If you’re a veteran, you could be eligible for free dental care through the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Your child’s dental care may also be covered by an insurance program like TRICARE.
It’s important for you to find a dental clinic offering the best dental care for your kids. Learn more about your eligibility for free dental care, and find clinics that honor TRICARE insurance for your little ones.
The VA offers many different programs for military veterans who meet certain eligibility requirements. Did you know that if you just got out of the service, you may be eligible for a free dental exam?
To learn if you are eligible for free dental care through the VA, see this guide to dental care benefits for veterans.
You may be eligible if you meet the following criteria:
If you are not eligible for free VA dental care, you may be eligible to purchase dental insurance at a reduced cost. The VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) gives enrolled veterans and beneficiaries the opportunity to buy reduced cost dental care coverage from MetLife.
