SYRACUSE, N.Y., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Aspen Dental office is opening in Alton, IL on Thursday, December 12. Located at 1809-A Homer Adams Parkway, the practice will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.
Dr. Roy Bower, lead dentist at the Alton office, received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 1991. An Illinois native, Dr. Bower looks forward to meeting the Alton community and providing much needed access to high-quality dental care and education.
The Alton practice, located in Madison County, marks the eighteenth Aspen Dental-branded location in Illinois, a state where 78 out of 102 of the counties have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
According to a July 2013 study conducted by Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, each new Aspen Dental-branded office supports local community growth by contributing more than $1.3 million in positive economic impact through job creation and capital investment. The local community benefits through investment in office construction, furniture and fixtures; jobs created and wages and benefits paid; taxes; and investment in marketing and advertising. Each new office generates an average of ten healthcare professional and office staff jobs in the local community.
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 $19 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.
To make an appointment, patients can call (618) 433-3410 or 800-ASPEN DENTAL (800-277-3633), or visit www.aspendental.com.
