COLUMBUS, Ohio (July 8, 2021) — Beam Dental is glad to announce that it is now licensed to provide employee benefits in the state of Virginia.

Beam will now offer dental and vision benefits to employers in Virginia. Vision plans are offered in partnership with industry leader VSP® Vision Care. With the addition of Virginia, Beam now provides employee benefits in 43 states. Beam has over 400,000 dental access points* and more than 31,000 vision access points through VSP® Vision Care.

“Beam strives to provide best-in-class employee benefits across the country,” said Alex Frommeyer, Beam CEO and co-founder. “We’re excited to introduce another state and begin working with brokers and employers in Virginia!”

Beam is changing the employee benefits landscape with a digital-first approach, simplifying the industry for brokers, employers, and members alike by making dental coverage:

  • Easy: Beam’s digital platform makes everything from quotes to claims fast and easy for brokers, members and employers.
  • Smart: Smart pricing driven by machine learning means benefits brokers can get more accurate custom quotes in as little as 30 seconds.
  • Preventive: Members who use Beam’s connected toothbrush may earn lower insurance rates§ based on their dental hygiene as well as incentives to maintain better wellness overall. Beam's brush program has produced over 54 million brushing seconds# to date, helping employers control their insurance costs and helping members earn rewards^.
