Community Outreach

Giving Back to Those in Need

part of living is giving back.

At Great Expressions, we strive to invest in the communities we serve. Great Expressions partners with local, national, and international organizations, volunteering our time and expertise to help people in need. Everyone could use a little extra help now and then, and GEDC works with communities to provide information and resources that make a difference.

Recently, Great Expressions donated over $400,000 to charitable events in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. organizations and institutions, which received donations that included The King Center, Morehouse College, Meharry School of Dentistry, The Children’s Center, Winning Futures, Ronald McDonald House, Uplift Our Youth, and Make-A-Wish, among others.

Dental Deputies:

our commitment to strengthening communities

Each year in Texas, domestic violence results in an estimated 1,200 deaths and two million injuries among women. To assist the local shelter network with essential toiletry needs, including dental care products, Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC) has launched the third annual Dental Deputies program.

GEDC is teaming up with neighborhood preschools and day care centers to gather dental hygiene items to donate to victims in metro-Dallas and Austin shelters during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The participating schools below will be collecting items throughout the month of October, and will also receive free dental care education from their local GEDC dentist.
