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, and are displayed as green in MEDPROS..
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, but will be displayed as amber in MEDPROS.
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 and are displayed as red in MEDPROS.
Class 4 – Patients who have not had a dental exam in the last 15 months. Class 4 patients normally are not worldwide deployable until they have had an exam and are not found to be Class 3 as a result of the exam. Patients whose last exam was more than 12 months but less than 15 months prior will be displayed as amber in MEDPROS. Those how are over 15 months due for an exam are displayed as red in MEDPROS.
APG DCC provides annual dental examinations, cleanings, emergency and routine care to active duty Soldiers only. Annual dental examinations should be scheduled in advance by calling the APG Dental Clinic front desk. Walk in exams will only be seen on a stand-by space available basis.
APG DCC is participating in the US Army Dental Command (USADENCOM) Go First Class initiative. Whenever possible, Soldiers are scheduled to receive a cleaning at their annual exam appointment. Soldiers with good oral health will not need to return to the dental clinic for another year.

· Learn how to keep your mouth healthy so you only need a cleaning on the AKO My Dental Website at www.us.army.mil/suite/page/442957
If the waiting time for an appointment 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). Any treatment completed in the private sector without prior authorization will be the billed to the individual Soldier for unauthorized treatment.
