Pensioners get free dental treatment I read, I don't know if your wife qualifies :-\

You have to be on benefits for free treatment,or you pay NHS charges which is in 3 bands.
1 check up,maybe x ray,roughly£35
2 treatment,fillings/clean£70 ish.
3 crown £200+
dentist I used to use,just look into my mouth for Band 1.

They do cost an arm and a leg. Especially if you're using one of the better reputable dentists.

hears one more thing that went wrong with the dentists last year once again took wife to the dentist for her six month check  up no probs  went to reception to pay the bill it come to £22 some odd pence  so I paid by card got a print out of the bill and it said paid in full  and off we went  three moths later I had a bill come from the n.h,s for £120 pound for dental treat meant  they said I had made a fraudulent claim for dental treatment    bill had contact numbers  to phone and so I did  they would not except  a copy of the bill payment and if I did not pay they would take me to court   so I went to the dentist told them  yes its a mistake on our part we will put it right we will send them a copy of pay meant      and that they did   end of story  not on your life  a few weeks later I got a bill for £22 pound   so it was a trip to the dentist  with the demand for payment a showed them the bill  ho dear leave it with us we will sort it out   like you did last time I gave them a 7 days to sort it   yes they did
