The new dental office in Florida is among about 800 nationwide.

Aspen Dental has expanded to the Saint Johns community with a new office at 200 Bartram Market Drive.

Yasodhara Vadlamundi leads the new practice that is open for extended hours on weekdays and on select Saturdays. Walk-in and emergency patients also are welcomed.

Aspen offers a free new patient exam and X-rays for those without insurance, an on-site denture lab, financing options and other services in a county that has been designated as a dental health professional shortage area by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
