I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
April was the month of the Military child. I never realized there was a whole month set aside just for recognizing military children as our daughter was born after my husband was discharged from active duty. For current active duty military families though, I think this was an important month because really, what’s more important to families than their children?
My dad was in the military when I was a kid and it’s tough. My mom and dad were divorced at the time, but it did mean I had to go long periods of time without seeing him depending on where he was stationed. Some kids have even more to deal with when parents have to relocate or even worse, when they’re deployed overseas. Even through all of that though, those babies still have reasons to smile so it’s our job as parents to make sure those smiles always shine bright. One way to keep those smiling faces beautiful is by making sure those kiddos are receiving regular dental care with the MetLife TRICARE dental program.
You may have seen me write about MetLife TDP before and how it offers dental coverage for military families. This program is available to all dependents of active duty service members and Reservists, including spouses and children (even stepchildren, adopted children, and court-ordered wards). That means no kiddo is getting left out when it comes to receiving necessary dental care.
