Dentists say the medical card scheme is nearing 'total collapse'.

An independently commissioned report by the Irish Dental Association has found that a voucher or credit system would help to rebuild relations between the public, Dentists and the Government.

The report is proposing that medical card holders be issued vouchers or credits of between 100 and 500 euro to allow them access more treatments.

Fintan Hourihan of the Irish Dental Association says it would mean a better service for patients.

He has been speaking to Midwest News.
