COVINGTON, La., May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The first of 11 Aspen Dental-branded practices in Louisiana is scheduled to open in Covington on Thurs., May 18. Appointments are now available online or by calling the office.
Located in Suite 200 at 70383 Highway 21, the dental office is led by Dr. Chedly Schatzie Vincent, who received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Vincent and her team will provide dental services ranging from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.
As part of Aspen Dental's Healthy Mouth Movement community giving initiative, the Covington office will provide free dental care to veterans on June 24. The practice is one of the more than 400 Aspen Dental offices nationwide that will open their doors to serve veterans in their local communities. Interested veterans should call 844-ASPEN-HMM to find a participating Aspen Dental office and schedule an appointment in advance. Advance appointments are required.
As Aspen Dental teams work to break down the barriers to dental care among underserved populations in Louisiana, 10 additional Aspen Dental practices are scheduled to open in 2017 – making access to dental care easier for residents in the Bayou State. The 11 new Aspen Dental practices are located in 10 different parishes, eight of which have dental health professional shortage areas (HPSAs) as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
According to a study conducted by Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, the 11 office openings in Louisiana will contribute more than $14 million in positive economic impact through job creation and capital investment.
Aspen Dental offices offer patient-friendly programs and services that make it easier for thousands of people every day to get the dental care they need, including:
- Personalized treatment and friendly service. Each patient receives a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan designed by the dentist with long-term oral and overall health in mind. Available services include hygiene, treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work.
- Affordable dental care. Aspen Dental practices are committed to keeping prices low so that patients can get the care they need. The practice works with all insurance providers and handles the paperwork, saving patients time and hassle, and offers free new-patient exams and X-rays for patients without dental insurance. And since no one likes an unexpected bill, the practice offers a clear, detailed estimate on the cost of treatment to give patients peace of mind.
- On-site denture labs and Denture Money Back Guarantee - Every Aspen Dental practice is equipped with an on-site denture laboratory, which means quick turnaround for new and replacement dentures, denture repairs, relines or adjustments. Patients choose Aspen Dental for the seven styles of full and partial dentures and have the comfort of knowing that the supportive dentists and staff will go above and beyond to ensure proper fit and comfort of their custom-crafted dentures. If patients are dissatisfied with their dentures for any reason – the practice will refund the cost of the dentures when patients return them within 90 days.
- Convenient hours and location. The office will be open extended hours, including evenings and select Saturdays. Walk-in and emergency patients are welcome.
