“Space Required”: dental services provided in a military facility. Only in rare cases will these patients be referred to a non-military facility.
“Space Available”: dental services in a military facility, but treatment is based on staff and facility capabilities. If treatment cannot be provided at an Army facility, an attempt will be made to refer such cases to the nearest Air Force or Navy dental facilities to provide the required services. If other local military facilities cannot provide treatment due to staff or facility limitations, the patient must seek care off base utilizing their personal dental insurance. We cannot refer any patients to off base dental facilities. The patient must contact their personal dental insurance provider for guidance on this matter.
Dental Insurance: https://tricare.mil/dental/ OTAD (Other Than Active Duty) personnel, may elect to purchase personal dental insurance. Having personal dental insurance will provide individuals an option to seek dental care off base.
Specialty Dental Care (Prosthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, Pedodontics and Orthodontics): May be provided at our facilities on a limited basis by our general dentists, but more comprehensive and/or complex cases may be referred to local Air Force or Navy dental facilities. The Air Force and Navy dental facilities are in high demand and usually only accept active duty personnel. All other beneficiaries may seek additional dental care through personal dental insurance off base.
Availability of Dental Care: Routine dental care and specialty dental services are extremely limited for retirees and DoD/DA civilian beneficiary categories. Emergency care, in order to stabilize or relieve pain, may be provided during business hours, on a space available basis.
