I am in need of extensive, major dental restoration. Treatment cost is thought to be around $15,000. I have had ugly teeth since childhood, and this would be a dream. I was discharged in 1992. Enrolled with VA medical, and 60% disabled. Not high enough for VA dental. Any help or suggestions?

I ended up getting awarded by Aspen Dental all my bad teeth pulled all my uppers and 4 lower molars and got the top of the line dentures for free! There may be dentist i. Your area. I have 90% and va refused me. Good luck brother. (DH) 12/2/16
A3: If not eligible for VA Dental Care, the national VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) gives enrolled Veterans and CHAMPVA beneficiaries the opportunity to purchase dental insurance at a reduced cost. Explore the VADIP Fact Sheet or the VADIP Frequently Asked Questions brochure. (AP) 12/3/16
A4: If you have a Disability Rating of 100%, your dental should be covered at the VA. Remember this however, The VA is Government and they accept the lowest bids. when I got my teeth they were bucked on the top. I don't wear them. (JK) 12/4/16
