SYRACUSE, N.Y., April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Dental is proud to announce that a new Aspen Dental office is opening in Trussville, AL on Thursday, Apr. 25. Located at 1820 Gadsden Highway, the practice will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.

Dr. Prattipati, lead dentist at the Trussville office, received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry. Dr. Prattipati is eager to help the Trussville community achieve their best possible smile by providing much needed access to high-quality dental care and education.

The Trussville practice marks the third Aspen Dental location in Alabama, a state where an estimated 31.8 percent of the population, or more than 1.5 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.

Dr. Prattipati resides in nearby Birmingham and has been practicing dentistry for more than five years.  Her commitment to dentistry can be seen in her extensive community service, where she has often volunteered in her community, offering free basic checkups, dental treatment and dental hygiene education to the disadvantaged and elderly.

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.

To make an appointment, patients can call (205) 490-8515 or 800-ASPEN DENTAL (800-277-3633), or visit
