Does US Navy offer dental insurance?

Pros

The Navy has one of the best technical schools I have ever attended. I was an aircraft electrician and found it to be a very demanding but rewarding environment. Pay started off low, but over time with advancement and housing allowance is competitive to civilian sector. Saw many cool places and met some amazing people. The life experiences are something I will carry with me and be proud of for the rest of my life. Many benefits. Full medical / dental while in, cheap life insurance, tuition assistance, newly added 401k matching, if desired 20yr pension plan, food allowance, many military discounts from theme parks to auto insurance, and more. After separating there are VA benefits, college and rent payed for by the 9/11 GI Bill.

Cons

Work / Life balance is challenging. Often needed to work long hours, possibly weekends. When deployed it can be challenging to be away from your love ones for such a length of time. Leadership is young and under-trained in how to manage people more often than not.

Advice to Management

More leadership training is needed. Other branches seem to train NCOs better. Maybe forcing Lean Six Sigma training as part of petty officer indoc.
