Keeping smiles bright: dental clinic opens on Stewart

Fort Stewart retirees and military families can keep their smiles bright without having to go off-post thanks to the opening of a DOCS dental office at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service furniture store mini mall.

Fort Stewart Garrison Commander Col. Manuel Ramirez and a special celebrity guest, actress and entrepreneur Angela Simmons, joined Fort Stewart Exchange General Manager Hollie Morales and DOCS owner and CEO Dr. Lawrence Caplin in cutting the ribbon on the dental office on Oct. 22.

“The convenience of dental services on-post is a tremendous benefit to the Fort Stewart community,” Morales said. “The Exchange is committed to making life better for all who call Fort Stewart home.”

In addition to retirees and military dependents, Veterans with service-connected disabilities, Department of Defense civilians and other Common Access Card-holders can also visit the dental office.

The addition of the DOCS dental office is the latest step in the Exchange’s commitment to improving the quality of life for all who call Fort Stewart home. In the last year, the Fort Stewart Exchange has added a Bun-D restaurant, New Beginnings automotive care, Studio 78 hair salon and Ralphie’s Theatre & Pizzeria.

The DOCS dental office has seven operatory rooms and provides a wide range of services to include general dentistry, orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics and cosmetic. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and accepts all TRICARE dental plans for beneficiaries, as well as the Federal Employee Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) and other insurances.
