TILTON — A new Aspen Dental office opened in Tilton on Thursday, January 30. Located at 17 Lowes Drive, the conveniently located practice will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.
Dr. Young Chan Park, lead dentist at the Tilton office, received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at Boston University School of Dental Medicine in 2003. Dr. Park looks forward to meeting the Tilton community and providing much needed access to high-quality dental care and education.
The Tilton practice, located in Belknap County, marks the 11th Aspen Dental-branded location in New Hampshire, a state where 4 out of 10 of the counties (including Belknap County) have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
According to a study conducted in 2013 by Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, each new Aspen Dental-branded office supports local community growth by contributing more than $1.3 million in positive economic impact through job creation and capital investment. The local community benefits through investment in office construction, furniture and fixtures; jobs created and wages and benefits paid; taxes; and investment in marketing and advertising.
In addition to offering patients the choice of seven styles of Aspen Dental's exclusive ComfiDents® brand full and partial dentures, Aspen Dental will provide comprehensive exams, hygiene services, treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work. The office features digital radiography and offers advanced screening for oral cancer.
