A development taking place along Taumarson Road will bring a spot for teeth cleanings, crowns and root canals next to the already operating credit union.

A new local operation for Aspen Dental is under construction at 2356 Taumarson Road, next to Hapo Credit Union.

The project of Red Mountain Retail Group and constructed by Opp & Seibold General Construction is a 3,500-square-foot development valued at about $883,000, according to the College Place Planning Department.

Aspen Dental is a large dental corporation that operates more than 500 offices throughout the country, according to the company’s website.

The nearest one to Walla Walla is in Kennewick.

Aspen Dental says its practices will service nearly 4 million patient appointments, including more than 900,000 new patients.

The outfit is on a trajectory to open more than 60 new branded practices every year, targeting quality affordable dental care to groups in need of access.
