Going That Extra Mile to Make You Smile

Because everyone deserves a great dental experience.

At King Dental, we’re focused on three things: high-quality dental care, patient comfort, and accessibility. For us, dentistry isn’t a job or a chore; it’s a passion. We’ve been in the Virginia Beach area for over 50 years, serving and growing with our community. We treat our patients with kindness and empathy, and we have fun while we do it.

We believe that visiting the dentist should be a pleasant experience; that scheduling dental appointments and receiving care should be fast, easy, and convenient; and that offering great dental care is useless if no one can afford it. Driven by these core values, we strive to help all our patients achieve optimal dental health.

From basic checkups and cosmetic solutions to the latest in pediatric dental solutions, our team has the expertise to ensure that you and your family leave our office smiling bright.

Rising health care costs are stressful, but we believe everyone deserves to have the best oral health possible. We’re constantly working to keep treatment costs down for our patients. We accept all insurances and most credit cards and offer no-interest payment plans.


Our dental team constantly seeks out the best and latest continuing education courses, going above and beyond state requirements. We’re continuously adopting the latest dental technical innovations so that we can ensure that our patients receive the highest level of care.
