TRICARE Dental Program

Army Reserve: Retired

Benefit Fact Sheet



The TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) is a voluntary, high-quality, cost-effective dental care benefit for eligible Family members of all active duty Soldiers as well as Reserve Component Service members and/or their Families. TDP is offered by the Department of Defense (DoD) through the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA). The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife) administers and underwrites TDP for the TMA.


Retired Soldiers are not eligible for the TRICARE Dental Program. Instead, retirees and their eligible Family members may enroll in the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP), which is a premium-based program.
