Cant find a dentist in my area

    Hi everyone, so recently just got my medical card which i was super excited about because now I can get all the dental work ive been desperately needing for years, however, cannot find a dentist in Wexford (where i live), or any that does accept medical card, have full patient lists. I already contacted HSE to get a list of participating practices.

    What should i do? Is it best to try other dentists in other counties?

    The bad news is you will probably face the same situation in every county in Ireland, the number of practices accepting medical card patients is limited.

    Another downside of the scheme is that if you can find a practice to take you on, you will be restricted to just 2 fillings per year, but can have unlimited extractions.

    The HSE clinics are supposed to provide emergency cover for adult patients that are unable to access the scheme but this is also very patchy on a regional basis.
