How Affordable Dentures & Implants Started
The first Affordable Dentures dental practice opened in 1975 in Kinston, North Carolina when founding dentists, Dr. George Edwards, Jr., and Dr. Donald Henson, saw a growing need in their community for dentures and tooth extractions at affordable fees.
Our founders also discovered how important it was to provide immediate dentures with same-day service, especially for patients who had traveled great distances, or for those who were taking time off work to get treatment. Same-day service made the practices very unique. To this day, every affiliated practice has its own on-site denture lab to offer efficient, convenient dental care for its patients.
Continuing to Grow
With more than 220 affiliated practices in 39 states, affiliated practice owners benefit from the clinical and technical experiences they are able to share as a network of dental caregivers. More than six million patients have received services from the affiliated practices providing Affordable Dentures & Implants.
