Will I have to pay for NHS treatment?

It depends. Many adults over the age of 18 have to pay. In Scotland, NHS charges are set by the Scottish Government. If you have to pay you can ask your dentist how much it will cost before your treatment begins. Some adults can get help with some or all of the costs e.g. you can get free NHS dental treatment if you:

• Are pregnant
• Have had a baby in the last 12 months, or
• Get income support or cetain other benefits.

You must tell the reception staff if you do not have to pay for NHS dental charges or you get help to pay them. You may need to show proof of this. Information explaining NHS care, exemptions, private fees etc are available from our website or directly from the reception staff.
