The dental professional staff is composed of general dentists and specialists trained to provide services in all areas of dentistry to active duty Airmen. Examinations, Preventive Dentistry, Restorative, Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Oral Surgery, Endodontics, and extremely limited space available services are available. Dental Clinic hours are 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday - Friday.
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 then inform each member of their pending appointment. Unit Health Monitors will be notified of all broken appointments. Identified treatment needs will be scheduled after the periodic dental examination.
All other beneficiaries are eligible for care on space-available basis. Space availability is determined by the Dental Service Chief, and is very limited. For this reason, sponsors are highly encouraged to enroll their families in Tricare Dental Plan (TDP) and retired personnel should not consider this MTF as their primary source of dental care.
Emergency dental care during duty hours:
Active duty personnel with dental concerns or emergency may call the Dental Clinic at 582-6474 for a same-day evaluation appointment on any scheduled duty day. Other than active duty personnel are eligible for initial stabilization of emergencies and relief of pain. However, family members enrolled in TDP should utilize their civilian dentists, as emergency care is covered by TDP.
Emergency dental care after hours:
Active duty members with dental emergencies after normal duty hours should call the Appointment Line at 734-2778. If the active duty person has a true emergency, he/she will be contacted by the on-call dental provider to determine the need to see the patient after hours. Non-active duty beneficiaries who cannot contact their civilian dentist have the option of calling 734-2778.
All routine dental care will be scheduled in advance of the appointment time. This can be done in person or via telephone by calling 582-6474.
Patients are asked to be present at their appointed time. If a patient is late for their appointment, they can be considered a no-show and that appointment may be given to another patient to maximize available patient treatment time.
If appointment cancellation is necessary, it may be done by calling 582-6474. A 24-hour notice is desired to minimize lost patient treatment time.
