PRSI Entitlements

Approximately two million people in Ireland pay PRSI, but surprisingly only 25% of those eligible claim their entitlements of an Exam, Scale and Polish.

It is important to note that not all dentists are registered providers of the PRSI dental scheme but if they are, you should be entitled to claim an annual free check-up, as well as a subsidised Scale and Polish (cleaning) for €15.

Visiting your dentist at least once a year 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.

The Treatment Benefit Scheme is run by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) and provides dental, optical and aural services to qualified people. The Treatment Benefit Scheme is available to insured workers, the self-employed and retired people who have the required number of PRSI contributions.
Under the Treatment Benefit Scheme, you may qualify for:

• Dental benefit
• Optical benefit
• Hearing aids

There is a number of criteria for claiming PRSI entitlements the main one being, you must have paid Class A, E, P, H or S social insurance contributions. The amount of social insurance you need depends on your age.

A spouse, civil partner or cohabitant may, of course, qualify in their own right if they have enough social insurance contributions. 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.

How do I Check if I’m Eligible?

Call us at Dame Street Dental where one of our receptionists will check on the Welfare Partners website to see if you are eligible for an Exam, Scale and Polish for €15. In order for us to find out if you are eligible, our receptionist will require your consent to check, your PPSN and date of birth.

There are three results that can come from this check; approved, pending and not approved.

• If your claim is “approved“, you will be able to claim your Exam, Scale and Polish for that calendar year for only €15.
• If your claim is “pending“, this can be for a number of reasons such as; large volume of checks being processed by the site at the time, or it can be that your eligibility requires further checks by a welfare administrator. This may also mean we are unsure of eligibility prior to your appointment. As a result of this, we will be obliged to charge you full private fees on the day of your appointment. If/when we receive confirmation of your eligibility we will reimburse you the excess paid for the private fee, meaning you get your Exam, Scale and Polish for €15.
• If your claim is “not approved“, we can still make you an appointment privately if you wish. All our practices are accepting new patients and would be more than happy to accommodate you.

*Please note that PRSI entitlements can only be claimed with selected general dentists. If you wish to claim your PRSI entitlements please note it at the time of booking.

Testimonials

I cannot recommend this place enough! I was booked in short notice for an examination yesterday after 3 days of excruciating pain. From the moment I checked in at reception I was filled with such ease. I haven’t attended a dental practice in 2 years after an AWFUL wisdom tooth extraction with my local dentist. I met with Dr. Shirin and his lovely assistant who made my whole experience phenomenal. I had explained how nervous I was due to my last experience and I just felt completely heard and understood. They both did everything they could to keep me at ease and talked me through absolutely everything. I had my wisdom tooth extracted which was completely pain free this time, Dr. Shirin took the time out to ensure I couldn’t feel anything and throughout the extraction told me when I would feel pressure and helped me manage my breathing. After my previous extraction I was off work for 2+ weeks and left the clinic inconsolable, with Dame Street Dental I left laughing, smiling and chatting pain free and feel well enough to return to work tomorrow! I really cannot recommend this place enough, I will never attend another dental clinic again and for the first time ever I am looking forward to my next visit,Thank you Dame Street Dental!!!

Dr. Ksenija Was very good and gentle. She explained every step when I had my wisdom tooth extracted. Staff was brilliant and very kind too. Will definitely recommend.

For someone who’s been anxious about the dentist for years, I’d just like to say how lovely it was coming in for a checkup. Dr Lisa Boland and her colleagues were very warm and welcoming from the start. They explained exactly what was happening and gave me a comprehensive treatment plan laying out a timeline and costs for the future. I would wholly recommend Dr Boland and the clinic to anyone who may have any fears or anxieties about going to the dentist.

I attended Dame Street Dental for an examination and a filling. All the staff here are exceptionally friendly. Dr. Alison Quirke was my dentist and she was absolutely brilliant in terms of her professionalism, empathy and, care. She talked me through the entire process and really set me at ease: yes, I was nervous beforehand. Alison’s team were also excellent: loved the playlist in the background. Overall, one the most professional (and enjoyable actually) experiences at a dentist. Thank you so much. Dr. Seamus Kelly.

Great dental clinic, recommend it to everyone. Special thanks to dr. Mohammed Abed for being patient with me and explaining every move.
Bernard Ljekaj
Really quick and warm service. Deducting a star as I was asked if I wanted x-rays as it's free with my examination, but was later asked to pay it. A bit uncertain if it's an honest mistake or a scam operation, so just deducting one star for it as I was reimbursed after asking.
