Hi girls, im just wondering if the dental benefit is still applicable? I norm go to my dentist and pay about €20.00, the rest they claim for me on my tax? Does anyone know if this was abolished? Have to go to dentist nxt week and dont have much money this month O:| , part of my tooth broke last night so i guess its a filling or extraction :o( I dont have a medical card. Thanks :wv

unfortunately in the dec 09 budget prsi contributions no longer entitle you to dental benefit. the only cover is once a yr for an examination. im almost sure of this but could b wrong. check with the dentist secretary. major dose. dental work is so expensive. i know i need to go but have been putting it off for a good few ive even more reason to put it off. hope this helps x
