Who is Eligible for Routine Outpatient Dental Care?

  • Veterans who were prisoners of war.
  • Veterans recently discharged from active duty who did not have their dental treatment completed before discharge. They can receive one-time treatment if their DD214 shows dental treatment was not completed. An application must be made within 180 days of separation from active duty.
