1 Examination Per Calendar year
€42 towards a dental scale and polish per calendar year
Under the PRSI scheme, the Department pays the full cost of an oral examination once a calendar year.
A payment of €42 towards either a scale or polish or – if clinically necessary – periodontal treatment, is also available once a calendar year. If the cost of either cleaning or periodontal treatment is more than €42, you must pay the balance – capped at €15 for a scale and polish. There is no cap on the balance charged for periodontal treatment.
If you are a dependent spouse or civil partner, you should give the PPS number of the insured person.
If you are self-employed you may also qualify under the PRSI for the above treatment.
Please call the practice with you PPSN Number to find out if you are qualified.
