We provide comprehensive dental care for all active duty personnel assigned to Vance Air Force Base. Dental sick call is managed on an appointment basis. Periodic dental examinations are scheduled for active duty personnel through the Dental Clinic Air Force Dental Readiness Assurance Program monitor. Follow-up appointments are made at the time of the periodic dental examination appointment or by calling the Dental Clinic. Types of procedures performed include comprehensive dental treatment, as well as limited specialty care. Outsourcing to civilian dental providers may be used for active duty personnel if treatment is deemed necessary, and cannot be provided by the dental clinic as determined by the examining dentist. The dental clinic must generate a referral for you to seek civilian dental care. Treatment for dental emergencies, such as acute swelling, active bleeding, severe uncontrolled pain or trauma, during other-than-normal duty hours, can be accessed by calling the Nurse Advice Line. Dental care for non-active duty personnel is on a case-to-case basis.
