June 6, 2018

(June 06, 2018) –  Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC), a leading dental support organization, today announced it is teaming up with Middletown Dental Group in Middletown, N.Y. Increasing its office footprint in New York to 21 locations, GEDC serves various markets across the state, spanning from Liberty and Monticello upstate to Bay Shore and Hempstead on Long Island.

Middletown Dental Group, located at 9 Bert Crawford Road, Suite 101, provides a wide variety of oral health care services, including hygiene, oral surgery and periodontics. With the partnership, Middletown Dental Group will expand into orthodontics while also providing patients access to GEDC’s Smile Protection Dental Plan, a dental insurance alternative for patients without insurance looking to live a healthy lifestyle.

“Great Expressions continues to seek opportunities to support high-quality dental providers committed to offering exceptional service, such as Middletown Dental Group,” said Dan Hirschfeld, CEO of GEDC. “Our continued growth and investment in New York is a direct reflection of the quality dental centers in the area and the overwhelmingly positive patient feedback we have gathered from Great Expressions locations across the state.”

Middletown Dental Group is led by Dr. Craig Shapiro, DMD, who received his bachelor of science from the University of Hartford before earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. Additionally, Dr. Shapiro received a certification in Invisalign from Aligntech Institute and specializes in providing metal-free braces for adults.

“My primary objective is to provide patients with the finest dental care from the moment they walk into the office,” said Dr. Shapiro. “Teaming up with Great Expressions ensures that we will be able to meet that objective by further strengthening the level of dental services our patients have come to expect.”
