    Hi,

    Is it possible to get free dentist for my daughter?  I looked at the local dentists but they seem to have a lot of expensive fees.

    I think she might need braces as one of her tooth is getting pushed out.

    How would I find the NHS one that can do this?

    I am in Hounslow.

    Thanks for your help.

    Not sure but have you tried internet search for local NHS dentists?

    Yes, I found some dentists but they all have fees – just not sure how the dentist works and  find out if there any option for free treatments or which ones are more affordable.

    shouldn’t be fee’s for NHS dentist for under 18’s; please see; Who is entitled to free NHS dental treatment in England? – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

    As long as your kid doesn’t have any allergies bongela gel can help with gum irritation not just teething & clove oil is great too if they can tolerate the taste, both can usually be bought at the chemist  🙂

    hope that helps & best of luck!

    I contacted them, they don’t accept NHS patients.

    might be the individual dentist, some are private only! – i think the link above has a bit you can search for your nearest nhs dentist too.

    lived near Hounslow-ish years ago … there are loads of them about around there. – if you need a referral to the orthodontist for braces… i think there is a free hospital in central London who could help, last i heard it is means tested & has to be causing issues to be eligible. Another option could be dental insurance perhaps, some offer payment plans too.
