Document Am I entitled to free NHS dental treatment if I'm pregnant or have recently given birth?

It is being pregnant that entitles you to free NHS dental treatment, not the Maternity exemption certificate.

You would be entitled to free NHS dental treatment if, at the time you're accepted for a course of NHS dental treatment:
  • You are pregnant
or;
  • You have had a baby (including a baby registered as stillborn) within the last 12 months.
If you have a miscarriage, you would only be entitled to free NHS dental treatment if you were pregnant at the time you were accepted for a course of NHS dental treatment.

If you have miscarried prior to being accepted for a course of NHS dental treatment, you wouldn't be entitled.

If you have given birth to a child registered as stillborn, you’re entitled to free NHS dental treatment for 12 months following the birth.

If you became pregnant partway through a course of NHS dental treatment you're not entitled to this course of treatment for free.

If you started the course of NHS dental treatment when you were exempt you would be entitled to this course of treatment for free if your entitlement ceased part way through.
