Appointments are made by calling 717-245-4542.
Sick call patients are required to report to the clinic Mon - Fri: 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. National Guard and Reserve personnel are required to bring current orders to receive treatment. For dental emergencies after duty hours, report to the nearest emergency room.
The Dental Clinic attempts to remind individuals 48 hours in advance of the appointment. When a patient fails to show up for an appointment, there is a cost to both the patient and the government. Each no-show appointment represents a lost opportunity to provide dental services for our population, and it hampers our ability to meet dental readiness standards and access to care standards.
A no-show occurs when a patient with an appointment is not physically present in the proper dental clinic on the day and time of their appointment, arrives more than 10 minutes after the appointed time, arrives with a child less than 12 years old who will remain unsupervised during the appointment, or does not cancel the appointment at least four (4) clinic business hours in advance.
We ask that every effort is made to keep scheduled appointments in order that our resources are effectively utilized.
