Aspen Dental And Stewart-Haas Racing Celebrate Smiles During NASCAR Sprint Cup Quicken Loans 400 At Michigan International Speedway

SYRACUSE, N.Y., June 13, 2013   /PRNewswire/ -- When an infection in his mouth began impacting his quality of life, Rob Martin finally decided that enough was enough and turned to a friend for a referral to a dentist. Just a few visits later, Rob was spreading the word about the transformation he experienced, thanks to Dr. Shikha Sood and her team at Aspen Dental in Kennewick.

"This dentist saved my life! I didn't know how bad my upper teeth were infected," Martin shared in a post he wrote on the Aspen Dental Facebook wall. "When I saw my new teeth, I cried! I have a beautiful smile now, and am very confident."

On Sunday, June 16, Aspen Dental and Stewart-Haas Racing will celebrate Rob's journey towards good oral health by showcasing his smile on Ryan Newman's No. 39 Quicken Loans Chevrolet during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

"Rob is as good of a patient as it gets, and has truly been a great ambassador for us," said Dr. Sood. "His appreciation and enthusiasm is incredible. We're so happy to have been able to give him his smile back."

A resident of Richland, Wash., Dr. Sood graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry (DDS, 2008) and has been practicing for five years in the U.S. (13 years in all).

Aspen Dental began featuring patients' photos on Newman's No. 39 Chevrolet during the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, and will continue the tradition throughout the 2013 season.

Aspen Dental was the primary sponsor of the No. 39 Chevrolet for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway on May 18, 2013 and will also boast the primary sponsorship of Newman's car during the AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sept. 1. For all other races during the 2013 season, Aspen Dental is an associate sponsor with placement on the lower-rear quarter panels of the No. 39 Chevrolet and prominent positioning on Newman's uniform. In addition to Newman, Aspen Dental is also featured on the uniform of Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing.
