Dental emergencies for active-duty Soldiers

 

During duty hours, the Soldier should report to their assigned dental clinic for minor dental emergencies. Soldiers with extensive trauma should report to the Winn Army Community Hospital Emergency Room. After normal duty hours, the Soldier should report to Winn Army Community Hospital Emergency Department. The emergency department staff will evaluate the problem and contact the dental officer on duty if indicated to render appropriate dental treatment. A dentist and an oral maxillofacial surgeon are available on an on-call basis through the Emergency Department 24 hours a day.

 

Dental emergencies for family members

 

In the event of a family member or retiree dental emergency, individuals should seek treatment from their private dentist or network provider. In the case of extreme emergencies, the Fort Stewart Dental Activity can see family members for true dental emergencies only. This is strictly to assist the individual until their private dentist can take over the emergency treatment. This emergency-only care will normally entail suturing lacerations, reimplanting avulsed teeth or simple palliative treatment (such as providing pain medications, antibiotics or placing a temporary filling). Those seeking dental emergency treatment should report to the Winn Army Community Hospital Emergency Department and will receive a screening to determine whether the on-call dentist will be contacted. Dental emergency treatment is not for dental sick call.

Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB)

The Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) on Fort Stewart is responsible for the command and control of approximately 600 Soldiers in transition. Every Soldier is assigned to a triad of care consisting of a primary care physician, a nurse care manager and a squad leader. The triad of care manages the Soldiers’ medical care as well as oversees the well-being of the Soldier and their family members. The triad encourages the Soldier and family to actively participate in the recovery and rehabilitation process. A WTB Soldier’s first priority is to heal. The Fort Stewart WTB works to provide the environment that assists Soldiers in returning to the force or returning to their community as a veteran and a leader. In support of the priority to heal, the WTB maintains an active employment, education and internship program, which provides Soldiers with opportunities that challenge them to reach their fullest potential. Its adaptive sports program provides the opportunity for Soldiers to accomplish goals, regain function or discover new abilities. The WTB works closely with the Soldier and Family Assistance Center to provide additional resources or assist assigned Soldiers and their families. Whether a Soldier is returning to the fight or facing a new life outside of the military, the Fort Stewart WTB is here to ensure the highest quality of care for all Soldiers.

Veterinary Services

The goal of the Fort Stewart/HAAF
Veterinary Treatment Facility is to provide professional veterinary care of the highest quality in a timely manner to all authorized military personnel and their privately owned animals. We tailor all medical treatments and recommendations to the individual animal. The veterinary officers of this facility are tasked primarily with the assurance of food safety for humans and the medical and surgical care of the military working dogs. We will always strive to provide excellent service with a high level of client satisfaction. Our ultimate mission is to protect our Soldiers and family members and the general public of the United States by preventing the spread of infectious diseases among animals and humans. The veterinary clinics offer annual exams, a variety of vaccinations and tests, deworming, microchipping and sick-call appointments.

The Fort Stewart Veterinary Clinic is located at 461 W. Bultman Ave., Building 1180, and the Hunter clinic is located at 1030 Flying Fortress Road. The Fort Stewart Clinic is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The HAAF Clinic is open 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday. To schedule an appointment, call 912- 767-4194/0357. Treatment at both facilities is by appointment only; no walk-ins please. In case of an emergency after regular business hours, contact the Savannah emergency Veterinary Clinic at 912-315-6113.

All lost pets found on Fort Stewart are taken to the vet clinic’s stray animal facility. Be sure to check with the vet clinic if you have lost your pet. The clinic also offers adoptions. Lost pets that are not microchipped or claimed after three business days will be put up for adoption. If you find a lost pet please call the MPs at 912-767-2822 who will then dispatch animal control. All pets residing on post must be registered with the VTF, be current on vaccinations and be microchipped. Soldiers who fail to comply with these post regulations will result in the loss of VTF privileges (until proper documentation is provided) and will be reported to Balfour Beatty.
