I came to Delta Dental of Virginia after 11 years with another large company in Roanoke and one year with a healthcare company in Nashville, TN. As someone with that many years of experience in the corporate world, I knew what I was looking for in an employer.
High on my priorities list was a stable, secure company that was making a difference in the community. I also needed to be somewhere that my contributions were valued and I was given the autonomy to do my job, but also support from my team and supervisor when I needed it. I am thankful to say I’ve found all that and more at Delta Dental. I truly feel I am part of a team of professionals who provide valuable insight, as well as look to me for expertise and guidance.
Not only is Delta Dental known as the top dental insurance provider, but as a responsible corporate citizen that gives back to communities across Virginia. We support each other, and we support the people we serve through team member charitable campaigns and the Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation.
Our vision is to create more smiles and healthier people, and that includes those who work here. We have access to an onsite gym, free yoga classes, a nurse practitioner, free flu shots and the best health insurance plan I’ve seen at any company.
I am confident I made the right decision in joining the Delta Dental family. I am thrilled to be part of this organization and to see where we go in the future. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Delta Dental to anyone who is looking for their next career opportunity.

I came to Delta Dental after multiple years of simultaneously working three and four jobs, struggling to feel stable or secure, and questioning what direction my career was headed. After accepting a position with Delta Dental of Virginia, I immediately felt welcomed and that my coworkers wanted me to succeed. For the first time in my career, I felt that my efforts were seen and appreciated. Prior to working here, I never felt that my employer saw me as anything other than a number. Here, they genuinely care about me as a person, not just “employee xyz.”
There’s a strong feeling of community within the company. We reach out to one another for help and expertise, and by doing so, we all have the opportunity to learn new processes and grow our skills. The emphasis on working as a team to accomplish tasks is such a refreshing change from everywhere else I’ve worked.
One of the great things about this company is that they actually want their people to learn and grow. I have never been at a company where they will offer to pay for seminars to help you excel in the workplace. They also have an amazing tuition reimbursement program, and will be flexible with your work and class schedule. I’m halfway toward getting an accounting degree, and my team supports me while I take classes and exams.

Employees who are willing to go the extra mile – that is what makes us successful! It creates a bond among co-workers and then it spills over to our clients. Dr. Byron John, our founder, had such a giving, caring nature. This same spirit has continued throughout my 35 years at Delta Dental of Virginia.

There are many wonderful reasons to work for Delta Dental. The main reason I LOVE my job is because I feel valued, and they really care about a work/life balance. I have worked in customer service for 20 years, and this is the first place to allow me to express my opinions and take them into consideration. They also truly care about the communities in our area with the programs set up for providing low or no cost dental care for those in need.
