The Dental Clinic provides dental services to active duty military only. Services include examinations, preventive and restorative dentistry, prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and limited oral surgery capabilities. Active duty personnel must receive a periodic dental examination to assess each member’s readiness status. Appointments for periodic dental examinations will be scheduled by the Dental Clinic and coordinated with the unit health monitor who will inform each member of her pending appointment. Identified treatment needs will be scheduled after the periodic dental examination. Patients are asked to be present 10 minutes prior to their appointed time. If a patient is late for his appointment, they may be considered a no-show. If appointment cancellation is necessary, please call as soon as possible. A 2-hour notice is mandatory to minimize lost patient treatment time. Active duty personnel with dental concerns or emergencies may call the Dental Clinic for a same-day evaluation appointment on any scheduled duty day. All other personnel are eligible for initial stabilization of emergencies and relief of pain. However, family members and retirees enrolled in TRICARE dental program should use their civilian dentists. Active duty members with dental emergencies after normal duty hours should call the appointment line and follow prompts. Beneficiaries who are not active duty who cannot reach their civilian dentist also have the option of contacting the on-call dental provider.
