The oral health of uniformed personnel shall be classified as follows:
Class1 – Patients with a current dental examination, who do not require dental treatment or reevaluation. Class 1 patients are worldwide deployable.
Class 2 – Patients with a current examination, who require non-urgent dental treatment or reevaluation for oral conditions, which are unlikely to result in dental emergencies within 12 months. This may include cleaning, maintenance therapy, fillings, etc. Class 2 patients are worldwide deployable.
Class 3 – Patients who require urgent or emergent dental treatment or can reasonably be expected to have a dental emergency in the next 12 months. Class 3 patients are not worldwide deployable.
Class 4 – Patients who have not had a dental exam in the last 12 months. Class 4 patients normally are not worldwide deployable until they have had an exam and or not deemed Class 3 as a result of the exam.
APG DCC provides annual dental examinations, cleanings, emergency and routine care to active duty Soldiers only. If the appointment wait is too long or the treatment beyond the scope of our providers or facilities a soldier may be referred for care to the private sector through the Active Duty Dental Program (ADDP). These referrals are directed through APG DCC. Any treatment completed in the private sector without prior authorization will be the billed to the individual Soldier for unauthorized treatment.

These students are eligible to the end of the month in which they turn age 23. If the student terminates his or her education prior to turning 23, eligibility ends at the end of the month in which education terminates.
2. They have a disabling illness or injury that occurred before their 21st birthday or between the ages of 21 and 23 if they were enrolled as a full time student at the time of the illness or injury, and they were more than 50 percent dependant on the sponsor for financial support.
