Navy Dental Officer / Dentist / Dental Student

Company: America's Navy
Location: Columbia
Posted on: February 15, 2020

Job Description:

Navy Dental Officer Navy Dentists are just like those with private practices-except they deliver the same quality care onboard ships and bases all around the globe. Whether you're helping Sailors and families around the U.S., personnel aboard an aircraft carrier, or participating in worldwide humanitarian aid, Navy Dental Officers have the ability to make a big difference. Our offices are brightly lit, stocked with top-of-the-line equipment and filled with patients daily. Train across many departments, fund your education and join the collaborative network of Navy Dental Officers. Responsibilities: In the Navy Dental Corps, you will do everything a typical dentist would do including perform checkups, fill cavities, offer preventive care and specialize in a unique dentistry field. But as a Navy dentist, you're expected to serve not only in a traditional dentistry environment, but also on ships, in foreign countries and in times of humanitarian need. Work Environment: Navy Dentists may serve at any one of more than 250 Navy and medical facilities around the globe, from Hawaii to Japan, Germany to Guam, and Washington, D.C., to Washington state. As a Navy Dentist, you could work at one of the highly acclaimed National Naval Medical Centers in Bethesda, Md.; Portsmouth, Va.; and San Diego, Calif. Or you could support deployed troops aboard one of two dedicated hospital ships: the USNS Comfort and USNS Mercy. Still more opportunities are available stateside and abroad - onboard a surface ship, working closely with a nearby aircraft squadron, or even with the Fleet Marine Force. Training & Advancement: Upon graduation from dental school, those pursuing a Dentist position are required to attend Officer Development School (ODS) in Newport, R.I. ODS is a five-week program that provides a comprehensive and intense introduction to the responsibilities of Navy Staff Corps Officers. Here they learn about the military structure of the U.S. Navy, its rich history of traditions and customs, leadership development and military etiquette. Promotion opportunities are regularly available but competitive and based on performance. To qualify for employment consideration in the Navy Dental Corps, you must be: -- A U.S. citizen currently practicing in the U.S. ---------------- A graduate of an eligible dental school approved by the American Dental Association ---------------- Licensed to practice in a U.S. state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or a U.S. territory (new graduates must obtain a license within one year of beginning Active Duty service) ---------------- Willing to serve a minimum of three years of Active Duty ---------------- Between the ages of 21 and 41 ---------------- In good physical condition and pass a full medical examination ---------------- General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you intend to serve Active Duty or Reserve Duty, and whether you are currently serving, have served before or have never served before. -- Education Opportunities: Wherever you are in your dental career, the Navy can help ease your financial burdens and advance your career with generous scholarships, financial assistance and continuing education programs. -- Plus, if you're a student or resident, you can concentrate on your education or training with no military/training obligation until after your program is completed. -- Students -- The Navy may pay for your education. That means you could emerge from dental school debt-free. A Navy Dental Recruiter can help you choose the program that offers you the greatest advantage. -- In the Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP), you can receive 100% tuition coverage during dental school, PLUS: -- ---------------- A sign-on bonus of up to $20,000 ---------------- A monthly stipend in excess of $2,200 to help cover living expenses for up to 48 months ---------------- Reimbursement for many out-of-pocket expenses (dental kits, health insurance, books, supplies, etc.) ---------------- In the Navy Health Services Collegiate Program (HSCP), you can receive anywhere from $157,000 to $269,000 while attending dental school. This includes: o---- A monthly military salary o---- A generous housing allowance* o---- A comprehensive health-care benefits package -- Offers have many variables. To get details and find out which offer would benefit you most, request that a Navy Dental Recruiter contact you. -- *Navy HSCP housing allowance based on dental school location. Increased offer amounts available in areas with a higher cost of living. -- Residents -- The Navy Financial Assistance Program (FAP) offers potentially more than $275,000 during your dental residency. That consists of: -- ---------------- An annual grant of $45,000 for up to four years (on top of normal resident pay) ---------------- A monthly stipend in excess of $2,200 to help cover living expenses for up to 48 months ---------------- Reimbursement for many out-of-pocket expenses (dental kits, health insurance, books, supplies)
