A new pet store and dental clinic have set up shop on the busy corner of Burden Boulevard and Road 68 in Pasco.
Aspen Dental recently opened in Suite 102.
The 3,000-square-foot dental office is led by Dr. Adel Mrihil, who will provide services ranging from dentures and denture repairs to preventive care, general dentistry and restoration.
The new clinic will offer several patient-friendly programs and services, including personalized treatment, an on-site denture lab and a denture money-back guarantee.
The Pasco clinic is one of eight Aspen Dental practices in Washington, a state where 38 of the 39 counties, including Franklin County, are designated as dental health professional shortage areas by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Each new Aspen Dental practice supports local community growth by contributing more than $1.3 million to the economy through job creation and capital investment, according to a study conducted by Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management.
Aspen Dental has nearly 650 offices in 36 states.

The new 11,000-square-foot Petco retail store in Suite 101 is still under construction.
The building, valued at $971,960, will offer pet services and supplies and add to the 50-year-old company’s 1,470 locations across the United States, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
Yost Gallagher Construction in Spokane is the contractor. Petco has stores in Richland and Kennewick.
The land is owned by the Department of Natural Resources and leased by Dave Black Properties. The overall cost of the project is $1.3 million.
