    Son was medically qualified in August 2007. He will be having his wisdom teeth out in December. Should we notify DODMERB and if so what should we send them?

    Unless there are complications there shouldn't be an issue. Go ahead and send the information to DoDMERB and the academy after he has been released to full activities by his dentist.

    Thanks. After my post here I searched the boards...sorry should have done it before...and saw your reply to someone earlier this year saying it wasn't necessary to send anything at all unless there were complications. Just out of curiosity...has this changed? I really appreciate your help.

    It hasn't changed, but in retrospect, it is better to provide information to DoDMERB, even if all they will do is glance at it, then to not provide it and have an issue later.
