Document Is the cost of seeing a hygienist covered by my NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate?

Any treatment that is clinically necessary in your NHS dentist's opinion to protect and maintain good oral health is available through the NHS and can, therefore, be covered by your NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate.

If your treatment isn't clinically necessary in your NHS dentist's opinion or you request to see a hygienist for cosmetic reasons only, this would be classed as private treatment and wouldn't be covered by your NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate.
