New location to provide affordable, full-service denture and dental care.

Aspen Dental (, a leading provider of denture and dental services, will celebrate the grand opening of its Machesney Park, Illinois office on Wednesday, December 30. The office, located in the Gateway of Machesney Plaza at 1564 West Lane Road in Machesney Park, will provide patients with high-quality denture and dental care and offer a wide range of affordable payment plan options.

“There are many reasons that patients put off making a dental appointment, from affordability and convenience to concerns about how much time has passed since their last exam,” said Carlos Sallis, DDS, lead dentist. “We want visiting the dentist to be as easy and comfortable as possible for our patients, and invite the people who live and work in Machesney Park and the surrounding communities to visit our new office.”

Dr. Sallis has been practicing dentistry for nearly 30 years. He earned his DDS degree from the University of Illinois.

Aspen Dental will provide patients with a full range of denture and dental services, including hygiene, oral surgery, fillings, whitening and crown and bridge work. Aspen Dental is the only authorized provider of eight styles of full and partial hand-crafted ComfiDents® brand dentures. As an added convenience to denture patients, the Machesney Park office will have its own on-site denture laboratory, which ensures same-day turnaround for select new dentures, denture repairs, relines or adjustments.

The Machesney Park office, which will employ about eight to 10 staff members, will feature state-of-the-art Kodak Dental Systems digital radiography products to better diagnose, serve and treat patients. The new office will also provide patients with Vizilite Plus®, the most advanced technology in oral cancer screening. Vizilite Plus® uses a blue-light, “glowstick” technology that detects oral cancer at its earliest stage.

Aspen Dental offers free new-patient exams, special pricing on x-rays for new patients without insurance, special pricing on dental and denture services for all patients, and senior discounts.

The office will be open extended hours, including select Saturdays, and will work with all insurance providers. Walk-in patients and emergencies are welcome.
