You should register with a dentist as soon as possible. Visit NHS24 to find one in your area. There is a shortage of NHS dentists and it can be difficult to find one willing to accept new patients. The local Health Board should be able to help 0131 537 8444. You may be able to get help towards the costs of NHS dental treatment on the grounds of low income (by completing a HC1 form, available from ENSA Offices at B34, Merchiston).
