Make an Appointment - DTF-referred

All non-remote active duty service members (ADSMs) must receive a referral from their military dental treatment facility (DTF) before receiving private sector dental care. This website provides additional information on the steps you need to take after receiving the initial referral from your military DTF.

If your DTF refers you to a civilian dentist for additional dental care, you should receive an informational flyer and a Referral Request Confirmation page from your DTF to take with you to your dental appointment. The Referral Request Confirmation page contains the Appointment Control Number that was provided by United Concordia as well as the procedures you will receive from the civilian dentist. Your DTF may also send X-rays with you to your private sector dental appointment.

Extended Leave (e.g., block, terminal, returning from deployment): This guideline applies to all ADSMs who are assigned to a military installation with an onsite military dental treatment facility (DTF). If you are on extended leave more than 50 miles from your DTF, you must call United Concordia at the number listed below to coordinate private sector dental care prior to receipt of care. Please ensure that you inform us of your extended-leave status.

Additional information about covered services and program guidelines is available on this website or by contacting United Concordia at 1-866-984-ADDP (2337).
