Our Dental Program provides multi-specialty care to Veterans who meet eligibility requirements. We have locations at the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center in Muskogee and at the Tulsa VA Dental Clinic, located at 5110 South Yale, Suite 200.
Dental services provided comprehensive Dental Treatment to Eligible Veterans to include:
- General Dentistry
- Endodontics (Limited)
- Oral Surgery (Limited)
- Dental Hygiene
- Periodontics (Limited)
The primary mission of the Dental Program is to provide comprehensive, appropriate and effective oral Health Care, essential to veterans' medical needs and as defined by statute, in an atmosphere that promotes continuous improvement in the quality of that care. The Dental Program strives to maximize the productivity with which these services are provided in order to provide the broadest scope of care to the maximum number of veterans, while complying with or exceeding external regulatory requirements, relevant professional standards, and patient expectations. Secondary missions include supporting excellence in staff education.
Diagnostic, consultative, and emergency services are available to inpatients, to long-term care, nursing home and domiciliary residents, and to outpatients and employees (with emergencies). Following clinical assessment, comprehensive dental care is provided to outpatients, consistent with VA regulations delineating both eligibility and the range of services available by eligibility classification. Comprehensive services are also rendered for nursing home, long-term care and domiciliary residents.
VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP)
The Department of Veterans Affairs provides comprehensive dental care to Veterans who meet eligibility standards; however, the benefit is not available to many Veterans. VA would like all Veterans and beneficiaries to have access to good oral health.
VA’s Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) offers enrolled Veterans and beneficiaries of VA’s Civilian Health and Medical Program (CHAMPVA) the opportunity to purchase dental insurance at a reduced cost. VA is offering this service through Delta Dental and MetLife. Learn More
