BATON ROUGE, La., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Appointments are now available at the new Aspen Dental office scheduled to open in Baton Rouge on Thurs., June 15. Located in Suite 1 at 13730 Millerville Greens Blvd., the practice provides dental services ranging from dentures and preventative care to general dentistry and restoration.
The new dental office is led by local resident Dr. Robert Hastings, who was born and raised in Baton Rouge. After graduating high school, he attended Louisiana State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science. He moved to New Orleans, where he attended LSU School of Dentistry and graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surge (DDS) in 2014.
"Our area struggles with a shortage of local dental professionals and I hope to be part of the solution in providing the Baton Rouge community with greater access to affordable oral care and education," said Dr. Hastings.
The Baton Rouge office, located in East Baton Rouge Parish, is the second Aspen Dental practice in Louisiana, a state where 58 of 66 parishes, including East Baton Rouge, have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
According to a study conducted 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.
Aspen Dental offices offer patient-friendly programs and services that make it easier for thousands of people every day to get the dental care they need, including:
- Personalized treatment and friendly service. 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.
- Affordable dental care. Aspen Dental practices are committed to keeping prices low so that patients can get the care they need. The practice works with all insurance providers and handles the paperwork, saving patients time and hassle, and offers free new-patient exams and X-rays for patients without dental insurance. And since no one likes an unexpected bill, the practice offers a clear, detailed estimate on the cost of treatment to give patients peace of mind.
- On-site denture labs and Denture Money Back Guarantee - 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.
