TRICARE Dental Insurance Keeps Military Families Covered

TRICARE dental insurance provides coverage for your family’s dental care. TRICARE is a military healthcare program for service members and their families to receive care across the world. 

If you’re a service member and have a child, it’s important to make sure that your child’s dentist office accepts TRICARE to help cover the cost of dental care.

TRICARE Dental Plans

TRICARE offers three types of dental plans:

Active Duty Dental Program offers coverage for:

  • Active duty service members
  • Guard/Reserve members who are on active duty, issued delayed-effective-date orders or are covered by the Transitional Assistance Management Program
  • Service members who need line of duty care
  • Foreign force members stationed in the U.S.

TRICARE Dental Program is voluntary for:
