    I worked here back when it was Nanston. Good people, good times.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Norcross, GA

    ProsVery nice people to work with, fun but professional. Nice pay structure with regular raises. And of course the great dental benefits.

    ConsThere weren't really any cons. I guess i did get laid off shortly after our companies merged however, Overall I appreciated the opportunity I got to work there.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Human Resource (Former Employee) Bloomfield Township, MI

    ProsGreat company to work for and learn from. Room for advancement, good employee benefits, growing company.

    ConsCommunication difficulty with a few members of management but still a good place to work. Communication breakdown from upper executives to mid management then onto regular staff.

    Prosthe coworkers are great cant complain!loved the job loved assistanting the docter and hygienst and wven learning a few things up in the front!

    Conscompany doesnt want to pay over time but yet wants production. will let you go without notice!for two weeks i kept being told no hours and turned out they had let me go!management horrible!they only care about themselves not anyone in the actual offices doing the work!

    RUN FAR, FAR AWAY From This Company!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsWorking with patients. Good Benefits, Flexible Hours.

    ConsPoor Work Ethics, Hygenists and Assistants are work horses and NEVER shown any appreciation, no Communication, no team building, no training,packed worked schedules with patients and forced to work through lunch hour, no organization, front office staff is never trained properly and yelled at if asking too many questions, selling unwanted treatment plans to patients, absolutely NO direction whatsoever!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet it together!

    The Patient factory. Company only cares about how you are pushing services onto others.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking with patients, No weekends, Good benefits

    ConsNo organization. If you're not selling services you are a failure. Front Office staff and clinical staff are just thrown into their positions without adequate training. No one takes responsibility over job duties. Certain doctors talk to you in a very condescending way. The front office staff is forced to answer the phones on their lunch break.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer proper training centers for your staff. Someone needs to manage the clinical team and have someone manage the office staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Too focused on making money, and not on patient care

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunity to earn based on production. No need to worry about patient scheduling, etc. Paid CE courses.

    ConsPressure to produce. Not totally autonomous in treatment planning. Office managers push you to do more expensive treatments. Front desk and providers have poor communication. Poor patient retention.
    Very different experiences, office to office.
    Very strict about taking vacation/holiday time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so transparent about trying to make money. Treat the patients better, and maybe the patient retention rate will rise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employee development is essential.

    Desktop Support Specialist (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsOne of the best reasons to work at Great Expressions Dental Centers is the dental benefits.

    ConsOne of the downsides of working at Great Expressions is the poor communications throughout the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was the worst company I have ever worked for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI can't think of one single pro!

    ConsThe employees are treated very poorly and it is all about production at the expense of the customers and employees. The doctor at my specific loacation was exceptionaly rude and treated people poorly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDeal with the real problem when you have good people quitting your company. It isn't justified to keep your doctor simply because of production at the expense of the good people you have working for you. It doesn't do your customers justice either.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
