Frequent dental cleanings may help your overall health in many ways. If you are enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program, TDP covers yearly diagnostic and preventive services. During a 12-month period, the TDP covers two routine teeth cleanings. If noted on the claim form that you are pregnant or have a covered chronic medical condition, then a third routine teeth cleaning is covered. A healthy mouth may lower your risk for some serious medical issues, including stroke and heart disease. Make an appointment for your next cleaning now. For more information about the TDP, download the TRICARE Dental Program Handbook.
