VA - Health Care - Dental Care
Managing Agency Veterans Health Administration (VHA) http://www.va.gov/health
Program DescriptionOutpatient dental treatment available to eligible veterans may include the full spectrum of diagnostic, surgical, restorative, and preventive procedures. In many cases, however, the law permits only limited kinds of care.
General Program RequirementsEligibility rules are quite complex.
There are a variety of situations in which a veteran might qualify for dental care. Some veterans qualify for total dental care; many others can receive dental treatment only under certain circumstances.
Three groups qualify for total dental care:
- 100% service-connected veterans
- Former prisoners of war
- Veterans who receive compensation for a service-connected dental condition.
