Alexandria, Va. – Dominion Dental Services (Dominion) is pleased to announce that it has been selected to participate in the Virginia Benefits Market, a private exchange that provides small businesses access to health insurance plans including dental, vision, life, disability, critical illness and more.

Dominion is one of two stand-alone dental carriers and the only vision carrier that will be offered to over 20,000 local businesses and an estimated 300,000 eligible employees in Virginia.

“Considerable effort has gone into the carrier vetting and selection process,” said Kenn Penn, President and Chief Executive Officer of ChamberSolutions, an organization designed to help chambers achieve operational excellence. “We are extremely pleased with the scope, depth and breadth of our product options. The fact that we have some of the top names in employee benefit offerings is a testament to the strength of the Virginia Benefits Market.”

To help prepare for the 2015 open enrollment period, Virginia Benefits Market will host regional meetings with local chambers of commerce and training sessions for insurance professionals.

“We are excited to be awarded the opportunity to offer cost-effective, high-value dental and vision plans through the Virginia Benefits Market,” said Dominion President Mike Davis. “This platform will be a great enrollment tool for Virginia Chambers of Commerce members and we are pleased that ChamberSolutions recognizes the value that we bring to its clients in the rapidly growing private exchange marketplace.”
