ABERDEEN, S.D., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Access to dental care in South Dakota is about to get a healthy boost with the addition of three new Aspen Dental practices, the first of which will open in Aberdeen on Thursday, August 13.
The three new locations scheduled to open in South Dakota this year will provide much-needed access to affordable, quality care, including dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.
Together, the three new office openings will provide almost $4 million in estimated economic impact to local economies in South Dakota. That's based on a study conducted by Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management which indicates each new Aspen Dental-branded office brings $1.3 million in economic benefits through investment in office construction, furniture and fixtures, jobs creation, wages and benefits, taxes, and investment in marketing and advertising.
The first new Aspen Dental-branded practice is located in Brown County at 3307 7th Avenue SE STE 108 in Aberdeen.
Dr. Iyad Alyo, DDS, University of Southern California, is the lead doctor at the Aberdeen practice.
Practices will open in Sioux Falls and Rapid City later this year.
Two of these practices are in the 66 counties in South Dakota located in dental health professional shortage areas (DHPSAs) as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
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, 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-branded 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 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 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.
Patients can schedule and appointment by calling (850) 238-3326 or 800-ASPEN DENTAL (800-277-3633), or can make a dental appointment online at www.aspendental.com.
