    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers were the best!

    Cons

    Inappropriate relationships between the Doctors that disrupts the daily flow of business. So unprofessional and they were never held accountable for their reckless actions.

    Advice to Management

    Get those Doctors out of the Snellville location they are ruining the business.

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

    Pros

    Endless opportunities whether it be for learning or for advancement, vast array of resources readily available, it's never boring (there is always something to do), wellness training available free of cost, low cost yoga sessions on a biweekly basis, the summer BBQ and Christmas raffle are a bonus. The overall environment is nice; comfortable chairs, cozy cubicles. On site café for lunches and relaxation. Technology is consistently advancing both in office and at PSC.

    Cons

    The ball is often dropped in terms of communication, especially interdepartmental communication. The insurance is very costly and the deductibles are unreasonably high.

    Advice to Management

    Go the extra mile to make sure your employees always feel appreciated, even if it's something as simple as saying "thank you". Look into lowering the cost of healthcare for your employees. Bring back the birthday bagels :)

    Pros

    They do highly care about patient treatment and satisfaction. Not all doctors are not fresh out of school which is a big plus for the offices, unlike other corporate dentistry offices. I work in a great one so I have a lot of pros I could name, but they're specific to my office dynamic that may not be the same for all. If you don't miss any work in a quarter they'll paid you an extra 8 hours bonus quarterly.

    Cons

    Healthcare is too expensive. They need lower costs especially since they have over 200 offices nation wide. They actually give you a "dental insurance plan " for free. You can add dependents, but you'll have a maximum and percentage covered like a standard PPO insurance. Technically dental work for employees should be free. If any lab fees occur, then it'll be the employee's responsibility. You earn your "pto/vacation" hours but you don't accumulate sick days. They don't recognize being paid while sick. Their system sucks, they need to change all of that. They don't ask for employees opinions or suggestions regarding their satisfaction of the company, management, or benefits.They need a better incentive program. Uniforms suck. You have to purchase the shirts and cardigans throw their embroidery companies which are expensive, can only wear only 3 colors.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for employees input.

    Pros

    The opportunity to partner with large network of dental healthcare professionals to make a positive difference.
    Competitive benefits.
    Continuing ED opportunities.
    The VP of operations for the North region is an amazing business leader who has always had an open door policy with me. Along with the North dental hygiene director who constantly advocates quality customer care I have been thankful for their leadership .
    Our jobs/professions are no better than the very best we give them.

    Cons

    There are aways areas in professional communities to improve. I feel GEDC does strive to find those areas to improve on.
    Yes, seems to have a large turn over BUT, is it necessarily the company or could it be the individual employees? ( That's one to give some thought to anyway)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be connected to those of us on the front line.
