General Dentist
Job ID: 35692
Location: New York
Position: General Dentist
Company: U.S. Navy Reserves

Serving part-time as a Navy Reserve Sailor, your duties will be carried out during your scheduled drilling and training periods. During monthly drilling, Dentists in the Navy Reserve typically work at a location close to their homes. This gives you the flexibility to expand your dental experience in the Navy without compromising your civilian practice at home.


As an Officer in the Navy Dental Corps, you will serve your country by helping the men and women who defend it – and others in need.

• Attend to Sailors, Marines and service members – as well as their families

• Contribute to humanitarian missions in this country and virtually anywhere in the world

• Introduce oral care to parts of the world where dentistry is more a luxury than an expectation

• Share your skills in domestic outreach that benefits the young, elderly and underprivileged

You will spend quality time with patients, maintain a flexible schedule, and be free of malpractice Insurance, expensive equipment and paperwork that falls on your shoulders in private practice.


In the Navy Dental Corps, you will provide the best dental care available for Sailors, Marines, service members and their families, wherever duty calls, doing everything a typical dentist would do:

• Perform checkups

• Fill cavities

• Offer preventive care

Plus, discover a more compassionate side of dentistry. That could mean contributing to humanitarian relief efforts in this country or virtually anywhere in the world. Caring for those who’ve never known the privilege of dental hygiene and educating people on the importance of proper dental health.


Through the Navy Reserves you can maintain your civilian career while serving as few as two days a month and two weeks a year. With opportunities for additional service and pay. With the possibility of arranging flexible drilling options to better meet service requirements. While enjoying many of the same advantages and benefits of full-time service.


• Be a graduate of an eligible dental school approved by the American Dental Association

• Be licensed to practice in a U.S. state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or a U.S. territory

• Be willing to serve a minimum of three years

• Be between the ages of 18 and 48 (Wavers available up to 57)

• Be in good physical condition and pass a full medical examination

As a Navy Reserve Sailor in the Navy Dental Corps, you’ll receive a first-rate benefits package including your choice of either $50,000 per year in specialty pay, up to $250,000 in medical school loan repayment assistance, or an immediate one-time sign-on bonus of up to $10,000. Reservists joining the Navy Dental Corps as residents can get up to $250,000 in dental school loan repayment assistance as well as a monthly stipend, dependent upon service commitment.
