Dental Care Alliance Welcomes Five New Orthodontic Locations in VA
Sarasota, FL –Dental Care Alliance (DCA), a leading dental support organization, continues to grow nationally with the recent affiliation of Klar Voorhees Orthodontics, a group of five dental practices serving the Virginia Beach communities.
Drs. Neal A. Klar, Marni E. Voorhees, Patrick B. Holmes, and Sarah Pavon Groy provide orthodontic treatment including, traditional metal braces, self-ligating braces, clear ceramic braces, clear aligners, and lingual braces to the Virginia Beach, Suffolk, and Chesapeake, VA areas.
David Pegg, Chief Development Officer at DCA, said, “We are thrilled to have Klar Voorhees Orthodontics as key DCA partners. Their commitment to patient care and community service is evident at every level. Their offices and services complement our other DCA-supported group in this community, Konikoff Dental Associates. Now with 15 affiliated practices in the Hampton Roads areas of Virginia, patients can benefit from increased access to specialty dentistry and continuity of care.
DCA’s mission is to improve the practice of dentistry by partnering and supporting our dental professionals, so they can create a lifetime of healthy smiles for their patients. Formed in 1991 and headquartered in Sarasota, Florida, DCA now supports approximately 270 affiliated dental practices across 15 states, making it one of the largest multi-branded dental support organizations in the US. DCA-affiliated practices provide a full suite of dental services, including general dentistry, hygiene, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and oral surgery.

Founded in 1991, DCA is one of the largest multi-branded dental support organizations in the U.S. with more than 320 affiliated practices in 20 states. DCA-affiliated practices provide patients with a wide range of dental services including general dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics. DCA provides dentists with clinical autonomy, career satisfaction, and growth opportunities by reducing day-to-day administrative responsibilities so they can focus on providing the best clinical care to each patient.
As a dentist that is actively engaged in entrepreneurship and leadership programs, I have seen many different businesses respond to this unprecedented crisis that we are all living through. DCA, thanks to its strong leadership, acted much more rapidly to COVID-19 than others and has continued to lead the way for affiliated offices more effectively than, in my opinion, any individual or group of dental practices.
Having a support center that is constantly evaluating the situation and guiding us how to respond and communicate to our teams has been key to navigating this crisis. I believe that, due to the immediate response and ongoing direction we are receiving from the support center, DCA offices will come out of this environment much stronger. From support on HR issues to working with clinical leadership to document the new PPE and infection control protocols that we will implement, the guidance from DCA has helped our office stay way ahead of the industry.
Additionally, knowing that the economic burdens that come with this type of event have been eased by DCA’s strong industry partnerships, breadth of knowledge and access to capital allow us to focus and respond as positively as possible to imminent situations, rather than react in ways that would not be beneficial for the long-term.
