An office affiliated with a large dental network is being built in north Roswell, according to city sources.

Construction on what will be New Mexico’s first Aspen Dental office has begun at the intersection of North Main Street and Blue Mountain Road just about a block south of Wal-Mart.

According to Aspen Dental’s website, the nearest branded offices at this time are in Arizona or Texas.

Aspen Dental, based in Williston, Vermont, has 650 affiliated offices nationwide in 36 states and serves 1.5 million patients, according to its website. Local offices are operated by dentists licensed in that state, but the Aspen Dental corporation provides administrative and managerial functions. A news release issued by the company when an office opened in another state indicates that an Aspen Dental operationg contributes about $3 million a year to a local community.

The property at 3900 N. Main St., which is next to a McDonald’s restaurant, is owned by Roswell Aspen LLC of Santa Ana, California, in care of Red Mountain Retail Group, according to Chaves County online property records. The square footage of the parcel is a bit over 43,560.

The organizer of Roswell Aspen LLC is Michael H. Mugel, New Mexico Secretary of State records indicate, and he is also the founder and chief executive officer of Red Mountain Retail Group, also known as Red Mountain Group, which is a real estate management and development firm.

A sign on the property indicates that Knoebel Construction Inc., which has its primary office in St. Louis, Missouri, is performing work on the current project. That company’s website indicates that it previously has built six office locations for Aspen Dental.
