Important COVID-19 Updates


DTFs that wish to refer dental care under the ADDP should follow applicable State guidelines during the pandemic. Additionally, the following ADSM dental care treatment options are available for all DTFs:

  1. Defer DTF dental care until a later date
  2. Schedule an appointment for DTF dental care
  3. Submit a referral in DART+ for private sector dental care under the ADDP

DTFs should not instruct DTF-assigned ADSMs to contact United Concordia for a status change from “direct care” to “remote” to obtain dental care. If and only if there are no DTF alternatives will the Defense Health Agency (DHA) consider converting ADSMs from direct care to remote status. DTFs who wish to have their ADSMs converted to this remote status must request permission through their chain of command to DHA for approval.

Active Duty Service Members:

As some States are relaxing their dental-procedure restrictions in some or all of their counties, the ADA recommends referring to applicable State guidelines to determine the dental care available for your area.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency (emergency dental care includes any treatment necessary to relieve pain, treat infection, or control bleeding) you should:
