All National Guard and Reserve members must complete an annual dental examination to determine dental readiness. The Department of Defense Active Duty/Reserve Forces Dental Examination Form (DD Form 2813) is used to assist National Guard and Reserve members in documenting dental health.
If enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program, MetLife participating dentists will complete the DD Form 2813 at no additional cost to you. You are responsible for scheduling the examination, providing the form to the dentist, and reporting the results to your service branch.
Please contact your service branch representative to determine your service-specific requirements for this document before scheduling your annual dental exam.
