Arlington, VA. – Dominion National, a leading dental insurer and administrator of dental and vision benefits headquartered in Arlington, VA, announced that it has donated mouth guards to local youth sports organizations in the Mid-Atlantic region. This is the second consecutive year that Dominion has donated mouth guards.
