Routine Dental Care

Beneficiaries Other Than Active Duty: Routine dental care for all patients other than active duty at the Tripler Dental Clinic is extremely limited. Routine dental treatment for all patients other than active duty is with civilian dentists accessed through the TRICARE Dental Plan, as mandated by federal law. Extremely limited space-available care is accessed by being medically adjunctive dental treatment or as teaching cases.

Teaching Cases: A limited number of other than active-duty patients can be seen in support of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program. This care may include extraction of wisdom teeth, removal of growths, repair of facial fractures and surgery to improve facial or masticatory functions. A limited number of eligible children are seen in support of the Advanced General Dentistry Residency Program. This care may include fillings, extractions, crowns, root canal treatments, space maintainers, habit therapy appliances and early interceptive and preventive orthodontic corrections.

Medically Adjunctive Dental Care: Dental care that will significantly improve the outcome of the medical care the patient is receiving while an inpatient and/or cannot be provided to the patient by the civilian community as an outpatient. A limited number of eligible children, who are enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program because of their special needs and require specialized behavior management in the hospital setting, may be seen by the pediatric dentist.
