The Fort Drum DENTAC has two clinics and an in-processing center. The clinic services provide routine and emergency treatment to active-duty military members only. Active-duty military members are encouraged to enroll their dependents in the TRICARE Dental Program (MetLife).
Fort Drum, known for its rapid and constant deployments, has embraced Go First Class (GFC) to ensure readiness of the force.
The GFC initiative will improve wellness and readiness while saving Soldiers a considerable amount of time by combining dental exams, cleanings and routine fillings into a single appointment. When appointments aren’t readily available, we offer Soldiers the option of using off-post Civilian providers through the Active Duty Dental Program.
