Hello everyone! Next week, I'm scheduled to have my wisdom teeth removed. I know this is pretty close to the 6 week period of time between getting them removed and I-day, but I am doing it of course with the recommendation of my civilian dentist. However, I've run in to a little speed bump. After the removal of my wisdom teeth, I will have to notify DoDMERB. After telling this to my friend, who is a veteran of the DoDMERB process, he recommended that I not have them removed and proceed to have them removed as a cadet. I, just like most of you reading this thread, know how tough DoDMERB can be. I don't want to get them removed and then get a letter from DoDMERB saying that I removed them too close to I-day, and therefore am now medically disqualified. I will be calling DoDMERB on Monday, but I am now debating to put off my surgery until I am a cadet. They do not cause me significant amounts of pain and are not bothering me, and I do not want to have any reason for DoDMERB to doubt my status. Then again, I do not want to have any setbacks while I am going through the standard medical processes at the USAFA. Does anyone have any experience in this particular scenario? Are there any recommendations? Will the representative at DoDMERB be able to give me an accurate prediction as to what my medical status would be after the surgery? Thank you all very much!
