I have a question about claiming dental expenses on my tax return. Can I claim out-of-pocket dental expenses on my taxes?
Claiming dental expenses is an allowable deduction on your tax return. You can claim dental expenses on your taxes if you incurred fees for the prevention and alleviation of dental disease. This includes:
- Services of a dental hygienist or dentist for teeth cleaning
- Application of sealants and fluoride treatments to prevent tooth decay
- Other dental ailments
You can’t deduct purely cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening.
