November is Military Family Appreciation Month. This month, thank a military service member or veteran, and their family for everything they do. Being the spouse of a retired military member, I know first-hand the sacrifices and contributions military families make every day. A thank you is unexpected and will mean so much.
My husband served in the Marine Corps for 20 years. Between the rigorous training schedules, schools, and deployments, we joke that my husband and I were only under the same roof during half of our marriage. While he was away, I was the one at home that did it all; the work, the worrying, the coaching, carpooling, etc. Being a military spouse isn’t always easy but knowing that their partner is serving their country is very gratifying. The one thing I never had to worry about was our health and dental coverage. I know that if or when anything went wrong, our insurance was there to protect us.
MetLife honors and recognizes military families for all they do too. Through the TRICARE Dental Program (TDP), they are helping military families provide quality dental care for themselves. This month, take a minute to review your dental care coverage and take a look at the TDP. Military sponsors can enroll themselves (if serving in the National Guard or Reserves), their spouses, and children in program right away. Coverage will provide you piece of mind knowing that when it’s needed, it’s there for you. Benefits include 2 no cost dental exams and cleanings with network dentists each year, no cost space maintainers for children under the age of 19, and 50% cost share for orthodontic care (up to age 21 or 23 if a full time student) with a $1,750 Lifetime Maximum Benefit per enrollee. Learn about the other benefits on the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program website.
Having three children, who all inherited my teeth, I know how important good dental insurance is for yourself and your family. I have a small jaw and as a child, I had braces for several years. All of my children inherited my small jaw and, because of it, will need braces at some point. My oldest child actually just got his braces over the summer. I don’t even want to think about the cost of those braces without dental insurance.

Who will you thank this month for their military service?
