This article will provide you with the information on how to register with a dentist.
When and how to register
Under the NHS, there are now charges for check-ups. The dentist will advise you of costs for other NHS treatments.
Free treatment is available under the NHS if the patient's income is low. A claim can be made by completing a ‘Prescription Exemption Certificate’ which will mean that no payment is required (this also provides free NHS prescriptions).
You should complete this form before you need treatment - obtaining refunds is time consuming and can be problematic.
