We Accept Dental Insurance Plans in Virginia Beach
When you have dental insurance from your employer, you will probably find that you have friends and family insured by the same company. Their plans may cover more or less of their dental care cost than yours, as each employer negotiates their employees dental insurance plan. Once you find, “a dentist near me who accepts my insurance,” you will realize that even if your plan has a higher co-pay, you are still saving a significant amount of money compared to being uninsured. You should know that our fees are your responsibility if your insurance company does not pay your claim.
