Do i qualify for free dental treatment?

Hi, i'm 19 years old and i recieve long term incapacity benefit (with the age addition). I also get DLA but this is paid into my mums account (it always has been and i signed a form to say that it could continue going into her account once i reached 16). My mum gets income support and carers allowance so she automatically gets free dental care and prescriptions. I have a medical exempt card for free prescriptions but i'm not sure if this applies for dentist as well? I'm at the dentist tomorrow and if i need anything doing and have to pay, i dont have the money to spare

Anybody have any info on this?

Thanks!
