How do I arrange for specialty care?

Select Plan, ePPO and Discount Program members should get a referral from their general dentist. The dentist will evaluate your condition and refer you to a participating specialist as needed.

PPO members may receive services from any licensed dentist, including specialists, without a referral from a general dentist. For maximum benefits at the lowest cost, members should visit a participating Dominion dentist. To learn more about in-network savings, visit DominionNational.com/EOB and select “In-Network Advantages” in the PPO section.

Below are some examples and descriptions of various dental specialists.

  • Endodontist: Treats the roots and nerves of teeth.
  • Oral Surgeon: Treats problems related to the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth and jaws.
