SYRACUSE, N.Y., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Dental (www.aspendent.com), a leading provider of denture and dental services, announced today that its first practice in the state of Nebraska will open its doors in Omaha on Thursday, April 1. Located in Fudd's Plaza at 7059 Dodge Street, Aspen Dental will provide high-quality denture and dental care and offer a wide range of affordable payment plan options.
The Omaha office will offer patients a variety of denture and dental services, ranging from preventive care to general dentistry to restoration. In addition to giving 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.
"For more than 10 years, Aspen Dental offices around the country have made comprehensive, affordable dental care accessible to patients who need it," said Dr. Peter Straub, lead dentist. "I'm excited to join the Aspen Dental team to manage the first practice here in Nebraska. We invite patients who live and work in Omaha and the surrounding communities, even those who have been putting off a dental visit for years, to visit Aspen Dental and see how we can help them find their smiles."
Dr. Straub received his DDS from Creighton University School of Dentistry and has nearly 20 years of clinical experience.
The office also 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.
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 Omaha 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 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 Omaha 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.
