We teamed up with Danica Patrick and Oral Health America to provide much- needed dental care and education to those that need it most.
Healthy Mouth Movement Throughout the year, team members from Aspen Dental practices across the country are participating in a day of treating those in need, free of charge. And with more than 450 practices in 30 states, imagine how many people we can help. We’re even rolling out the MouthMobile, a fully equipped dental office on wheels that goes where care isn’t available.
