Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
Aspen Dental (http://www.aspendent.com), a leading provider of denture and dental services, announced today that its new office in Cranberry, Pennsylvania, will open its doors on Thursday, April 8. Located in Oak Tree Place plaza on Route 19, Aspen Dental will provide patients with high-quality denture and dental care and offer a wide range of affordable payment plan options. The opening marks Aspen Dental’s 32nd practice in Pennsylvania and 12th in the Pittsburgh area.
The Cranberry office will offer patients a variety of denture and dental services, ranging from preventive care to general dentistry to restoration. In addition to offering patients the choice of eight different styles of Aspen Dental’s exclusive ComfiDents® brand full and partial dentures, the new practice will provide comprehensive dental exams, hygiene services, treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work.
The office features state-of-the-art Kodak Dental Systems digital radiography products to better diagnose and treat patients, as well as 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.
Dr. Douglas Lippert, who will serve as lead dentist, received his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and has seven years of clinical experience.
Wide Range of Options for Denture Patients
Aspen Dental’s ComfiDents® full and partial hand-crafted dentures come in eight different styles, giving patients ¬¬more diverse and affordable options than are available at traditional dental practices. Patients can choose from dentures manufactured using two different technologies: heat-injection, which uses high pressure and heat with the highest quality materials to ensure the most precise fit available; and cold-pour, the traditional method that uses fiber acrylic. Regardless of which denture style patients choose, Aspen Dental doctors work with each patient to ensure proper fit and comfort.
As an added convenience to denture patients, the Cranberry office will have its own on-site denture laboratory, which typically ensures same-day turnaround for select new dentures, denture repairs, relines or adjustments.
Providing Access to Comprehensive Dental Care
Many patients do not visit the dentist regularly – according to a 2003 “National Call To Action To Promote Oral Health” by the U.S. surgeon general, fewer than two-thirds of adults report having visited a dentist in the previous 12 months.
Doctors and staff at Aspen Dental work to help break down the barriers that keep patients from getting the oral care they need. That’s why Aspen Dental offers convenient locations, extended hours, affordable fees, a wide range of flexible payment plan options and works with all insurance plans.
Additionally, to help encourage patients to take the first step toward good oral health, Aspen Dental offers free new-patient exams to patients that do not have the benefit of insurance; free denture consultations for all denture patients; special promotions and senior discounts.

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