Dental Services (Bldg 1046) provides comprehensive dental care to active duty personnel in an effort to ensure Shaw AFB is "dentally ready" for worldwide duty. Eligible active duty family members should be enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Plan (www.ucci.com). Retirees and their families can enroll in the TRICARE
Retiree Dental Plan (www.ddpdelta.org) or may seek other types of dental insurance coverage. Covered benefits/procedures should be provided by the individual's participating network dentist. Space-available care is very limited, due to primary mission demands and other requirements.
Dental Emergencies: Same-day evaluation and management of dental emergencies (trauma, bleeding, swelling, infection, severe pain, etc.) is available for all beneficiary categories. Call 895-6988 during duty hours and 895-CARE (2273) during non-duty hours. NOTE: Non-active duty personnel must first attempt to access their network dentist, as this provides continuity of care. The cost of emergency service is covered by the TRICARE Dental Plan.
Access to Care: To schedule an appointment, please call 895-6988 or you may make it in person.
Duty Hours: Dental Services is open 0730 - 1630, Monday through Friday
