Hey, wasn't sure where this should be but think this is the most appropriate...

Do full time students pay full price dental care? Any info would be great, I'm going to the welfare office in my SU tomorrow but I'd like to know more about it before I just wander on in.

Thanks!

    What I've been told is that you have to pay unless you have an exemption certificate.

    You pay full NHS rates unless you have an exemption or pre-payment certificate AFAIK. If you are under the age of 19, and studying in England. Students studying in Wales and Scotland have different rules.

    It's the same rules as with prescription costs.

    as all above have said you pay ful price if your over 19, you can get an exemption as far a im aware its called an HC1 form, you probaly get it from your dentist/chemist.
