment Services Scheme (DTSS), then you can have a free check-up every year. You can also have 2 fillings a year and any extractions you might need. Emergency dental appointments are also free, so there's no need to suffer in pain until your next check-up.

Beyond the basics

You will probably need to pay for everything else, unless you are a patient with special needs, or are a high-risk patient or have greater clinical needs. Even then, you will need to get approval from the local principal dental officer with the HSE.

Paid-for treatments

We try to keep prices low for everyone at our dentist Meath. And we offer a great range of services for every age.

Children generally need preventive treatments to stop them getting tooth decay when their young teeth are at their most vulnerable. We also have a braces dentist Meath, so you can make sure your children grow up with lovely straight teeth that are easy to look after.

Adults these days want great smiles, so we make sure we have a good range of cosmetic dentistry treatments, from whitening, to veneers to tooth contouring and white fillings.

As you get older, you'll want to know more about ways to hang on to teeth, like strengthening with crowns, and, later, how to replace them. We offer fixed bridgework, full or partial dentures and also dental implants.

Sometimes you have other problems. Perhaps you grind your teeth at night or suffer from jaw joint problems. We have ways to treat both of these issues.

At our dentist Meath, we also understand that some people get anxious about appointments and we offer ways to relax during treatment.

Want to know more? Why not drop in and see us? We'd love to meet you.
