Aspen Dental Expands Into Miami Market With Two New Offices

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Aspen Dental today announced its expansion into the Miami market, opening two new offices in the surrounding metropolitan area. Aspen Dental has a significant footprint across the state with more than 100 offices and its entry into the Miami market points to the company’s strong presence and continued growth across the region.

The offices are located in North Miami and River Landing, and are independently and privately owned by renowned dentists local to the area. With a focus on breaking down barriers, they will provide a full range of dental services, create new jobs in the Miami area, and improve access to quality oral healthcare.

The North Miami office is led by Dr. Laura Ortega, DMD, a graduate of the Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine and Lead Dentist at the Aspen Dental Lake Worth location. Dr. Ortega’s practice, located at 880 North Miami Beach Boulevard, will be open Mondays from 9am to 7pm, Tuesdays through Wednesdays from 8am to 6pm, Thursdays from 9am to 7pm, and Fridays from 8am to 2pm.

“I’m thrilled to open our doors at the North Miami location and build on community ties to bring greater education, awareness and access to groups who have historically been underserved,” said Dr. Ortega. “One of the greatest obstacles to care in our community is the language barrier and we’ve prioritized having Spanish-speakers on staff – myself included – and engaging with translators to make patients feel comfortable and heard.”

The River Landing office will be led by Dr. Samarah Al-Jamali, DMD, also a graduate of the Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Al-Jamali speaks fluent Spanish and began their dentistry journey in Fort Myers. Dr. Al-Jamali’s practice, located at 1420 NW North River Drive, will be open Mondays through Wednesdays from 7:30am to 5:30pm, Thursdays from 10am to 8pm, and Fridays from 8am to 1pm.

“My vision for the River Landing office is that it’s a place where patients feel known,” said Dr. Al-Jamali. “I’ve talked to so many people in the community who say they need to go to the dentist, but don’t know where to start. We want to change that and give people a place where they know they can come and receive affordable, quality, customized care.”

Aspen Dental offices offer patient-friendly programs and services that make it easier for patients to get the dental care they need, including:

  • Personalized treatment and friendly service. Each patient receives a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan designed by the dentist, with long-term oral and overall health in mind.
  • Safe and clean care environments.We’ve always been committed to the highest safety standards, and in a world where things are changing fast, we have implemented heightened cleaning, hygiene and safety standards, symptom screening for appointments, social distancing at our offices, and now offer virtual visits for our patients.
