    We have it and haven't had a problem! If you don't have dental coverage, you'll be paying MORE out-of-pocket costs!

    It is worth having, but if you have the opportunity to supplement it and know you have dental work that needs to be done (extensive) then it is worth getting a supplemental.

    We have it and Im not complaining, its better than no coverage at all...they give each person up to $1200 a year in coverage so it just depends on how much work you need done...

    It's worth having.. especially if you're in an area where you can find someone who only charges you the portion that Tricare won't cover and doesn't price gouge.

    I was quoted $1,000 to get my teeth back up to par in TX, but waited until we got to SD, and got it all done for less than $200 because our dentist here works with military.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    We haven't had any issues. The only thing we have paid out of pocket for were 2 cavaties to be filled for our DD. Together it was less than $100 and it was at separate times. We also had them fill them with the white filling. If they filled them with the silver one it would have been less.

    The fact that we have no out of pocket for cleanings and check-ups makes it worth it! My older two have also had their teeth sealed and each kid cost me $20, but I seen the itemized bill that they send showing what they cover and with out coverage, those sealants would have been over $100 per kid!
    "What's so good about good-bye? It is good to be reminded that life is brief, at best, with no dress rehearsals, and the seasons we are privileged to share together are even more fleeting. Good-bye is good if it teaches us to cherish the life and breath, strength and sound mind, and the moments we are allowed to walk side by side with a friend. Good-bye is good if, in that difficult moment, we stand still long enough to give thanks to God for the lessons we've learned together, the love given, and the love received, recognizing that these are gifts from the hand of God." ~Marshele Carter Waddell
