HSE Logo*January 2023* Are you looking for a dentist in Navan or in County Meath that CURRENTLY accepts NEW Medical Card Patients?

At Navan Dental, we welcome new Medical Card patients to the practice for both emergency and routine dental care. It is currently very difficult to find a dentist in Navan or County Meath that is taking on new Medical Card patients, but here at Navan Dental, we currently have capacity to see new Medical Card patients, and we are very proud to be able to continue to offer this availability.

The Medical Card or Dental Treatment Services Scheme (DTSS) provides access to free dental treatment for adult medical card - holders, aged 16 years of age and over.

With your medical card, you can avail of: 

  • 1 FREE DENTAL CHECK UP per calendar year
  • 1 FREE scale and polish/clean with a dentist per calendar year
  • 2 FREE fillings per calendar year
  • Root canal treatment on front teeth upon approval by the HSE
  • Dentures every 5 years upon approval by the HSE
  • Unlimited dental extractions
  • FREE prescriptions

At Navan Dental, we can check to see if you are covered on the medical card scheme, in advance of your appointment at the practice, by simply contacting us and providing us with you PPS number and date of birth.


Most other treatments require prior approval from the Local Principal Dental Officer with the HSE.  Approval is currently being restricted to patients with special needs, high - risk patients and those who have greater clinical needs.

Children under 16 with medical cards are eligible to be seen in their local HSE Dental Clinic.

The majority of our dentists at Navan Dental provide treatment under the Medical Card Scheme, meaning that there is greater availability of suitable and flexible times for your appointment.

If you have any further queries, then please do not hesitate to contact our reception team at Navan Dental, and we will be more than happy to accommodate you.
