BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. – June 30, 2015 – Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC), a leading dental service organization, recently honored their top-performing dentists at their fifth annual “Top Gun” awards. More than 300 GEDC doctors, clinical partners, special guests and vendors came together to honor doctors for their superior performance, providing care and leadership over the past year. The award ceremony was held in Las Vegas at Aria Casino & Resort and a private Glitter and Glow party at Aria’s Liquid Lounge on May 22 and 23.

The “Top Gun” ceremony honors top-performing doctors based on patient care, dedication to mentorship programs and philanthropic efforts. GEDC honored all doctors who attended including special recognition for Dr. Amirta Marajh (Tampa, Florida) who received the Best Aesthetic Case; Dr. Jacob John (Middletown, New York) who received Best Multi Discipline Restorative Case; and Dr. Shervin Ardalani (Riverview and Brandon, Florida) who received Best Orthodontic Case.

Dr. Zenon Kossak (Livonia, Michigan) received the Humanitarian Award for providing a full mouth rehab on a cancer patient. Prior to the rebab, the patient had issues with their mouth, including trouble eating.

We’re honored to be able to work with them and honor their hard work.
