After Hours Dental Care

This for emergency cases only.  For active duty Soldiers who are assigned to Fort Leavenworth, the after-hour dental emergency line is (913) 565-0693, from 4 p.m.-7:15 a.m. 

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 7:30 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 except wire removal.

Dental Readiness Classification

The oral health of uniformed personnel shall be classified as follows:
DRC1 – Patients with a current dental examination, who do not require dental treatment or reevaluation. Class 1 patients are worldwide deployable, and are displayed as green in MEDPROS.
DRC2 – Patients with a current examination, who require non-urgent dental treatment or reevaluation for oral conditions, which are unlikely to result in dental emergencies within 12 months. This may include cleaning, maintenance therapy, fillings, etc.  Class 2 patients are worldwide deployable, but will be displayed as amber in MEDPROS.
DRC3 – Patients who require urgent or emergent dental treatment or can reasonably be expected to have a dental emergency in the next 12 months.  Class 3 patients are not worldwide deployable and are displayed as red in MEDPROS.
DRC4 – Patients who have not had a dental exam in the last 15 months. Class 4 patients are not worldwide deployable until they have had an exam and are determined to be Class 1 or 2 as a result of the exam. Patients who are over 15 months due for an exam are displayed as red in MEDPROS.
