yes it should be 1 of the boxes say in full time education prob only get a free checkup any work will more than likely cost

I think it depends on if you have savings & income.
There's a form you need...I don't know what it's called though, sorry.
If you are eligible, you won't necessarily get free treatment but you will at least get it discounted.

I think it's only up until 19 years of age. I could be wrong it has been known...

EDIT: Print off this form and send it off. See what reply you get in 4 weeks. http://www.ncl.ac.uk/students/wellbeing/assets/documents/hc1form.pdf
Part 9 is specifically for people in full time education, so it's definitely the right form.


no you have to pay for all dentistry once you turn 19 regardless of if you are in full time education.

Its free up till 19 if you are in full time education.
After that your on your tod i'm afraid.

Know this because of my drunken escapade where i broke my top 4 front teeth at 19 (drunk uni night), and got it free. Treatment went over till i just turned 20 but once treatment starts its covered and already paid for.

If theres any, get on an NHS dentist. Paid private for years till one opened here and saves you a fortune when you look at the prices.

There is a form (turns out it's called HC1) you can fill in as I was handed one at uni (ok, a few years ago) and if you have a look at my link above there are universities saying you might be able to get help with your dental costs if you are in full time education.
OP, if you go to your student union, student doctors surgery etc and ask there, you will probably get the best advice.

yes if he is on the bones of his/her bottom, my 19 year old is still in full time education and muggins here has to pay his dental fees. Those forms are a complete joke imo :0

I had a non-repayable loan from Bank of Mum & Dad for my dentist check ups. Ahhh, the good old days X)
I think my student loan was considered income so that meant I wasn't eligible for help with dental costs.

No it isn't free if you're over 19 in full time education. Though you need a HC1 form to get a discount which they base off your income.

Mines capped at £18. You pay whichever is the cheaper, the bill or the cap essentially.

Told ya OP, i do try and be helpful sometimes
