Over-60s: no exemption from NHS Dental charges?

Do over-60s not get exemption from NHS dental charges?

My mother's filling fell out and it cost £42 to replace.

She just gets the basic pension of £106 a week (she is heavily subsidised by her children).

From what I can read, because she has over 16k in PROPERTY, she isn't entitled to free dental care.

Am I correct? It seems mad.

Same for my mum too - she's over 70 ! Pays standard NHS fees to dentist plus hygienist. Free prescriptions though.
