Is Dental Care Free in the UK for Over 60s?

Are you over 60 and living in the UK? If so, you may be wondering if you can get free dental care. The answer is yes, but it depends on where you live. In Scotland and Wales, NHS dental checkups are free for everyone, regardless of age. In England, however, free dental care is only available to those aged 60 and over.

Prescription drugs and dental care are also free during pregnancy and for 12 months after your baby is born. This applies to all parts of the UK. For everyone else, most people in the UK have to pay for their dental care through the NHS. Depending on the type of treatment you need, this can be expensive and bills can quickly add up.

Some procedures can cost hundreds of pounds.
