SYRACUSE, N.Y.—Walgreens and Aspen Dental have announced a collaboration that will bring Aspen Dental-branded dental offices to two Florida Walgreens.
Walgreens notes that the collaboration, which marks the first time that in-store dental services will be available to its customers, reflects the company's commitment to transform its stores into neighborhood health destinations that provide a differentiated, consumer-focused experience, while providing access to a broad range of affordable health care services at a trusted and convenient setting.
“Health care continues to evolve as patients demand more choice, greater value, and better access,” said Bob Fontana, chairman and chief executive officer of Aspen Dental Management. “We’re incredibly excited about this collaboration, which brings together Walgreens, a leader in understanding the intersection of retail and health care, and Aspen Dental, a brand that has made dental care affordable and accessible to millions of patients for more than 20 years.”
A floss cutting event was held at the Palatka, Florida location on Thursday, December 13. The second location is slated to open in the Tampa area in the second quarter of 2019.
“At Aspen Dental, we’re focused on breaking down barriers so that patients can get the care they need, today,” said Dr. Kevon Rennie, Aspen Dental practice owner. “Like Walgreens, we’re committed to creating healthier communities, and my team and I look forward to working together to make dentistry more accessible and affordable here in Palatka.”
Aspen Dental at Walgreens is dedicated to making it easier for patients by offering a full range of dental services, denture, implant and Invisalign clear aligners. New patients will receive a digital dental health scan to give them a clear understanding into what’s happening inside their mouth, a service that helps patients make informed decisions about their treatment.
In addition to comprehensive dental care, the new Aspen Dental office will bring:
- Free new patient exams and X-rays for those without insurance.
- An on-site denture lab to facilitate quick turnaround of custom-crafted dentures, repairs, relines or adjustments (on all dentures – not just those purchased at Aspen Dental), as well as a denture money back guarantee.
- A variety of financing options.
