Dental Benefits for Veterans

Posted: February 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

I see a lot of patients who ask whether then can finish their dental treatment at the VA when they separate from the military. Here is the official answer:

Cost free VA dental benefits are available:

  • You must have served 90 days or more, and;
  • Your DD214 must not show that you received all your needed dental service at least 90 days prior to your separation.

You must apply to VA for this dental care within 180 days (6 months) of separation from active duty.

If you experienced “dental trauma” while in an active duty status, you may be eligible for lifelong dental care associated with this trauma and receive a service connected disability.
