Billing, Insurance, and Financial Assistance

The Southwest Virginia Regional Dental Center accepts all patients regardless of their insurance or financial status.  Our federally funded health care program allows us to offer a wide range of services to patients through a sliding-fee scale; we also take most employment-based insurances, Medicaid and FAMIS.  We also offer a pay-in-full at the time of service discount for those who do not have insurance and do not qualify for the slide-fee program.  Call our office for more information.
