Question

I am 100% P & T and need to have an implant which I figure would cost me $3,000 to $4,000. Right now I have private coverage which basically pays zero so I was thinking of going the VA route. Who do I need to contact to start the process of seeing a VA dentist? Also do they generally have dentists at the VA hospital or do they have outside dentists contracted to do the VA dental work? Answers to these questions and any other information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If you were to go to the medical center eligibility office they will do the rest. However, you will have to under months of long awaiting appointments before they will start you on implants. They have a process that they use that is long when it comes to implants at least where I go. You cannot use your Choice Card for dental work either.

Good luck if you are in Dallas The VA Dentists would rather pull your teeth and a committee has to decide if you are implant worthy.
