Military and Dependents

ABC Orthodontics respects all veterans, whether active or retired, as well as their families for the service and sacrifices they make. We treat members of every branch of military service and create adaptable treatment plans for you and your family, even if you are transitioning to or from a new location.

Active Duty

Our orthodontist and team work with dental officers and corpsman at the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) on a weekly basis. Since we understand operational and military commitments, we work closely with military dentists and their active-duty patients to develop a treatment plan that accommodates those requirements. Most patients will be screened by the dental clinic on base and instructed on which one of these two options they can take:

  1. If your orthodontic needs require any surgical procedures, you may qualify for the military to fully fund your treatment at ABC Orthodontics.
  2. If you need routine orthodontic services, the military will refer you to our office for a free consultation, where we can discuss treatment options and payment plans.

Please call us at 928-726-0990 if you have any questions about your unique situation.


We are certainly here to help transitioning military families with their orthodontic needs. We regularly work with families who are moving to and from different duty stations. So, whether you are arriving in Yuma, Arizona, or leaving, we will help address your smile goals regardless of which part of the treatment process you are on. If you are arriving with braces, want to start the process of doing braces or need to transfer to a new orthodontist in your next location, we will make your orthodontic care as easy and straightforward as possible. Let us handle the insurance, transfers and records for you.

Thank you so much for your service. Dr. Jessica Thayer hopes to serve you soon at our orthodontic practice.
