    Why can't you afford it? Students and those on low incomes get free dental care.

    You do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment if, when the treatment starts, you are:

    aged under 18
    under 19 and receiving full-time education
    pregnant or have had a baby in the previous 12 months
    staying in an NHS hospital and your treatment is carried out by the hospital dentist
    an NHS hospital dental service outpatient (however, you may have to pay for your dentures or bridges).

    You do not have to pay if, during the course of treatment, you or your partner, receive:

    Income Support
    Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
    Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    Pension Credit guarantee credit
    Universal Credit and meet the criteria

    or

    you are named on or entitled to a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate – if you don't have a certificate, you can show your award notice; you qualify if you get Child Tax Credits, Working Tax Credits with a disability element (or both) and have income for tax credit purposes of £15,276 or less
    you are named on a valid HC2 certificate

    So answer my original question; why can you not afford it? Are you not eligible for any of the above categories? And if not then it is assumed you can afford the ~£50 band 2 charge which, if working full time, should be achievable by anyone.

    Also; the website seems to suggest it is free if you fall into one of those categories.

    No I don't think i am eligible. I dont get any of those things. but money is still very tight and food/bills is more important and i dont think getting a filling is a big risk. anyway you obviously don't know of anyone but i am greatful for you trying to help me.
