      Interesting.... Is this still valid? For the municipality I live in, has just medddelt that I need to run 25 miles with my kids to dentistry now, instead of that they might even go to the dentist from school...
      And there is nothing anywhere about freedom of choice before the age of 16... And with the self-payment it can easily answer themselves when you consider the lost earnings and drive.
