I am in need of extensive, major dental restoration. Treatment cost is thought to be around $15,000. I have had ugly teeth since childhood, and this would be a dream. I was discharged in 1992. Enrolled with VA medical, and 60% disabled. Not high enough for VA dental. Any help or suggestions?

A3:  If not eligible for VA Dental Care, the national VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) gives enrolled Veterans and CHAMPVA beneficiaries the opportunity to purchase dental insurance at a reduced cost. Explore the VADIP Fact Sheet or the VADIP Frequently Asked Questions brochure.  (AP)  12/3/16

A4:  If you have a Disability Rating of 100%, your dental should be covered at the VA. Remember this however, The VA is Government and they accept the lowest bids. when I got my teeth they were bucked on the top. I don't wear them.  (JK)  12/4/16
