Orthodontic Treatment FAQs
The HSE dentist says my child does not need braces but I feel his teeth need braces and I can't afford to pay in full. Could you give me some advice?
Other Options could include:
- You could contact a private orthodontist and ask for a quote for the work needed which you may be able to claim tax relief on.
- The Dental Benefits Section of the Department of Social and Family Affairs (01 704 3000) will advise you of your entitlements.
- Alternatively if you have private health insurance there may be an option to claim for orthodontic treatment on that.
