I participated in and Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions are 100% my own.
Most of you probably know, but for those of you who don’t, I come from a military family. My grandfather, my biological father, the man I call dad today, and my husband have all served so I am pretty familiar with TRICARE and the services they provide to members of the military and their families. I also know, that not everyone is aware of the benefits that they may be eligible for. Since February is National Children’s Dental Month, I think it’s the perfect time to introduce you to the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program.
I don’t know about you, but when my kiddos smile, everything is right with the world. As the mama of the house, it’s my responsibility to make sure mouths stay healthy and that means making sure they have proper dental care on a regular basis. Now I don’t know if ya’ll know, but the TRICARE Dental Program is not just for service members; benefits are also available to spouses and dependent children of active duty service members and Reservists. Coverage includes two cleanings and two exams per year at no cost when using network dentists. That’s a huge savings in comparison to having to pay the cost of basic preventive care out of pocket. Another benefit that I think is huge is that there is even orthodontic coverage for children up to 21 years old (and up to 23 years if a full time student).
Since there are network dentists virtually everywhere, the TRICARE Dental Program is ideal for military families because it is convenient and cost effective despite changes in life events, geographical locations, or military status. I know that’s a big deal to some as it seems like they’re PCS’d every time you turn around.
