Great Expressions Donates $25,000 to University of Detroit Mercy

March 5, 2012

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. – March 5, 2012 – The staff of the Great Expressions Dental Centers headquarters in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. announced its annual contribution of $25,000 to the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) School of Dentistry at a presentation at the school’s Outer Drive Campus.

Through Great Expressions donation, the UDM School of Dentistry will be able to help provide scholarship assistance for students, support programs that encourage students to participate actively in leadership and service, and assist in continuing its campus improvement that will ultimately enhance the student experience.

This annual contribution to the UDM School of Dentistry is part of Great Expressions’ continuous efforts to give back in the communities where its offices are located. Since 2006, Great Expressions has donated $150,000 to the program.

“From sound mentors to the availability of the latest technology, we need to offer our future dentists every possible advantage during their training so they can provide patients with the quality dental care they deserve,” said Great Expressions National Clinical and Regional Director Dr. Jack Falvo, an alum of the UDM School of Dentistry. “Our partnership with the UDM School of Dentistry enables Great Expressions to fulfill a fundamental role in cultivating the experience and enthusiasm of those starting out in our field.”

“Our relationship with Great Expressions enables our students to begin building connections in the dental community and learn what to expect before they enter the real world as officially licensed dentists,” said UDM School of Dentistry Executive Director of Development Richard F. Kelley. “We are very appreciative of the tremendous support of our students that Great Expressions has provided over the years.”
