Default NHS Exemption for self employed?

After being unemployed for almost a year, I decided to become self employed a year ago. Things are going slowly at the moment and I only earned around 6000 in the last tax year. I am in need of some dental work but really can't afford the 198 charge at the moment, so would I be entitled to exemption, or a reduced fee due to my low income? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Do you receive working tax credits, if you are, based on your income you may be entitled to free NHS costs.

Take a look at this link:

Thanks for the reply. As I'm under 25 and have no children, I don't receive any tax credits. Does this mean I am not eligible for help?

Click on the link you may be entitled to part costs due to low income.

Wish you future success with your business.

Ah, it may be worth applying then. Thanks, hopefully things will pick up soon! It sure beats being unemployed anyway!
