Our DS received his appointment for Class of '21 but in some of the recent FB discussions, the subject of him still having his wisdom teeth has come up. It seems like this is a big deal (?) and should ideally be rectified before Plebe Summer. Can anyone please confirm?

Do a search for wisdom teeth on the forum; lots of discussion and wisdom (no pun intended)

Agreed, 1/c had them out Friday AM, back in class on Monday. Nothing left but the pictures, and a few more bucks in my FSA.

Active duty here, its no biggie. When your teeth are ready you can just request an evaluation and 1,2,3, pop, no more wisdom teeth.
You may or may not get them taken out at USNA. If they are ready to come out, they are going to yank em'.
