Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Ruairi Ó Murchú (Louth, Sinn Fein)
The Irish Dental Association stated within the past fortnight that 260 dentists had removed themselves from the scheme. It has already been said that the PPE issue was the straw that broke the camel's back. The DTSS is not working. A large number of medical card holders will not be able to avail of proper dental care. A review of the dental care system is required. I raised this matter with the Tánaiste previously. Will he update us? It needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
