FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS — Amel Hassan, DDS has announced the grand opening of the newest affiliated Affordable Dentures & Implants practice, scheduled for Thursday, June 22, at 525 Lincoln Highway, Plaza St. Clair, Suite 7.
The opening marks Illinois’ fourth practice in the Affordable Dentures & Implants affiliated network.
The Fairview Heights practice aims to increase local patient access to critically-needed tooth replacement services by offering free consultations and x-rays for new patients.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognizes St. Clair County as one of several Illinois counties considered “dental health professional shortage areas.” According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and more than 35 million Americans are missing all their teeth on one or both arches.
Hassan earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at NYU College of Dentistry, and will own and operate the Fairview Heights practice. Her practice will deliver tooth replacement care – including dentures, extractions and dental implants.
The practice features its own on-site dental labs. The practice opens at 8 a.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, or to make an appointment, call 1-800-DENTURE (1-800-336-8873).
