    Hi All

    We recently had a voucher for our two oldest children to have a check up with the dentist. Do you get any help here as far as braces. Our son was lucky in that he had just finished with his before we left the UK and he was one of the last in the UK to get it on the NHS. But our oldest daughter will need one soon.

    Any info will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Hi C,

     

    If you are looking at a full set top and bottom it's around $5k.:swoon:

    We had the top private health cover and got a rebate of $500.

    Braces are around $5000 - each implant is around $4000-$5000 but if we play it right with our health cover we can half the costs of the implants just as long as there is a couple of years gap in between them:biglaugh:
