    So I'm due for a dental appointment but I turned 18 very recently. In my last appointment they didn't tell me anything about paying for treatment next time. Also starting university in September (if I meet my offer ). Am I still classed in full time education? Considering I haven't received results yet

    When you're at uni it'll be free until you turn 19, so I expect not.

    I believe that the time between college and uni is still classed as education (just as school holidays are) so you're probably okay. You could always check on the nhs website though.

    You will be eligible for free NHS dental care, at least I was in your position. You could double check with the surgery though and they should be able to let you know. Are you having ongoing treatment, or is it more of a checkup? Even if you did have to pay for whatever reason, if you started the treatment beforehand then it should still be free regardless
