Luke AFB 56th Dental Squadron

The 56th Dental Squadron provides active-duty members comprehensive dental care while supporting the readiness of the 56th Fighter Wing to respond to worldwide contingencies.

The Dental Clinic is on the first floor of the main clinic directly across from the pharmacy waiting area. Routine dental care is limited to active-duty personnel.

Specialties offered to active-duty personnel within the facility are comprehensive general dentistry, prosthodontics and periodontics. Dental staff members may refer patients requiring complex specialty care to local civilian dental specialists. Routine dental care such as examinations, fillings, cleanings and sick call for active-duty members are provided by appointment only.

Routine active-duty dental sick call patients are seen by appointment Monday through Friday. Call 623-856-2273 to schedule all appointments. Patients experiencing severe pain, swelling, infection or oral trauma (for example, a split lip or tooth/teeth knocked loose) during normal duty hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., should call 623-856-2273 for a sick-call appointment. If you suffer these symptoms after duty hours, call the after-hours answering service at 623-856-2273. The service will contact the on-call dentist to evaluate and treat your complaint promptly.

Active-duty family members are encouraged to enroll in the TRICARE Dental Program at www.tricare.mil/dental. Retirees may also enroll in the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program at www.trdp.org.
