Our Dental Program provides multi-specialty care to Veterans who meet eligibility requirements. We have locations at the West Haven and Newington Campuses, which are open weekdays from 8:00am to 4:30pm.
Dental services provided comprehensive Dental Treatment to Eligible Veterans to include:
- General Dentistry

- Dental Hygiene
The primary mission of the Dental Program is to provide comprehensive, appropriate and effective oral Health Care, essential to Veterans' medical needs and as defined by statute, in an atmosphere that promotes continuous improvement in the quality of that care. The Dental Program strives to maximize the productivity with which these services are provided in order to provide the broadest scope of care to the maximum number of Veterans, while complying with or exceeding external regulatory requirements, relevant professional standards, and patient expectations. Secondary missions include supporting excellence in staff education and in the training of dental health professionals.
Diagnostic, consultative, and emergency services are available to inpatients, to long-term care, nursing home and domiciliary residents, and to outpatients and employees (with emergencies). Following clinical assessment, comprehensive dental care is provided to outpatients, consistent with VA regulations delineating both eligibility and the range of services available by eligibility classification. Comprehensive services are also rendered for nursing home, long-term care and domiciliary residents.
