Emergency Dental Care
Emergency dental care is defined as uncontrolled pain, bleeding or rapid swelling/significant trauma to the oral-facial structures. Immediate care is available for all beneficiary categories. Sick call is held in the clinic on duty days by appointment; active-duty members have priority. A dentist and technician are on call after duty hours, including family days, weekends and holidays, for consultation and management of dental emergencies. Patients must report to the MOFMC emergency room at Nellis AFB during these after-duty hours for initial triage and management.
