Now my aim in life is to join the armed forces. But I am in a dilemma now. I met with an accident last week. I lost two teeth from my lower jaw and I am planning to undergo dental implants treatment in Aurora
. Will it affect my desire to join the army? I have heard that there are some dental conditions to be satisfied for joining the army. Any insight on this would be great. Thanks in advance.
Go to the page I link to in the first post from me......you''ll see other criteria, age requirement is:
Be 17 years of age, with parental consent, or older, except:
Regular Officer Training Plan – Junior applications must be 16 or older.
Reserve Force - Applicants may be 16 years of age if they are also enrolled as a full-time high school student.
So if you can't get parental consent, you'll have to wait until your 18, or join the reserves
