If You Pay PRSI Contributions, You May Be Entitled To A Dental Exam, Scale & Polish, For Only €15

 

Smile Hub Dental Clinic is a registered provider of The Treatment Benefit Scheme, which entitles PRSI workers to claim a free oral examination once a calendar year, as well as a subsidised scale & polish (dental professional cleaning) for only €15.

The Treatment Benefit Scheme is run by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. It provides dental, optical and aural services to insured workers, the self-employed and retired people who have the required number of social insurance (PRSI) contributions.

 

To qualify, you must have paid class A, E, P, H or S social insurance (PRSI) contributions. The amount of social insurance you need depends on your age.

 

If your spouse, civil partner or cohabitant does not have enough social insurance contributions, he/she may still qualify for Treatment Benefit on your social insurance record. To do this, you must qualify for Treatment Benefit and your spouse, civil partner or cohabitant must be dependent on you.

 

To check if you qualify for treatment, contact Smile Hub Dental Clinic. You will need to provide the following details:

  • Personal Public Service (PPS) Number
  • Date of birth
  • Consent/ signature

 

Visiting your dentist every 6 months for a check-up is important to ensure that any issues are detected early, before they become bigger and often expensive problems. Regular cleaning of the teeth by a dental professional is also essential to remove plaque and tartar, both above and below the gumline, eliminating bacteria that lead to cavities, bad breath and gum disease.

How can I check if I have PRSI Dental entitlements?

Call Smile Hub Dental Practice and a member of our friendly dental team will check your eligibility on your behalf. We will require your consent to do so, your PPSN and date of birth.

  • If your claim is “approved“, you will be eligible for an Exam, Scale & Polish within the calendar year for only €15.
  • If your claim is “pending“, it may mean that a large volume of checks are being processed by the site at the time, or that your eligibility requires further checks by a welfare administrator. In this case, we will be obliged to charge full private fees on the day of your appointment. If/when we receive confirmation of your eligibility, we will reimburse the excess, so that you can still avail of an Exam, Scale & Polish for €15.
  • If your claim is “not approved“, you can still choose to make an appointment privately.

What are my PRSI Dental Benefits?

The following dental benefits are available to insured workers, the self-employed and retired people who have the required number of social insurance (PRSI) contributions:

  • A full oral examination once a calendar year
  • A subsidised dental scale & polish (cost of €15)
  • OR alternatively, a part-subsidised “Protracted Periodontal Treatment”. This is a deep cleaning, often carried out under local anaesthetic, where a regular scale & polish would not be sufficient to restore optimum gum health

 

These entitlements are available to those eligible once per calendar year. This means that you may claim once between 1st January and 31st December each year, not once every twelve months.

If I didn’t claim my PRSI entitlements last year can I claim them this year?

No unfortunately these benefits are only available once per calendar year from January to December
