Medical Card

HSE Logo

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.

A free oral examination or check-up is available every calendar year, and free emergency dental treatment for relief of pain and infection are available to all eligible patients at Navan Dental.  This includes 2 fillings per year, and all extractions. 


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.
