Primary dental care services to eligible patients are provided:
(a) in Health Service Clinics (HSE dental clinics)
(b) by private dental practitioners contracted to the Health Services
In effect children (under 16 years) are treated in HSE dental clinics and adults are treated by private practitioners in their own practices under arrangements with the health service.
Adults with special needs are also seen in HSE dental clinics if this is the most appropriate location for their dental care.
Orthodontic care is provided to eligible patients by a consultant led team. Only those children and adolescents assessed as meeting HSE Orthodontic Guidelines are eligible for secondary care orthodontic treatment.
