    I recently had an accident in a night club which involved me falling on a wet floor and losing one of my front teeth. I now have to wear a denture and it cost me £280 at my private dentist. Shortly after having the denture fitted, I sent off a HC1 form and now I am entitled to free dental treatment on the NHS with the HC2 certificate I received.

    I was wondering if I could claim the £280 back even though the treatment wasn't done on the NHS, that would be great if I could as I'm a full time student so money is something I don't have much of!

    I think you should get your money back.

    Unlikely if you went as a private patient in the first place. If you'd been an NHS patient and had to pay the standard NHS fee, you might have been able to get that back, but I doubt they'll refund private fees. Think about it - if you could do that, everyone who went private for any NHS care that is normally free (e.g. joint replacement) would be able to claim the money back for it! Can't hurt to ask though.

    Hello,
    Well you have to claim for it. And apparently if you could get then take help law and go through.
