    Do you still get free dentist under the nhs if you’re 18 and still in full time education?

    Also why does the dentist always focus on one tooth for example and ask you to come back in a few months time etc and ignore your other teeth?

    Free dental care on the NHS up until 19 if you're in full time education. 18 if not.

    I would assume it's because you have one tooth that looks like it might be having issues while your others look fine. They should start each appt by checking all of your teeth and recording their condition. It will just be a quick look and maybe a poke if they aren't a problem though. Only potentially problematic teeth will get more attention than that because only they need it.
