TORRINGTON, Conn., Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Dental is proud to announce that Dr. Stephen Coppola has joined Aspen Dental in the Torrington, CT location at 1692 E. Main St. The practice provides dental services ranging from dentures and preventative care to general dentistry and restoration. The Torrington office opened in 2004 and relocated to its current location in May 2014.
After working at Aspen Dental for years as an office manager, Dr. Coppola was inspired to go to dental school to help patients get easier access to dental care. He earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Boston University before joining Aspen Dental again, but this time as a lead dentist.
"I was helping to break down barriers to care with Aspen Dental as an office manager and the passion I had for dentistry lead me to pursue a career as a dentist. Now I'm excited to join the talented staff in the Torrington office to break down the same barriers, but as a lead dentist," said Dr. Coppola. "Connecticut struggles with a shortage of dentists and I hope to be part of the solution by providing greater access to affordable dental care and education to the Torrington community."
The Torrington office, located in Litchfield County, is one of 17 Aspen Dental practices in Connecticut, a state all eight counties, including Litchfield, have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
