Children on a HSE waiting list for braces can start their treatment with Zen immediately.

Is your child on a HSE waiting list for orthodontic treatment?  If so you can arrange an appointment at Zen with no waiting list.  Even better is that you can claim up to €2,040 towards the cost.  This is made possible under an EU scheme called the Cross-Border Directive.

How The Cross Border Directive Works

If your child has already had their assessment and is waiting for their orthodontic treatment you can book an appointment with Zen and we will start your child’s brace treatment straight away.  You can then claim up to €2,040 towards the cost of treatment.

We have helped hundreds of families by starting brace treatment quickly for their children and we would love to help you too.  We are ideally placed in Newry, so it’s easy to find us when travelling from the South.  Due to our exceptional patient care, we recently won the Best Patient Care Award 2017 at the National Dentistry Awards.  We are also finalists for three 2018 Irish Dentistry Awards, including Best Patient Care.

Have a read of Debbie’s account of her HSE experience here at Zen.  Debbie’s daughter Ellenor finished her treatment in February 2018. 

We would be delighted to hear from you, so please do get in touch.

"I'm so glad we chose to come to Zen through the cross border scheme. Niamh was getting very anxious about her teeth and we were able to start her brace treatment within weeks of her first appointment. The staff at Zen are so welcoming and friendly and the results are fantastic. Niamh's delighted with her teeth. It was really easy to claim back the cost too, so I'm happy too. Smiles all round!"
