My son's letter says:
The DODMERB no longer includes a dental examination as part of its medical examination for USNA candidates.
You should make every effort to ensure that you arrive at the Naval Academy with excellent dental health in order to avoid loss of time from essential education, training, and opportunities to develop your leadership skills as you become integrated within the Brigade of Midshipmen.
Therefore, we recommend that you address any potential dental problems, including cavities, orthodontics and impacted wisdom teeth before your arrival in Annapolis. If you accept an offer to the Naval Academy, you will be expected to have no dental disease.
Should you accept this offer of appointment, please forward a recent panorex (within 1 year, ideally after the completion of dental work) for dental screening by Naval Academy dentists to:
This will assist us in evaluating your current dental health. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
(No mention of bite wings.)
