SYRACUSE, New York--Aspen Dental practices across the U.S. have received accreditation from the Better Business Bureau, and maintain an A+ rating with the BBB's Reliability Report, the Aspen Dental network of dentists have announced.

National BBB accreditation means that doctors at each of Aspen Dental's 235 practices in 20 states are committed to meeting certain standards, including making a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints.

BBB-accredited businesses pay a fee for accreditation monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public. An A+ is the highest possible rating on the BBB's Reliability Report, and represents BBB's degree of confidence the business is operating in a trustworthy manner and will make an effort to resolve any customer concerns filled with BBB.

"Achieving national BBB accreditation and an A+ rating is a credit to the talented Aspen Dental dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, lab technicians, and office staff who are committed to ensuring that their patients receive excellent care," said Robert Fontana, president and CEO of Aspen Dental Management.

One of the largest and fastest-growing networks of denture and dental care providers in the U.S., Aspen Dental practices made significant investments in patient satisfaction during 2009, building a team of support specialists and putting into place new protocols and procedures to help resolve issues quickly and effectively.

"As the provider of comprehensive business support services for Aspen Dental practices, ADMI worked hand-in-hand with those practices to develop a world-class patient satisfaction services, including the establishment of a dedicated patient satisfaction team. We will continue to look for logistical and operational efficiencies that will allow Aspen Dental doctors and their staff to spend more time providing high quality care to patients," added Fontana.
