Some invoices are payable at the time of assessment and treatment and others are issued within two days of treatment and bills must be paid within five working days.
The Hospital normally issues reminders for unpaid amounts but our policy is to follow up with a debt collection service in respect of unpaid bills. Price lists are available from any of the reception areas.
You should discuss the cost of your dental treatment in advance with your dentist.
We accept the following methods of payment:
- Pay Online
- Debit card
- Cheque (Made payable to the Dublin Dental University Hospital)
- Credit cards (by phone or in person)
- Cash - at any reception point
- Standing order / Direct Debit

You can make a payment by any of these methods at any of our reception desks.
50% of the cost of dental treatment that requires laboratory work, dental implants and surgery work must be paid in advance. The remaining 50% must be paid before treatment is completed. Any other outstanding balance must also be paid when paying your deposit.
Fees for Accident and Emergency care must be paid in advance.
A deposit of 40% of the cost of orthodontic treatment must be paid at the start of treatment. The remaining 60% must be paid over the following six months.
While PRSI contributions/stamps do not provide cover for treatment in the Hospital, certain dental treatments do qualify for tax relief.
Treatments that qualify for tax relief include:
Surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth
Endodontics (root canal treatment)
