Med 2 Form – Patients be informed!!
Many patients are unaware that they can claim back 20% on most non-routine dentistry through a Med 2 Form. Simply ask us if your treatments qualify to claim your tax back and leave the filling out of your Med 2 up to us.
Why leave it unclaimed? It is your money for the taking!
Here is the list of the specific dental expenses you can claim tax back on below.
- Tip Replacing
- Post and Core Build ups
- Root canals
- Periodontal treatment
- Orthodontic treatment
- Surgical extraction of impacted wisdom teeth
How to Claim Tax Back On Qualifying Dental Expenses
To claim tax back for non-routine dental expenses your dentist must complete a Med 2 Form which is essentially a receipt for your dental expenses.
You do not need to send your Med 2 to Revenue, but you should keep it in your records. You may be requested to provide it if Revenue need to check your claim.
You then claim the dental expenses by claiming health expenses as usual at the end of the tax year and supplying the figure for dental expenses.
For more information see the Revenue website http://www.revenue.ie/en/personal-tax-credits-reliefs-and-exemptions/health-and-age/health-expenses/dental-expenses.aspx or the Citizens’ Information website http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/money_and_tax/tax/income_tax_credits_and_reliefs/taxation_and_medical_expenses.html

Many people are unaware that there are a number of tax reliefs that you can claim depending on the type of dental treatment you undergo.
Any individual claiming relief for non-routine dental treatment must hold a validated Med 2 Form (more information here). A member of our clinic’s reception team will be happy to organize this for you.
Dental Treatments for which Tax Relief is Allowable:
Dr. Bowe was honoured to meet former President Bill Clinton in November 2012 at the Entrepreneurs Conference in London, here he shares his memories of that lasting experience.
We are now stocking a number of our hygienist’s top recommended oral health products. We all know that trips to the dentist can result in costly treatments if you don’t look after your teeth properly in between check-ups so it’s important to invest in the best products for dental hygiene. Taking good care of your teeth means you are far less likely to suffer from cavities and gum disease. Brushing, flossing, and irrigating will help keep those visits as painless as possible so think about investing in the best products for dental hygiene the next time you visit our clinic for your next appointment. Our hygienist or any of our team will be able to advise you on which products will suit you best.
We love receiving testimonials from our satisfied clients and recently received this lovely one from Maria O’Donoghue outlining how she felt that her dental problems were holding her back and why she decided to visit Bowe Dental Clinic in order to finally have the smile she has always wanted.
We hear reasons like this about why people are nervous about visiting the dentist on a daily basis. We understand that many people have a “fear” of dentists due to poor treatments or bad experiences they may have received in the past but advances in dentistry and patient care have come on so much in the last 20-30 years that a visit to the dentist these days is nothing to be nervous about so we are delighted to hear that Maria finally bit the bullet and decided to seek treatment with us and ended up being another one of our satisfied and SMILING clients!
