It depends on if you/your husband is working and if you're claiming any benefits. For example, i'm missing 3 teeth on each side due to seizures (thankfully not at the front, though i had to have a front one repaired!) Because i was on working tax credits and then ESA i didn't have to pay. However, when i was a student i had to pay the £20 odd for just sitting in the chair. I had a plate done for free too, but unfortunately broke it. Am thinking i should get another before i go back into work. I'll see if i can find the link to show eligibility and then edit this post to put it in

Edit - that was fast, here you go NHS site Sadly epilepsy alone doesn't entitle you to free dental care the same way it does for medication :(
