My DS is candidate at USAFA and USNA. He has braces (March '17) and had to fill out a remedial - Orthodontic Questionaire. The orthodontist indicated Estimated date of removal/discontinuation...(and Estimated date for ALL active orthodontic treatment to be completed): June 2019. I called the orthodontist and they said it's likely he will get them off by April (we as parents are going to make sure of it because we did not plan on a treatment plan over 24 mos.- for a slight bite correction). Sent form to DODMERB on 10/30. When looked at DODMERB on 10/31 for both academies it had him Potential Pilot Qualified and Qualifed. Then on 11/2 that status changed to Disqualified Current orthod appliances/active ortho care beyond date of projected accession. Then status: Pending waiver submission/review. On his USAFA portal it shows his app as Incomplete but Disqualified Medically (everything is complete except doing his CFA 11/8 and his ALO interview), he has a nomination. On USNA it still doesn't show anything for DOD status. He will be getting x-rays and a check-up of his braces situation at the beginning of December. Should I have the orthodontist fill out another form with an update- indicating his braces will be off earlier (than what she had stated on the previous form)? Will this help his chances at getting off DQ?
