INFORMATION ON BECOMING AN ARMY DENTIST

As an Officer in the Army Dental Corps, you’ll spend time doing what you care about most — directly treating patients. You won’t have to worry about starting a practice, establishing a patient base, hiring staff or purchasing equipment because you’ll already be part of one of the best worldwide dental networks around.


A U.S. Army dentist does much more than practice in one area of dentistry. As an Officer and a dentist, you may have the opportunity to advance your education in areas such as oral surgery, prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and orthodontics.

You will work with other dedicated dental professionals, consult board-certified specialists and possibly participate in important dental research.

In addition to a generous benefits package, you will have the opportunity to pursue your education through continuing education courses, seminars and conferences.

You can decide either to serve full time as an Officer on active duty or maintain your practice in your community and serve as needed with the Army Reserve. Either way, becoming a U.S. Army dentist gives you a cumulative experience you can’t match anywhere in the private sector. And that’s part of a philosophy of the U.S. Army.

Helping others. Serving your country. Practicing your specialty. No other health care program can match the opportunities you’ll have or the professional experience you’ll gain in the Army Dental Corps.
