We get dental covered in our public health for under 18s, but adults have to pay.

I blame the school dental van for my fear of the dentist, as does my husband. In the 70s (and 80s I believe) there used to be this van that went around to all the primary schools doing free check ups, they were notorious for pulling teeth for no reason and not being very generous with the anesthetic.
I was lucky and got the anesthetic for my wobbly tooth that they said didn't need to waste time by coming out on it's own. My husband wasn't so lucky, apparently they didn't want to risk anesthetic with his heart condition, so they pulled out four of his baby teeth with no pain relief at all.
