Hello and welcome again. Thank you for your follow up reply.

YES, you will be able to claim relief in your tax. Note that you do not get any relief for routine dental care. Routine dental treatment covers extractions, scaling and filling of teeth and provision and repairing of artificial teeth and dentures. However, the following dental treatments do qualify for tax relief:
- Veneers/Rembrant type etched fillings
- Tip replacing
- Gold posts
- Gold inlays
- Endodontics (root canal treatment)
- Periodontal treatment
- Orthodontic treatment
- Surgical extraction of impacted wisdom teeth: this qualifies for tax relief when it is undertaken in hospital.
Having said this, note tht Irish Laws provide that you can claim tax relief on medical expenses incurred by yourself, your spouse, dependent children or dependent relatives, as long as you have not already been reimbursed, or are entitled to be reimbursed, for the costs by a health board or a medical insurer, such as the VHI or BUPA Ireland.
