Routine dental treatments such as fillings and extractions are not eligible for tax relief however

How to claim
To claim relief you need to request a completed Med 2 Form from your dentist. You need to keep this for your own records should Revenue need to check it.
You can also claim for non-routine dental treatment received outside of Ireland, provided the dentist is a qualified dentistry practitioner and completes a Med 2 form, which you can print off www.revenue.ie and bring with you
