Dental Treatment Advice Please

Tony & Debs

I would be grateful if someone could give me some advice,
I am currently on a unpaid career break, to look after my son, and enable my
wife to return to work.
Paid a visit to the dentist on Tuesday, to have a filling, but ended up
having a wisdom tooth removed. Today (Thursday), another molar, next to the
removed wisdom tooth has decided to crumble..and i have also got to go back
in 2 weeks for more treatment, probably another wisdom tooth removal as
well.
I was wondering if i am entitled to any financial help, being that i have no
source of income.
Any advice greatly appreciated

Although you have no personal income you will find that for the purposes of
means-testing, you will be assessed as one of a couple with Debs.

This seems a good place to start for further info on help with NHS charges:

If you are claiming Working Tax Credit and your household income is under
£14,000 you will be entitled to help. You should automatically get an
exemption certificate. If not your Working Tax Credit award notice will do.
Just take either to the dentist an they will give you an exemption form to
fill in Of course your dentist has to be an NHS one.

Thank you for all your help, looks like debs will have to pay, not entitled
to any financual help as debs is earning 19000.
