At the Gentle Dental Center, we are proud to serve a loyal base of military patients in both
of our Virginia Beach, VA locations. Accordingly, we are pleased to say we have made the decision to continue offering a full range of services to our Military Dependents who are enrolled in TRICARE Dental Insurance.
TRICARE has been underwritten by MetLife since 2012. Starting May 2017, United Concordia will take over as TRICARE’s Dental Plan underwriter. With this change (as with what happened in 2012 when MetLife took over the contract with Tricare), many military families will have to find new dentists. Gentle Dental Center has chosen to maintain continuity for their military families by accepting United Concordia insurance.
Dental offices will receive lower reimbursements from United Concordia, and many dentists have opted not to remain In-Network when the change takes place. It is not without costs to our office that we make this choice; however, we are committed to providing the same outstanding care we always have to military families affected by this insurance change.
We understand it is hard enough to navigate military insurance without losing your dentist. At Gentle Dental Center, we are dedicated to our military families and plan to work with insurance to be able to continue to offer a full range of dental services. Call or go online to schedule your next cleaning today (757) 431-1300 Holland Road or (757) 689-2940 Landstown.
