What is Dental Readiness?

Dental Readiness is defined by how much or what type of dental work you need or may require. This is broken down into four basic fitness classifications:

Dental Fitness Class 1: Congratulations! Administratively, your dental record is correct and all of your dental treatment has been completed. You are required to have a dental exam once a year, and require no additional dental care at this time.

Dental Fitness Class 2: Your record is administratively current, but you have dental conditions for which we strongly recommend you schedule routine care (cleaning, fillings, etc.). These conditions are unlikely to result in a dental emergency within 12 months.

Dental Fitness Class 3: You need our help and immediate attention! You require treatment to correct dental conditions that are likely to cause a dental emergency within 12 months. Examples of such include large cavities that need fillings, root canal treatment that needs completed, problematic wisdom teeth that need extracted, etc. Please make an appointment with us immediately.

Dental Fitness Class 4: You require a dental examination or do not have a dental record. Hence we are not able to validate your true dental fitness. Correct this deficiency today.

Dental Fitness Class 3 or 4 places you in a "non-readiness compliant" category. Please contact us immediately to remedy this situation. Remember- dental fitness is a key component of Soldier readiness and total body wellness. Let us help you maintain yourself in the best possible health!
