Arlington, Va. – Dominion National, a leading dental and vision insurer and administrator headquartered in Arlington, Va., announced that it is partnering with SmileDirectClub, Inc. (Nasdaq: SDC), the oral care company with the first telehealth platform for teeth straightening, to offer its members access to SmileDirectClub's orthodontic clear aligner program.
Dominion members with orthodontia coverage on its PPO plans will receive in-network coverage of SmileDirectClub's convenient, remote orthodontic care that has been provided to more than 1 million individuals. Dominion members without PPO orthodontia coverage also will be able to take advantage of discounted pricing through this partnership.
Dominion members will have three ways to get started on their SmileDirectClub journey: with a 3D scan performed at one of SmileDirectClub’s SmileShops; at a SmileDirectClub Partner Network affiliated dentist or orthodontist office; or with a doctor-prescribed, at-home impression kit. Treatment is prescribed and monitored remotely by state-licensed dentists and orthodontists from start to finish using SmileDirectClub’s pioneering teledentistry platform.
“We are excited to extend the SmileDirectClub program to our customers for a cost-effective orthodontia option,” said Dominion President Mike Davis. “Dominion continues to support teledentistry models, including remote orthodontic care, for increased customer convenience, savings and emphasis on preventive care.”
