It's true, you need a special dipstick that also reads the fluid temperature, then there's a conversion chart they used based on the level and temp to know if it's correct or not.
However, you can use your engine oil dipstick to at least have an idea. Here's what I did. After driving home from the dealer, my mom's and brother's to show off my new Jeep, I got home and started poking around and also noticed no trans dipstick. Now everything was still very hot under the hood so I pulled my engine oil dipstick, cleaned it off very thoroughly, then put it down into the transmission dipstick tube (fully seated). When I pulled it out, I had fluid up to the lowest mark of the engine dipstick. Now this doesn't tell me whether the fluid level is correct or not, but it does let me know if the level goes down, to have the dealer look at it. I assume the level was correct since I had just picked it up from them that day. So every now and then, after a long drive, I just check the level and make sure something's there. It's better then nothing.
