I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for the TRICARE Dental Program. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I really appreciate the services offered with the TRICARE Dental Program.
We’re a busy homeschool family with four growing kids and the convenience of this dental program works well for our needs. It’s cost effective, worldwide, flexible, and easily accessible.
November is National Military Family Appreciation Month. I am proud to serve my family as a military spouse. I take pride in caring for my family’s needs, including ensuring their dental health. I am so fortunate to have such services readily available for my family for just a little extra each month.
TRICARE Dental Program makes it easy for me to make sure my family has healthy teeth and mouths!
You can enroll in the TRICARE Dental Program if you’re a:
- Family member of an active duty service member
- Family member of a National Guard/Reserve member
- National Guard/Reserve Member who isn’t on active duty or covered by the Transitional Assistance Management Program (TAMP) – You get active duty dental benefits if you’re on active duty or covered by TAMP.
The TRICARE Dental Program has many great benefits for military families!
Families enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program are eligible for:
- low cost premiums
- free annual exams
- discounts on orthodontist services
The discount on orthodontics was a lifesaver when my eldest daughter needed braces! It would’ve been much, much more money for us without a dental program.
The plan is conveniently available worldwide in two service areas:
- CONUS: United States, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands
- OCONUS: All other locations
I love being able to go to local dentists for services no matter where we’re stationed in the world! We’ve loved our dentists and dental specialists in Georgia, Texas, Hawaii, Utah, and Germany!
The plan provides continuous dental coverage despite changes in life events, geographical locations, or military status.
We don’t have to worry about changing dentists in the electronic age. Our records can be forwarded digitally when we PCS. It’s easy to make appointments when we want. I like the ability to choose a dentist that suits our family’s needs.
After you enroll, you can create an account with to:
- View dental coverage
- Check a claim
- View claims history
- View explanation of benefits
- Find a dentist
- File a complaint

I love being able to complete info online without leaving my house! It makes everything easier and saves costs on both ends.
Refer to the fact sheet for more information on TRICARE Dental Program.
The dentists on base are quick to recommend the TRICARE Dental Program since active duty members (and dependents, if they’re able to get appointments) are only allocated to receive a single cleaning each year. Two cleanings per year are recommended for optimal dental health. They know the benefits of the program! And I agree!
Our family certainly embraces a health and wellness lifestyle. We use natural and sustainable products, dietary supplements, and essential oils…some of our favorites are the Thieves Dental Care line from Young Living.
Our dentists are always so pleased to see our family in their offices since we are such model patients with great oral health! They say we should be tooth models and teach others how to care for their teeth.
The Defense Health Agency continues to offer a comprehensive dental care
option available for purchase by eligible active duty family members and
National Guard and Reserve members and their families. Effective May 1, 2017,
United Concordia Companies, Inc. (United Concordia) will assume responsibility
for administering the TRICARE Dental Program, replacing the outgoing dental
contractor. Your monthly premium rate will also change and you may
need to find a new dental provider.
