DD 2813

The Defense Department form 2813 is the document most commonly used by the military to classify the dental fitness of servicemembers and contractors. There are four classifications.

Class 1: Worldwide deployable with no further treatment required.
Class 2: Worldwide deployable with need for non-urgent routine treatment.
Class 3: Nondeployable without treatment for urgent conditions that likely will cause a dental emergency within 12 months.
Class 4: Nondeployable with no examination documented within the past 12 months.

Class 1 is exactly what it states, no treatment needed. Most folks I put onto this class do have not teeth. People with no teeth are almost always a class 1 in my book. Very few people with teeth are placed in this category.

Class 2 consist of people with good dental health. If you need a cleaning or have a small cavity this will place you in class 2. If you are a class 2 be sure and ask your examiner what conditions made you a class 2 so that you may seek treatment for them before they become a problem.

Class 3 means you need treatment immediately. There are boxes in the class 3 section that allow the dentist to document what conditions you have that make you a class 3. Once these conditions are noted you have a road map of your dental problems.

The form then ask if X-Rays were consulted and the answer should be yes. A good dental exam requires X-Rays unless you have no teeth.
If you are planning on spending time in an austere environment I would use this system for assessing my dental status. An printable example of the DD 2813 is found at DD 2813

  5. Together with almost everything which appears to be developing throughout this particular area, a significant percentage of opinions are quite stimulating. Having said that, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to everyone that your remarks are generally not completely rationalized and in simple fact you are generally yourself not totally certain of the assertion. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.
