We provide comprehensive dental services for active duty members. Dental services offered include; preventive annual exams and cleanings; fillings and crowns; oral surgery, including extractions; periodontics, or gum disease treatment and maintenance; endodontics, or root canals; and prosthodontics, which are partial dentures and implants. Routine appointments are typically available within 21 duty days. Some dental specialty services require more coordination and therefore may take longer. The majority of elective services are not authorized within 6 months of separation or retirement.
