    Yep, and England pays for it through the Barnett formula. That will change if you ever become independent.
    The only free thing is the check up, everything else is pay per item.

    The NHS services of the British Isles were only distantly connected from the start. They all had their own systems and provisions (well the English and Welsh ones were united once but split apart).

    We can't expect them to all do the same things.

    Many companies in the UK are owned by foreign countries as do we abroad. Companies offering private and NHS dentistry included. Integrated Dental Holdings (IDH), now rebranded MyDentist, is a British incorporated company owned by Carlyle, one of the biggest investment companies and hedge funds in the United States. Over 600 dental practices in the UK are owned by this US company, paid for with debt finance. The current US president would be very happy about that considering his recent statement everything is on the table re post Brexit US-UK agreement! According to a recent conference call with IDH Finance the aim is to move further into private practice as that is more profitable and would attract more investment from the big investment companies. This could mean perhaps that the current lack of NHS dentists and practices and difficulty finding a nearby NHS practice in the UK could get worse. Problem will get worse as long as the governments in England, Wales, and Scotland will not pay dentists better rates, although the problem has other causes as well.

    Not sure how that is going to help the OP who already has NHS dental appt. Perhaps better for the political board.

    That dentist visit went very well.
    Checkup, only had top answer that I don't pay for dental treatment and complete medicine info.
    Forgot to ask, how do they know I don;t pay when they didn't take my nhs Tax exemption form
