Dental Emergencies

Personnel requiring any non-life-threatening emergency oral or dental treatment with no other injuries or problems requiring immediate medical attention must contact the Brigade Dental Duty Section. The Brigade Dental Duty Section will triage each case and determine whether to treat in the Brigade Dental Clinic or to refer to a higher level of care. 95% of dental emergencies can be handled in house.

Qualifying Dental Emergencies

The following events would be considered non-life threatening injuries or problems that would be referred to the Brigade Dental Duty Section:
  • Pain in tooth or gingiva (gums)
  • Laceration (cuts) of lips or oral tissue
  • Avulsed tooth due to trauma (tooth knocked out)
  • Intruded, extruded, or mobile tooth due to trauma
  • Edema (swelling) or hemorrhaging (bleeding) without difficulty in respiration

Dental Emergency Contact Information

The Brigade Dental Duty Section after-hours emergency contact number is 443-822-2254. This phone number is manned 24/7, 365 days a year. 

Dental Emergency Out of USNA Area

If the member requiring emergency dental care is away from the Naval Academy due to Leave or TAD:
  • If greater than 50 miles from a military dental clinic, the member will contact United Concordia at 866-984-2337. The member will have to verify eligibility and will seek ONLY emergency dental treatment with any civilian dentist.

Midshipmen Dental Appointment Failure Policy

Your Brigade Dental Clinic works on an appointment only basis for most services, except emergencies/sick call, annual examinations, flight physical examinations. It is essential that we fill all of our scheduled appointments and keep failures to an absolute minimum to work efficiently.

If you cannot attend your appointment please call us as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment. A minimum 24 hour notice to change a scheduled appointment is required. No-shows for appointments and cancellations less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment will be considered a failed appointment.

Any medical or dental appointment is considered your assigned place of duty at that time. You will be notified by email if you fail an appointment. Your Company Officer will be notified of a second appointment failure and any ensuing failures will be reported to the Office of the Commandant for action.

Active Duty Staff Failure Policy

The same applies to Active Duty Staff in that your dental appointment is your appointed place of duty. A minimum 24 hour notice to change a scheduled appointment is required.

No-shows for appointments and cancellations less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment will be considered a failed appointment. If you fail an appointment your Chain of Command will be notified of your failure.
