> VA - Health Care - Dental Care
Outpatient 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 Requirements:
Eligibility 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.
In some cases, you would need to be enrolled in the VA health care system to qualify. For information on the enrollment process, visit: http://www.va.gov/healtheligibility/
