Or you get, or are included in an award of someone getting:

  • Income Support,
  • Universal Credit,
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (contribution based JSA does not entitle you to help with health costs),
  • Income-related Employment & Support Allowance (contribution based ESA does not entitle you to help with health costs), or
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit, (Pension Credit savings credit on its own does not entitle you to help with health costs).

Any subsequent treatment as a result of the free examination carries the appropriate charge.

The above groups are automatically exempt and need only sign the appropriate part of the dental claim form that we ask you to sign at the start of treatment. Proof of exemption must be provided by the patient for us to see. However, there are many people, such as those on low income, who may still be able to get help with dental charges.

You may be asked to pay any dental charges if you are awaiting the outcome of a claim of exemption, but if it turns out that you are able to receive help, you can claim back any charges paid from the Local Health Board.
