First lets briefly go over what the Tricare Dental Plan is about.
As an active duty military member, the military gives me free dental coverage that includes basically everything I would need to get done
For your Family/Dependents, you can purchase the Tricare Dental Program for a minimal monthly fee. See table below.

When you enroll for payments you can either have them deduct the amount from your paycheck, do an EFT from your bank, and have it put on your credit card.
I would recommend calling and having them set it up so its automatically paid on your credit card. Why? More money in your pocket. You could be getting credit card rewards points
Family Plan would be $34.68/month = $416.16/year. You put this on your 2% cash back credit card and that's an extra $8 bucks a year. Not much but it takes like 5 minutes to set up. I'm going to be in the military at least 7 more years so that's an extra $50 in credit card reward points for making a 5 minute phone call.
How do I switch my payment to credit card?
Call 1-855-638-8371. Give them your credit card number and they will switch it from an EFT from your bank/paycheck to automatically billing your credit card every month instead. (Click here for more information)
