FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Aspen Dental practice is opening in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia on Thursday, November 12. Located at 17 Parkway Drive, the conveniently-located practice will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration. 

Dr. Songkhla Venza, lead dentist at the Fort Oglethorpe office, received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at Georgia Regents University. Dr. Venza looks forward to meeting the Fort Oglethorpe community and providing much-needed access to dental care and education.

The Fort Oglethorpe office, located in Catoosa County, is one of 21 Aspen Dental practices in Georgia, a state where 128 of 159 counties, including Catoosa, have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

According to a study conducted in 2013 by Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, each new Aspen Dental practice 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.

Aspen Dental practices offer patient-friendly programs and services that help thousands of people every day get the dental care they need, including:

  • Personalized treatment and friendly service. Quick-fix solutions don't solve larger or chronic oral health problems. At Aspen Dental practices, 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. And since no one likes an unexpected bill, the practice offers benefits like a price guarantee and insurance estimate guarantee as part of its Peace of Mind Promise.
  • Affordable care. Cost shouldn't prevent patients from getting the dental care they deserve. That's why Aspen Dental practices are committed to keeping prices low, as well as offering 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.
  • On-site denture labs and a Money-Back Guarantee for denture patients. Every Aspen Dental practice is equipped with an on-site denture laboratory, which helps facilitate quick turnaround for 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. Getting used to dentures takes some time, but 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, so that patients can see the dentist at a time that works best for their schedule. Walk-in and emergency patients are welcome.

To make an appointment, patients can call (850) 238-3326 or 800-ASPEN DENTAL (800-277-3633), or visit
