I have lived in Sweden many years and have paid lots of tax in the UK as well. Can i go to a dentist in the UK having an NH number etc as i can get my teeth done for £200 there, but over here it´s 10,000 kronor. There are rules but any tips to go around it.?

Interpidfox I am amazed that you think just because you pay NIC you are entitled to access the NHS. Access to the NHS is through residency not payment, that is what a lot of ex-pats forget.

I'm not sure this is correct. I was in London on a business conference when a crown came off. I looked up a local dentist on Google and went that afternoon. Their response was it would cost me GBP 250 to go private, or if I could come back the next afternoon they could do it on the NHS for GBP 70.

Naturally, I deferred it until the next day. No checks were ever done, I used my old address in the UK. For all they know, I could have walked off a banana boat that morning.

It's there to abuse as a foreigner.

That is what i was thinking. I have my NI number and an address at my parents. I would save 8000:-.
