Book your child’s free NHS check-up

Remember to book your child's regular check-ups as recommended by your dentist. . You don’t have to pay a penny, as kids go free on the NHS until they reach 18, or 19 and are still in full-time education.

Children can also see our dentists for free until the age of five with Bupa Dental Essentials, an affordable alternative to private dental care if there’s no NHS availability at your local practice.
