Two Elite DSOs Celebrate Four Major Milestones

Western Dental & Orthodontics just celebrated the opening of its 200th office in California, and Aspen Dental recently celebrated its 700th Aspen Dental branded office, as well as its 20th anniversary and the 15th location for a practice owner.

Aspen Dental, the largest branded network of dental offices in the U.S., caring for more than 1.7 million patients in 2017, just celebrated a major milestone with the opening of the 700th Aspen Dental branded office in Nokomis, Florida. This practice opening was also the 15th location for practice owner Dr. Dustin Dixon. This opening brings the total number of locations for the DSO in Florida to 80, once again expanding access to care in the Sunshine State.

The milestone is even more poignant because it comes as Aspen Dental celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Western Dental (with its affiliates, including Brident Dental & Orthodontics) is one of the nation’s largest dental providers and is the leader in accessible, affordable oral healthcare, serving approximately 2.4 million patient visits annually in 249 affiliated offices throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, and Texas.

Western’s newest office, and 200th California office, is in Vista, California. This new office adds to Western Dental’s presence in northern San Diego County, where it also has offices in San Marcos, Oceanside, Escondido and Ranch Sante Fe.

In addition to accepting uninsured and privately insured patients, Western Dental welcomes patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal), in all of its 200 California offices. In California, Western Dental is the leading provider of services to both adults and children in the Medi-Cal Dental program – part of the public insurance program that provides health care benefits for more than 13 million low-income individuals and families. Western Dental dentists provided care to more than a half-million Denti-Cal beneficiaries in 2017 and is committed to continuing to partner with the State to help improve the program.

“We have grown to 200 offices in the state and 249 offices overall by making it our mission to provide a full spectrum of convenient access to high quality, affordable dental care to patients of all ages,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer for Western Dental. “The new Western Dental office in Vista builds upon our solid base in California and expands our presence in the San Diego County region.”

An open house and ribbon cutting celebration is planned for Thursday, Nov. 15.
