BOSSIER CITY, La., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Appointments are now available at the new Aspen Dental office scheduled to open in Bossier City on Thursday, Aug. 31. The office will be open Monday through Wednesday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. as well as select Saturdays. Walk-in and emergency patients are welcome.
Located in Suite 100 in front of Walmart at 2494 Airline Drive, the new dental office is led by Dr. Andrew Lafont, who received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Lafont and his team will provide dental services ranging from dentures and denture repairs, to preventive care, general dentistry and restoration.
The Bossier City office, located in Bossier Parish, is one of five Aspen Dental practices in Louisiana, a state where 58 of the 64 parishes are designated as dental health professional shortage areas 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.
The new Aspen Dental office offers patient-friendly programs and services to make it easier for patients to get the dental care they need, including:
Personalized treatment and friendly service. Each patient will receive 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 gum disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work.
Affordable dental care. Aspen Dental practices are committed to keeping prices fair so that patients can get the care they need. The Bossier City practice will work with all insurance providers and handle the paperwork to save patients time and hassle, and offer free new-patient exams and X-rays. The practice also offers clear, detailed estimates on the cost of treatment to give patients peace of mind as well as a variety of financing options.
On-site denture lab and a Denture Money Back Guarantee. The practice is equipped with an on-site denture laboratory, which helps facilitate quick turnaround for denture repairs, relines or adjustments. The practice will offer seven styles of full and partial dentures so patients can be reassured that Dr. Lafont and his team 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. The practice repairs all dentures, not just those purchased at Aspen Dental.
