Great Expressions Dental Centers Aligns Industry Practice and Community Service in Annual MLK Day Initiative

National dental organization to donate more than $68,000 to charitable organizations across the nation

Southfield, Michigan (February 2, 2019) – Over the past decade, Great Expressions Dental Centers has donated more than half million dollars to organizations across the nation through its annual MLK Day of Service initiative. Allotting five percent of its patient-generated service revenue on January 21, the Great Expressions’ dental practices raised more than $68,000 for organizations this year, bringing the amount they’ve donated since this initiative began nearly 10 years ago to more than $600,000.

As one of the largest dental service organizations in the nation, Great Expressions’ commitment to its patients and communities extends beyond quality care. Year after year, the company continues to seek out ways to support the local communities it serves, partnering with charities and nonprofit organizations to provide resources, information, and training to encourage healthy lifestyles for all.

“I’m grateful to our patients that support this initiative each year and to our hardworking dental teams that provide outstanding service and support for our communities,” said Great Expressions CEO, Dan Hirschfeld. “We understand how busy life can get. This initiative allows us to make a difference and invest in the communities where we work and live. We believe everyone can make a difference, even while visiting the dentist.”

Donations have supported a number of nonprofit organizations over the years, including The King Center, Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, The Children’s Center, Make-a-Wish Foundation-Metro New York and Western New York, and many others across the country.
