Since 1998, the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) has been providing Uniformed Services retirees and their families with affordable dental care. There are no age limits for you or your spouse and you can enroll at any time. New retirees have an exclusive opportunity to enroll within four months after retirement and skip the 12-month waiting period for major comprehensive services like braces, crowns and implants. Enrolling in the TRDP can also help you:

  • Maintain your oral health and quality of life. The TRDP offers you a wide scope of dental procedures to help you improve and maintain your oral health, with 100% coverage for routine diagnostic and preventive services like two exams, a set of bitewing x-rays and two cleanings in a calendar year. What’s more, a third cleaning is covered for diagnosed Type 1 or Type 2 diabetics. Be sure to talk with your dentist to see if a third cleaning is right for you.
  • Save money. Choosing a dentist from our large TRDP network of dentists can save you on your out-of-pocket costs. Find a dentist near you. Learn how the average cost of TRDP premiums for one year compares to the cost of annual preventive care in Dollars and Sense.
  • Access your coverage anytime, anywhere! Your TRDP coverage is portable, meaning it travels with you. Whether you live stateside or overseas, you have access to your TRDP coverage. And if you find yourself needing emergency dental services when you’re traveling, you can rest assured that the TRDP’s got you covered.
