    I'm over 19 but still a full-time student. I haven't been to the dentist in a few years since getting my braces off but now I think my wisdom tooth is coming through and it's impacting my molar and my retainer doesn't go back that far to straighten it out. I just want to get it checked out to see if that tooth is going to become pesky.

    Now I know because I'm over 19 I'm no longer automatically entitled to free dental care, but I'm a little baffled about the costs. Do I need to fill in a HC1 form to get a HC2 form explaining my circumstances, and then I might be entitled to full financial aid? That seems to be the impression I'm getting but I'm not sure. Would that mean dental care for me is free or only partially funded by the NHS?

    Thanks

    I think HC2 but call the NHS: they will be able to help. Otherwise, talk to your university and they surely will let you know which one it is. I do think it's the HC2 though

    Interesting... I was thinking about a checkup the other day.

    Does the HC1/2/3/4/5/whatever take into consideration your parents' income or just your own?

    I'm 23 and studying full time, and I filled in HC1 and got my certificate. Your income counts even its 1p. You need to tell your all income to them including any student loan or part time job, savings and based on that information they make their decision deciding how much help you're entitled to. Hope it helps
