Dental has nothing to do with K-1 petition/visa or process, there is no dental exam for K-1.

so the medical exam doesnt include the doctor checking your oral health? (not trying to be annoying here, but i work in the medical field and a complete physical should include oral health as well) Thats great if it doesnt apply here though.......guess my fiance was confused....

They don't do a "complete physical". They're looking specifically for something that would make the applicant inadmissible to the United States for medical grounds. That means communicable diseases that are a public health risk, mental illness that makes the applicant a danger to themselves and/or others, or drug or alcohol abuse. Other than coughing up TB infected sputum, there's not much that could be going on in someone's mouth that would make them a public health risk in the US.

^This. They don't give a damn if you have tooth decay or something. They are trying to prevent TB outbreaks in the US and such. For the record, the CDC considers the following to be communicable diseases of public health risk. This doesn't match exactly with excludeable diseases, though. For example, the Obama Administration reversed the ban on immigrants with HIV.

Active tuberculosis, infectious syphilis, gonorrhea, infectious leprosy, chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale, and HIV infection.
