Are your family dental costs adding up?

The cost of braces can really add up, particularly if you have more than one child requiring this form of treatment. On average, orthodontic treatment can cost upwards of €3,000** depending on the dental practice so if you have three children requiring braces, you could end up paying at least €9,000 for orthodontic care. However, with Dental Insurance through Cornmarket you will be covered for up to €1,000 on a level 3 plan and up to €750 on a level 2 plan for the cost of this treatment. There is an 18 month waiting period for orthodontics. Member must be between age 8 and age 18 to avail of this.

Cover for everyday dental treatment:

What’s more, dental insurance costs for every day treatment such as check-ups, x-rays and extractions can really add up. The table below demonstrates the cost of treatment and the refund you would get back if you had Dental Insurance through Cornmarket (refund based on DeCare’s TeamCare Access Level 3 plan which is available at €31.23 per month).

*Waiting periods apply to basic and major treatments. Dental Insurance is underwritten by DeCare Dental Insurance Ireland DAC. DeCare Dental Insurance Ireland DAC trading as DeCare Dental is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. **Price information sourced from Smiles Dental,1st of August 2018.
