Absolutely.

You'll just need to list your daughter as a dependant. Listing her as a dependant doesn't automatically claim other credits.

Be sure to complete the Additional Dependant Information in the Deductions section and indicate that she did not live with you.

I'm assuming she's a minor so you can just add the cost of her braces to any medical expenses you are claiming.
