Dental Advice for Families
In the United Kingdom, Service dependants have to make their own arrangements for dental care. They are entitled to the same benefits under the National Health Service (NHS) as the general population, and need to find a dental surgeon in general practice who participates in the NHS and register for treatment. Alternatively, they may wish to register with a dental surgeon in private practice.
You are strongly urged to register with a dental practitioner during your stay. Once accepted you will be entitled to continuing care, and to receive treatment when you need it. The dentist will discuss any needs with you and, if you have to pay NHS charges, tell you how much each item is likely to cost. You will also, in an emergency, be able to get telephone advice from a dentist outside surgery hours, and treatment will be available if you need it.Irrespective of your place of residence, you may ask any one of these dentists if he/she will accept you and your children as patients.
