SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Dental  is opening its first location in Maryland – its 400th location in the U.S. – on Friday, September 6. Aspen Dental is proud to now serve communities in 26 states across the country with the opening of the new Hagerstown, Maryland office.

The new location in Hagerstown is located at 1730 Massey Blvd. The Hagerstown practice will be led by Dr. Zaid Al Anbaki, DMD, and a team of approximately ten dental hygienists, dental assistants and office staff. The practice will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.

Dr. Zaid Al Anbaki, lead dentist at the Hagerstown practice, received his Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from the University of Pennsylvania Dental School. Dr. Anbaki volunteers his time with the American Red Cross and looks forward to meeting the Hagerstown community and providing much needed access to high-quality dental care and education.

"On behalf of the Hagerstown Aspen Dental team, we are truly thrilled to join the community and have the opportunity to treat patients in Maryland," said Dr. Anbaki.  "Maryland, like many states, struggles with dental access shortage. We hope to combat this issue by providing affordable, quality dental care to Hagerstown patients."

The Hagerstown practice, located in Washington County, is the first Aspen Dental-branded location in Maryland, a state where 16 out of 24 counties (including Washington County) have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

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-branded practice, 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.
  • Affordable care and 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.
