Dental Services for Children 

There are no walk in dental emergency clinics operating at this time. 

Emergency treatment is available:

  •  to all children up to the eve of their 16 birthday
  •  at any HSE dental clinic open on the day. Parents/guardians must phone their local clinic or  01 795 6146 by 9.15 am to register the patient. They will then be advised which clinic to attend. Please phone first, but be available to attend straight away. It may not be possible to respond on the same day to calls received later than 9.15 am.

The definition of urgent dental care includes uncontrolled bleeding, severe pain, trauma, abnormal tissue, abscess and swelling.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dental service for all patients is significantly disrupted. This means that there will be delays in getting routine appointments. We do not know how long this delay will be. The dental service is working continually to deal with this situation as best we can.

All special schools for children are screened annually and children are then referred to their local clinic for any necessary treatment.

Dental Services for Adults 

Dental Services for adults with medical cards are available from dentists who have contracts with the HSE to provide dental treatment through the Dental Treatment Services Scheme (DTSS). Further information and lists of contracted dentists are available at HSE dental clinics or by calling 01 795 5963.

Adults with special needs may be assessed in residential or day centres, with follow up treatment provided in HSE clinics or by DTSS dentists.
