  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Dental For Non 100% Veterans At Va

Recommended Posts

Thursday I had an appointment at Dallas VA for Dental Checkup. When I checked out the clerk was not to busy so I asked him about treatment for non Dental Qualified Veterans.

He told me that if a Veteran had a bad tooth that needed pulling that the Dallas VA would do it for 100 dollars for xray and 200 bucks for pulling. He also told me that was a good deal and a lot of Veterans used this service.

This is in response to earlier threads where the issue was brought up.

In Washington state,

veterans who are 100% SC or TDIU only, may receive Dental treatment.

They don't even want to hear it. Take it somewhere else attitude.

You can get a tooth pulled, (with xrays)almost anywhere in the private sector for $300.

There are low income dental clinics, that will pull the tooth for less than $200.

Don't do what I've done. I've waited until an eye tooth was so infected, it took over two hours of agony to get it pulled.

I have a top front tooth now that's causing a sinus infection. I've had it for 3 months. That stimulus check will help take care of it.

I wanted to add that if a veteran was discharged with a dental condition they will also be treated.

If anyone not 100% or TDIU, and is getting treatment for dental, please post & let us know where & under what circumstances.

I cannot cite the regulation but I believe that if your gateway Doc files a request stating that the Dental work is needed to help prevent deterioration from a service connected injury that the Dentist will do it. Example service connected for sinusitis and infected gums or sever perdontial disease would also be possible if you have heart disease and they are afraid that you dental disease could complicate it.

All they have to do is ask for a consult and state why.

Are they any good? It seems with Dentists that the less they have to do the better.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
