IRs must have a current dental exam and be either dental class 1 or 2 to be classified as “medically ready.” An in-person dental exam at a military facility is required every three years. If an IR is due for a military dental exam and is not near an MTF, they may utilize the Reserve Health Readiness Program (RHRP) to see a civilian-contracted dentist in their area which will count as a military exam. Members can contact RIO/Information Resources Management (IRM) for information on the RHRP program by going HERE.

If a civilian dental exam is accomplished when a military exam is not required, it must be documented on a DD Form 2813, Department of Defense Active Duty/Reserve Forces Dental Examination, and submitted to the servicing dental clinic. IRs will show “yellow” or “due” for 90 days before showing “red” or “not ready/overdue”. The dental portion of IMR will show “red” or “not medically ready,” for two reasons: the IR is placed in a dental classification 3 status or the IR is overdue for their annual dental exam which reflects as a dental classification 4. If the IR is in dental class 3, this is a dental condition that needs to be resolved or corrected within 12 months. These IRs are restricted to performing IDTs and Annual Tour at home station only. Mandays, formal schools or duty away from home station are not authorized until the dental condition has been corrected and the dental class 3 is removed. The IR must be in military status at the time of the military dental exam appointment at the military dental clinic. You can find more information about dental readiness in AFI 10-250, Individual Medical Readiness. Members can submit documents and requests for RHRP Dental via myFSS HERE.

Dental assessments are required annually.  If you cannot be seen on base while in status, work with your civilian provider to complete the DD Form 2813 and upload in MyFSS HERE or send to your servicing MTF.
