Arlington, Va. – Dominion National, a leading dental and vision insurer and administrator headquartered in Arlington, Va., is extending teledentistry coverage indefinitely to help ensure members have convenient access to virtual dental exams.
Dominion’s coverage will apply to in-network teledentistry consultations for limited, problem-focused evaluations. Any teledentistry services provided will count toward applicable benefit frequency limitations.
Dominion first extended teledentistry benefits in March 2020 to help ensure access to dental care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Even with the majority of dental offices now open for non-emergency treatment, there are still customers who are apprehensive about returning to the dentist during the pandemic,” said Dominion President Mike Davis. “While not a replacement for in-person dental treatment, teledentistry is a convenient way to help maintain a happy and healthy smile in between regularly scheduled dental appointments. We are pleased to extend this benefit to our customers to help keep them engaged with their oral health.”
Davis, a strong advocate for teledentistry, serves on the American Teledentistry Association Advisory Board and has presented at several conferences on the rise and benefits of teledentistry.
