Can I claim orthodonist expenses for daughter (shared custody) even though I don't claim her as a dependent?

My daughter is 14 years old and I have shared custody of her.  She lives with me 3 days a week.  My ex wife claims my daughter as a dependent. My daughter is covered by my extended dental and medical benefits from my employer.  Can I claim the uninsured portion (i.e. the portion I paid) for her dental braces?
