    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time (More than a year)


    -So many opportunities for growth
    -The company is very focused on patient care
    -Upper management truly supports their employees everyday and are very passionate about what they do
    -Great AOMs
    -New CEO is bringing positive changes
    -I feel that the clinical team is treated well. There are many opportunities for assistants or hygienists to pick up more hours at other offices, learn more, have mentors if they are fresh out of school, or even be given the opportunity to learn the position if they have 0 experience. This is not usually offered at a private dental office. Given a large company with a great training environment, the growth is truly there


    Can be a fast paced environment but if you enjoy challenges this isn’t really a con. All I ask is that some people at PSC could be a bit more helpful and respectful to the offices who work very hard everyday. :-)

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your employees, and they will continue taking care of the patients. There’s a ton of research out there that show that engaged employees who are treated with civility work harder, smarter and more creatively. As a new PA I’ve been invited to multiple meetings asked how GEDC can improve. I appreciate that so much!

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Great Expressions Dental Centers (Southfield, MI) in April 2017.


    Pretty straight forward interview process. The PSC in the Onyx Building is very clean and bright. Seems as the people that work there thoroughly enjoy their jobs. Everyone was very friendly. The position I interview for seemed like something I would enjoy doing and the interview was giving me the job description, inquiring about my skills, and open floor for any questions. I walked out of the interview feeling positive as if I had a good chance of being offered the job.
