Dental squadron seeking residency patients


NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The 99th Dental Squadron, Advanced Education in General Dentistry, at Nellis Air Force Base is seeking patients in need of multiple dental procedures that include but are not limited to; root canals, crowns, dentures, fillings, gum disease, and tooth extractions.

To qualify, the patient should present a need for three or more of these specialties (not the same procedure multiple times).

Applicants must be active duty, military retiree, military dependent or active duty dependent. Patients will be selected by the AEGD director, based upon what best fits the needs for the program.

There are no costs for any treatment provided through the dental residency program. If interested, call 702-653-2623 during our normal business hours – 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., between June 5 and 9 to schedule a screening appointment. Once all of the screening appointment slots are full all additional interested callers will be placed on a wait list.

If selected, the patient must have availability for appointments Monday through Friday as different clinics are held on different days throughout the residency year (Aug. 2017-July 2018).

Selectees will be called by the end of July 2017 to set up their first appointment. If you are not contacted it means that you were not chosen for the program.

If you are scheduled for a screening appointment there will be no treatment rendered at that time and no guarantee that you will be accepted into the program.
