November is National Dental Hygiene Month, and TRICARE officials urge people to learn more about their dental health. Practice good oral care on a daily basis, and contact a dentist as soon as oral problems arise. TRICARE's dental coverage is separate from its medical coverage, and enrollment eligibility determines which dental program people can have. The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program is for retirees and their eligible family members as well as National Guard and Reserve members who, regardless of age, have transferred to Retired Reserve status. For information on TRICARE's retiree dental program, visit the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program webpage.
