The Virginia Dental Association (VDA) is a non-profit organization of dentists committed to enhancing the professional lives of our members - 3,500 of the best and brightest dentistry has to offer.  Together, we champion better oral health care for all Virginians.

It’s been ​over 145 years since a small group of nine dentists founded the "Virginia State Dental Association". Since then we’ve grown to become a constant trusted resource for ​Virginia dentists and their patients.

Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.


How to File a Complaint with the State Corporation Insurance Commission

Information from the State Corporation Commission:

File a Complaint Online: Use the Consumer Complaint Portal* to submit your complaint. (We encourage you to review the Frequently Asked Questions before you begin.)

*NOTE TO HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS: If you are submitting a complaint on behalf of a particular patient, you must obtain the insured's authorization in order for our office to contact the insurance company on his or her behalf. If you are experiencing problems with an insurance company which are more general in nature, or which involve a number of patients and/or claims, please call our office before submitting the complaint.

When you submit a complaint, please be sure to provide us with the information listed below. This will allow us to handle your complaint much quicker.

  • Your name, address, and the name of the insured person (if different)
  • The name and address of the insurance company and/or the agent/agency
  • Policy or group certificate number, if applicable
  • Claim number and date of injury or loss
  • Type of insurance
  • A detailed explanation of your problem (i.e. what happened, who was involved, and why you think the company or agent is wrong)
  • How you tried to resolve the problem
  • What you think the company or agent should do (pay a claim, make a refund, etc.) to resolve your problem

To thoroughly review your concerns, we ask that you provide as much detail as possible when you submit your complaint. Please attach copies of all supporting documentation to the completed complaint form. Be sure to keep your original documents for your records.

If you wish to discuss your complaint or receive assistance on how to file a complaint, you can call our toll-free number, 1-877-310-6560, or contact the section directly. You may reach our Life and Health Consumer Services Section at (804) 371-9691 or the Property and Casualty Consumer Services Section at (804) 371-9185.
