    Pros

    1. Advancement is possible.
    2. You form great bonds with coworkers.

    Cons

    1. Pay ranges are not across the board. They are subjective.
    2. They talk about patient care at the office level. They need to talk about patient care at the upper management level. Their decision making and actions support that production is the company's mission not providing great patient care such as those stupid upgrades not covered my insurances but we charge patients anyway.
    3. When they love you, they love you. When they don't, it's bad!!!
    4. They are not truthful nor transparent.

    Advice to Management

    1. Listen to your employees. The people who make you all lots of money. We want more paid time off and better wages.
    2. You need to hire better doctors.

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

    Pros

    -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

    Cons

    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!

    I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with at my office.

    Cons

    No communication with corporate office when needed.
    No help when needed.
    Poor training.

    Advice to Management

    I was a PA at the Toledo Byrne. The current Dr. made us aware in February she was pregnant and due in Nov. Higher ups were made aware and a job posting was made for a new Dr. it was thier job to find a new Dr. to replace her while the current Dr. was on maternity leave. The Dr. ended up having a beautiful baby girl 2 weeks early. My position was eliminated because GEDC dropped the ball and did not find me help when my office desperately needed it. I was told they were combining the Toledo offices and they were both going to be ran by a single PA. Since my office hasn't even been making 50% of my budget, which was out of my control, I was let go... Countless emails with no help, nothing. I was told my region could not afford to keep me as an employee and that there was no other offices that I could go to. I've never felt so let down in my life. I worked my way up to a PA in 1 year! I had never been written up once since I started. I was an excellent employee! Always on time! But gee thanks for the whole 2 weeks severance pay..... Do not waste your time with this company, I tried my hardest to work my way up to the top but apparently THE POWER OF ONE wasn't good enough....Good riddance.

    I have been working at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked with Great Expressions for 8 years. I worked my way from a hygiene assistant, to a dental assistant, PC, and now PA. Great Expressions encouraged and believed in me as a hard worker to move up in the company, and I have been able to utilize my skills both clinically and administartively. I couldn't imagine working with a greater group of people. They are like family. I feel blessed to be a part of the team.

    Cons

    the only cons I have are the health benefits.
