GMS Medical Card Dental Scheme – DTSS

The HSE has effectively abandoned all routine dental treatment under the medical card scheme.

Treatment available under the medical card is now limited to the following:

  • One examination per calender year.
  • Two emergency fillings in one calender year.
  • Extractions if clinical neccessity.


NOTE – From 1st October 2010 a charge of €1.50 per prescription is payable.

Emergency 1st Stage root-treatment of one of the front six upper or lower teeth.

NOTE – Approval is necessary for completion of the root filling. "Emergency dentures" are supposedly available but this phrase has no dental meaning and it is unclear what criteria the HSE plans to use to restrict the provision of such dentures.

NOTE – Dentures are now available under the Medical Card Scheme. Subject to approval by the Principle Dental Officer.
