    I'm a British student currently studying in Scotland and I was wondering what was covered under the free NHS dental treatment that's available for students - does it just cover things like check-ups and emergency treatments or does it cover bridges/implants, etc. (not for cosmetic purposes).

    Hi,

    EVERYBODY can get a FREE dental check. However as a student you need to pay and indeed recently raised this with my MP as I find this mad!!

    See this for further information:

    I think the option free/paid will vary from your treatment process.

    Check ups are free. However any treatment must be paid for, but you might get help if you fill out a HC1 form (found here). The HC1 form is based on your current situation though so be careful when you fill it out - for example if you have a summer job they'll assume you get that money all year round so you may not get as much.
