Aspen Dental Opens 900th Practice in U.S.
Expands Access To State-of-the-Art Dental Care Across Pennsylvania

MOUNT POCONO—Aspen Dental has officially opened its 900th office in the country with the opening of its Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania practice location. This milestone Aspen Dental practice is the 46th in the state of Pennsylvania, as Aspen Dental continues to break down barriers and bring comprehensive, affordable care to patients across the country.

The new office is located at 3257 Route 940, and is led by both Dr. Shekhar Gupta and Dr. Neelam Attri. Dr. Gupta received his DDS degree from the New York University College of Dentistry. Dr. Gupta has been with Aspen Dental since 2005 and has practicing dentistry for more than 25 years. He was previously a fellow for the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He currently resides in the Scranton area and leads 26 Aspen Dental practices on the East Coast, 12 of which are in the state of Pennsylvania. 

“From the moment you walk through our doors, our staff is ready to meet your needs in a way that is convenient, accessible, efficient and compassionate,” said Dr. Shekhar Gupta, co-owner of the Mount Pocono Aspen Dental practice. “Oral health plays a critical role in overall health and going back to the dentist is safer and easier than ever now. We look forward to having patients come in for appointments at this new location and increasing access to care for patients to be able to prioritize their health and get the care they need.” 

Dr. Neelam Attri is co-leading this location with Dr. Gupta after working together at the Stroudsburg, PA office for the past 12 years. She received her DDS degree from New York University College of Dentistry in 2009 and has been practicing dentistry for over 12 years. She is board trained and specializes in dental implants and Invisalign. 

“We are thrilled to be opening our doors in the Mount Pocono community and I’m proud to share this expansion of our impact in the community to ensure more individuals are able to have access to state-of-the-art care in a brand new facility,” said Dr. Neelam Attri, co-owner of the Mount Pocono Aspen Dental practice. “We are looking forward to being able to service more patients through this office, in addition to our other locations, and increase the access to care for patients in Eastern Pennsylvania.” 

Dr. Gupta, Dr. Attri and their team will provide a full range of dental services, create new jobs in the Mount Pocono community, and improve access to quality oral healthcare, all at one convenient location. Independently-owned and operated, Aspen Dental offices offer patient-friendly programs and services that make it easier for patients to get the dental care they need, including:
