Am i still entitled to free dentistry?Watch
I'm 18, I made a slight chip to my incisor tooth in January and I had it filling a few days after (this happened when I was 17). Now part of the filling has fallen out and now that I'm 18 I don't know if I'm still entitled to free dentistry because the NHS website says you are entitled if you are "under 19 and in full-time education". I've just finished my A-Level and I'm hoping to start university in September. Since I've finished college I don't know if I'm still classified as full-time education and I don't want to wait until university starts.
All you can do is contact your dentist and see what they say.
Once you're at uni, join the local uni dentist and apply for the HC2 certificate as early as possible. Some people get them, some don't but if you are given one they are an absolute lifesaver. Mine didn't ask about parental income so it was granted fairly easily.
Good luck with your poor teeth!
