Your initial consultation fee (€65.00-€85.00) must be paid on the day of your appointment before you see the dentist. This applies in all departments. Other invoices should be paid on the day of treatment, if possible or alternatively within five working days. Some treatments may require deposits to be paid to secure either surgery dates or process laboratory work. Fees for Accident and Emergency care must be paid in advance.
Please discuss this with your dentist.

The Hospital requires a deposit in advance to secure a surgery appointment. This deposit amount will be listed on the appointment letter. Generally this deposit will be 50% however this can increase depending on the treatment. The full surgery fee is required in advance for dental implant surgical treatments. Should you have any arrears at this time, they are also required to be paid in full.
A deposit of 40% of the overall cost of orthodontic treatment must be paid at the start of treatment. The remaining 60% must be paid over the following six months from the date of the issue of the invoice.
