As commander of DENTAC-Korea and the 618th Theater Dental Command, I welcome you to our website. I and my staff appreciate the chance to take care of your oral health and that of your family.
We are committed to ensuring you obtain all necessary dental care during your stay in Korea through a combination of services rendered in US military clinics and referral to Preferred Host Nation Providers. Our in-house military and contracted providers render state-of-the-art care through the latest technology and services. They participate in continuing education to ensure they remain at the forefront of dentistry.
In the event you seek care on the civilian economy, rest assured that our selected Preferred Providers practice dentistry in line with US standards, engage in infection control and sterilization protocols in accordance with US standards and Center for Disease Control guidance, and usually accept MetLife insurance in lieu of upfront payment from the patient. Participation in TRICARE dental insurance occurs through a self-enrollment on-line process. Visit http://www.tricare.mil/bwe for more information. I and my staff look forward to overseeing care for you and your family. Our mission is to provide the best dental care and to ensure you successfully achieve your oral health and appearance goals.
COL Jae I. Hwang
