    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Met some nice patients and coworkers

    Cons

    High turnover rate for employees especially dentists. I worked at one in Macomb county and they kept going through dentist after dentist. Usually each dentist would stay only for a year and move on. Patients were confused and would ask where did that dentist go. It's hard to build patient relationships that way. Also equipment was old and chairs falling apart. They wouldn't do anything about it. I would get maybe a 10 to 15 minute break for a ten plus your day. Terrible!

    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some truly GREAT office managers at this company. The specialists are incredible.

    Cons

    They push treatment. The most expensive everything. The Dentists and Hygienists who don't, and don't produce (sell, sell, sell), don't last long. And they make it hell before go. Upper management, in Ga, screams and yells at Dr.'s. We're ALL adults, behave like one and I'll respect you. This company truly needs help! It may be better in other states. Make this your last resort.

    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. Very unprofessional treatment of employees and patients.

    Cons

    I was supposed to be a full-time dentist, receiving compensation at a very low percentage of production basis. The "credentialing" period was supposed to take about six weeks, but ended up taking over three months, during which time I had to do hours of work filling out forms and was not compensated. They broke the contract in numerous ways and once I did start working, required me to be present full time, but were totally unable to provide a reasonable, full-time schedule. So I often wasn't paid for my time. The clinical partner was horrible and called me late at night, claiming things that were completely false in a tirade so bad I had to hang up. The next day I found out I was "terminated"....I felt very glad to be out of that nightmare, although I'd only worked two weeks after waiting over three months!! And most of the patients were on Medicaid.

    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice. Patients are awesome to get to know.

    Cons

    This is a horrible company. I should have listened to the other reviews and RAN. -THIS IS A SALES JOB. Every office is required to meet monthly sales targets. Must call a list patients EVERYDAY and try to sell them dental work (Told by regional manager and Area director to not take NO for an answer) - Benefits are terrible, No vacation time, No 401K match. 10 to 25 cent annual raises for office staff -MANDATORY after work meetings for managers, upwards of 45 minutes commute away from office -40 hours is not guaranteed, You will be sent home if office is moderate or slow. -May even be asked or required to work at another location periodically. -Required to find your own coverage if you are out on vacation. -Required to make up holiday closings by working a Saturday before or after holiday. -No corporate cleaning vendor, office staff required to clean offices -Non-clinical staff required to purchase their own uniforms -Dentists and Hygienists have sales targets that if not met, will require them to have to pay the company money back

    "Patient Coordinator"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time

    Pros

    Most employees were a pleasure to meet and were very good to me flexible if you have to leave early ( as long as it doesn't get out of hand) Dentist and assistants were very generous

    Cons

    Hours were not that great LONG work days besides Friday Office Manager was terrible - No action ever taken If we did not meet our quota for the month, that equaled a bad few days at work lets just say Though they were flexible with needing time off/leaving early for appointments and such...(to a point of course) it was always used against employees later Hygienests expected way to much from admin employees ( way above our pay grade - ( tasks they would try to push on us) if overtime was close - hours were purposely cut

    Pros

    Being that there's so much drama you'll be entertained everyday. By the assaulting dentist and the complaining staff about the patients

    Cons

    Everything nothing went well at this place its not a friendly environment nor is it a place you'll want to work for the rest of your life
