Abstract:

The United States Army Dental Corps has a long and distinguished history of professional service to the soldier. In war, the mission of the Dental Corps is to preserve the fighting strength by the restoration and preservation of oral health and function. The structure to fulfill this mission has remained unchanged for many years although some commanders have informally augmented their units with non-TOE specialists in order to better accomplish their wartime missions. In peacetime, the Dental Corps provides comprehensive dental care for soldiers to ensure they are in optimal oral health and prepared to deploy. Dental care is provided to other authorized beneficiaries as space and time permit.
