Talina, a resident of Thorp, Wis., was encouraged to visit the Belle Isle Aspen Dental practice while traveling on business after a bad toothache became unbearable. She was selected to have her photo featured on the No. 39 Chevrolet SS based on the following review she wrote at  

"I hadn't been to the dentist in about a year because I had a bad experience with my last dentist, and had been very nervous to go back to another. The staff at Aspen Dental was sincere and extremely nice to me. They explained all the procedures to me, and didn't rush me out the door. I was very much at ease, and I was completely satisfied when my visit was over. I highly recommend this office and the staff to all my friends and family. I will return to them in the future for any dental work that I may need. Thank you Aspen Dental for everything that you did for me!"

Aspen Dental began featuring patients' photos on Newman's Chevrolet during the 2012 Sprint Cup season, and will continue the tradition throughout the 2013 season.

Motor Speedway on Saturday, May 18, and during the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International on Sunday, Aug. 11. For all other respective races within the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Aspen Dental is an associate sponsor with placement on the lower-rear quarter panels of the No. 39 Chevrolet and prominent sponsorship logo position on Newman's uniform.
