Dental squadron seeks qualified patients

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The 99th Dental Squadron and the Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program here are seeking patients not normally seen at active-duty dental clinics for a year-long residency program.

The residency program is for new dentists out of school who are undergoing advanced training on selected applicants who have dental problems a military dentist wouldn’t normally take care of.

Applicants must be either retired military, military retiree family members or active-duty family members with a combination of at least three of the following dental conditions; root canals, crowns, fillings, gum disease, or need complete dentures.

Patients will be selected by the AEGD directors for the residency program based on eligibility.

If selected, the patient must be available at least weekly throughout the residency year which runs August 2013 through July 2014.

Patient screening appointments will be held until July 12.

Selectees for the program will be called in August to set up their first appointment; the selectees will be a part of advanced training for the resident dentists. Non-selectees will not be contacted.

If interested, call Tech. Sgt. Nicole McKinstry at (702) 653-2623 or email nicole.mckinstry@nellis.af.mil.
