    Hey guys I'm wondering about how the medical exam is when you arrive in cape may. I know they do a dental exam and I have one big cavity. I'm worried if I would be discharged because of it..anyone have answers?

    You won't be discharged for a cavity..if anything I'm pretty sure they'll fix it for you. They basically get you started on your medical through the military, making sure you don't have to get your wisdom teeth taken out while underway or anything that would hinder your duty.

    Considering how many people get numerous cavities filled, caps put on, root canals, and wisdom teeth pulled, I doubt it will end your CG career. If you are that worried, can you get it fixed before you go?

    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    I understand what you're saying and I cannot get it fixed before bootcamp. I simply do not have the funds. So what you're saying is, if it's fixable when I get there, they will fix it? And if it's not, no big deal?

    Everything is fixable. If it is extensive, they might keep you in Cape May after you graduate to continue the fix. If it is just enough that they can send you on your way, they will and you can get it fixed at your unit. One cavity will not get you sent home. You'll be fine.
