All to Offer Full-Service Dental Care, Personalized Treatment Plan, Plus Evening and Saturday Appointments
SYRACUSE, N.Y., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Dental celebrates its first location in Texas on Thursday, September 12 with the opening of a new practice at 6109 Highway 191 in Odessa. The new office in Texas means that Aspen Dental dentists and staff now proudly serve communities in 27 states across the country.
Additionally, nine more Aspen Dental-branded practices are expected to open in Texas through the end of 2013. Aspen Dental provides dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.
As part of their commitment to provide expanded access to care, every Aspen Dental-branded practice in Texas will be open extended hours during the week and on Saturdays. The hours are Monday – Thursday from 8 am – 8 pm, Fridays, from 8 am to 5 pm, each and every Saturday from 8 am – 5 pm.
The Odessa office is led by Dr. Nimesh Shingala, DDS, who has been practicing dentistry for more than five years. Dr. Shingala received his degree from the University Of California San Francisco School Of Dentistry.
"Our team is thrilled to begin serving patients in the Odessa community," said Dr. Shingala, lead dentist of the Odessa practice. "There is a great need for better access to dental care in Texas, where 43 percent of the counties have areas designated as dental health professional shortages areas by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. We know that many patients struggle to find the time to visit the dentist, and so we're opening our doors on evenings and Saturdays as part of our commitment to making it easier for patients to access affordable, high-quality dental care."
