SYRACUSE, N.Y., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Dental is proud to announce that Dr. Gregory McCraith, DDS, has joined Aspen Dental in Cortland, NY. Located at 867 NYS Route 13, the practice provides dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration. The Cortland office opened in October 2012.
Dr. McCraith resides in nearby Bridgeport and brings more than 25 years of dentistry experience to the Cortland community. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Buffalo in Buffalo, NY and served as chief of dental medicine at Olean General Hospital prior to joining Aspen Dental.
"I am excited to join the talented staff of dental hygienists and assistants in the Cortland office and look forward to meeting the local community," said Dr. McCraith. "Our state struggles with a shortage of local dental professionals and I hope to help be part of the solution in providing the Cortland community with greater access to affordable oral care and education."
There are 41 Aspen Dental practices in New York, a state where an estimated 10.8 percent of the population, or more than two million people, live in a dental health professional shortage area, according to data on designated Dental Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
In addition to offering patients the choice of seven styles of Aspen Dental's exclusive ComfiDents® brand full and partial dentures, Aspen Dental will provide comprehensive exams, hygiene services, treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work. The office features digital radiography and offers advanced screening for oral cancer.
At this new Aspen Dental location, dentists and staff provide:
- Personalized treatment. Quick-fix solutions don't solve larger or chronic oral health problems. That's why dentists at Aspen Dental take a comprehensive approach to dental care. Following the initial exam and X-rays, each patient receives a customized treatment plan designed by the dentist with long-term oral and overall health in mind.
- Wide range of flexible payment options. Cost shouldn't prevent patients from getting the dental care they deserve. That's why Aspen Dental offers special promotions, senior discounts, and free new-patient exams and X-rays for patients without dental insurance. The practice works with all insurance providers and handles the paperwork, saving patients time and hassle.
- Convenient hours and location. The office will be open extended hours, including evenings and select Saturdays, so that patients can see the dentist at a time that works best for their schedule. Walk-in and emergency patients are welcome.
- Variety of options for denture patients. ComfiDents® full and partial dentures come in seven styles; giving patients more options than are available at traditional dental practices. Regardless of the denture selected, each is custom-crafted, and the dentist works with every patient to ensure proper fit and comfort. As an added convenience, Aspen Dental has its own on-site denture laboratory, which helps facilitate quick turnaround for denture repairs, relines or adjustments. Free denture consultations are available for all denture patients.
