Good afternoon. Pursuant to Turbo Tax ( "Yes, dental implants are an approved medical expense that can be deducted on your return. Medical expenses are an itemized deduction on Schedule A and are deductible to the extent they exceed 10% of your adjusted gross income (AGI). If you are 65 or over, they are deductible to the extent they exceed 7.5%"
