As a dental officer in the Commissioned Corps, you can focus on clinical practice without the demands of maintaining a business and enjoy leadership opportunities you won't find in private practice. Every day will offer new challenges as you bring oral health care and education to the underserved and disadvantaged patients who need it most. You can also work in forensic dentistry, assisting in public health emergencies and disaster recovery efforts. As part of a national team of committed health care professionals, you'll be serving your country and making a difference while enjoying excellent benefits and work/life balance.
“From primary preventive care and basic restorations to complex surgery and rehabilitation cases, dentists in the Corps do important work for people in need—people who wouldn't have access to dental care if it weren't for us. We make a real difference in the Nation's public health.”
