Many USA Section Fellows are providing a free dental examination and Panorex x-rays with bitewings for Peace Corps applicants if called upon. The dentists are not compensated for their time, equipment or supplies.
Note to Peace Corps Applicants and ICD Dentists: If our ICD dentist shares a dental practice, please do not schedule an appointment with a partner, as he or she may not be a Fellow on our list of providers. Applicants are asked to allow for ample time to fit an appointment into the dentist's schedule. If the dentist's staff is not familiar with our program, email Kylie Evans firstname.lastname@example.org in the ICD USA Section Office before booking an appointment for a free panorex with four bitewings (or a full-mouth series of radiographs), dental and perio exams.
Applicants are to bring the Peace Corps dental examination form to the appointment. Any dental treatment needed to bring an applicant's mouth to a healthy state will be the financial responsibility of the Peace Corps applicant. An applicant may choose to be treated by his/her own dentists. As part of the dental exam packet, the applicant will have a form titled Cost-Share Authorization Dental Examination. Our ICD dentists' gift to both the applicant and the Peace Corps is to do the examination at no charge to either. The $60 Cost-Share allowance funds can then remain in the Peace Corps Treasury. Cost-Share funds are not available for dental treatments.
