CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aspen Dental, the largest branded network of dental offices in the U.S., celebrated a major milestone today with the opening of the 700th Aspen Dental branded office in Nokomis, Florida. The opening brings the total number of Aspen Dental locations in Florida to 80, once again expanding access to care in the Sunshine State.
“I couldn’t be more excited to open our doors and begin seeing patients here in Nokomis,” said practice owner Dr. R. Dustin Dixon. “My team and I are focused on helping patients get the care they need today, breaking down the barriers by offering patient-friendly programs and services, including convenient locations, onsite denture labs and extended hours.”
The milestone is even more poignant because it comes as Aspen Dental celebrates its 20th anniversary.
“We’ve come a long way since Aspen Dental was founded 20 years ago,” said Bob Fontana, chairman and CEO of Aspen Dental Management, Inc., a dental support organization. “What began as a handful of dental practices in upstate New York now stands at 700 locations in 38 states, and I’m so proud of the positive impact that the dentists whose practices we support are having on their communities and the patients who walk through their doors every day.”
The office in Nokomis commemorated the occasion by having a “floss cutting.” The office is located in Sarasota County – which has been designated as a dental health professional shortage area by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
