Operation Dental Care

Operation Dental Care addressses the dental care needs of area veterans who do not have private dental insurance and do not meet eligibility requirements for dental care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). It started on a trial basis in February 2016 and we soon found that the need to make it a formal program existed. Through this program, veterans can be seen for both emergency and comprehensive care. Since February 2016, over 100 veterans have been seen and we have provided just over $10,000 worth of dental services, with new veterans being added regularly.  

In a collaboration with the Fox Valley Veterans Council (FVVC), co-pays are covered by the FVVC, when care is initiated through the council. Area veterans choosing not to go through the FVVC can still receive care at TCD, but co-pays will be charged according to household income. 

Eligibile Veteran applicants may qualify for dental services, based off their income which is at 400% of the Federal Poverty Level
