If you are in pain outside of duty hours, you may call (913) 684-6000. This is an afterhours number at MUNSON, and MUNSON will notify the Dentist on call. The dentist on call will then reach out to you to coordinate care.
Urgent Dental Care
An urgent dental condition is one which causes discomfort such as lost fillings, chipped teeth, minor toothaches, or irritated gums. These conditions are not emergencies, and can be treated with home remedies until the soldier can be seen at their assigned dental clinic during usual sick call hours 7:40 a.m.-9 a.m. on normal duty days. Family members will schedule urgent dental care with their civilian dentist.
Routine Dental Care
Routine dental care is care given for conditions which are not urgent or emergency in nature, and includes periodic examination, oral prophylaxis (teeth cleaning), specialty referrals, and other appointments. Routine care normally begins with the patient reporting to their assigned dental clinic for an oral examination, development of a treatment plan, and establishment of their first appointment. Family members would do this through their civilian dentist. ORTHODONTIC CARE IS NOT AVAILABLE.
