Orthodontic fees

Orthodontic fees

The overall fee for your orthodontic treatment depends on several factors, such as the complexity of care and the anticipated duration of treatment. Dr. Geoghegan creates your orthodontic treatment plan according to your needs and, because no two treatment plans are identical, costs may vary from patient to patient.

Cost

Before we begin the full treatment process with each patient, we outline in detail to you what the total fee will be for your specific treatment. There are no surprises and you know exactly what you will be paying.

At SOP, we take great care when recommending the most suitable treatment options for you or your child. It is a four-stage process and here is an outline of the costs involved:

Stage 1: Pre-consultation appointment – no cost

If you would like some gratis Information and Advice on what treatment options are available to you and the likely costs of these treatments, please contact SOP where our dedicated treatment co-ordinator will be able to answer all your questions. We will also outline the duration of the treatment process and what the treatment process entails for your particular circumstances.

Stage 2: Specialist Orthodontic Consultation – €150

If you are happy to proceed to the next stage, we will schedule a Specialist Orthodontic Consultation for you with Dr. Geoghegan. The cost of this consultation is €150 and includes all records and x-rays which are required for a comprehensive diagnosis and full treatment planning. This fee will be deducted from the overall treatment cost if you decide to proceed with orthodontic treatment.

Stage 3: Treatment Journey

As indicated, the cost of your treatment will be specific to your orthodontic needs. As a guide, the cost of treatments at SOP start from:

  • Fixed appliances from €2600 (single arch)
  • Fixed appliances from €3600 (both arches)
  • Clear aligners from €3600
  • Functional appliances from €1200
  • Lingual appliances from €5600

Stage 4: Retention

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, Dr. Geoghegan will prescribe a custom Retention schedule appropriate for you to make sure your teeth and jaws stay in their new position and keep your smile looking its best! All of SOP’s treatments include retainers and a period of supervised retention with Dr. Geoghegan.

Patients can also avail of 20% tax relief on non-routine orthodontic treatments in the same way as you can for medical expenses.

In order to claim, patients must fill out a Med 1 form – Health Expenses Claim for Tax Relief (www.revenue.ie/forms/med1.pdf). Please ask the practice for a Med 2 form which will confirm the payments made and will be signed by Dr. Geoghegan.

You do not need to submit your Med 2 form or receipts to Revenue but you must ensure that you hold them for a period of 6 years as you may be asked to present them at any stage during this period. You should make your claim at the end of each year (however, you can claim tax relief on any eligible expenses dating back 4 years).
