Great Expressions Once Again Achieves Federal Certification for Custom Software

November 28, 2016

(Nov. 28, 2016) – In its commitment to continue to provide exceptional service to patients at more than 270 offices in 10 states, Great Expressions Dental Centers has once again achieved governmental certification for its custom dental practice management software. One of the first dental service organizations to obtain this certification, GEDC relies on the software to maintain its customer-focused operations, using the system for scheduling appointments, billing and more.

Established by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) – the Health IT Certification Program, the software certification is part of an initiative to ensure that health software programs conform to specific standards and criteria that have been adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

“Great Expressions Dental Centers is committed to providing patients with the highest quality of care by equipping our offices with the latest technologies,” said Richard Beckman, CEO of Great Expressions Dental Centers. “Earning this certification for the second year in a row reinforces our position as an innovator and leader in the dental industry.”

In order to receive the certification, GEDC passed all government requirements to store, display, transmit, receive and secure all patient health information with their dental practice management software.

“State-of-the-art software ensures that our clinical process is consistent across each of our offices nationwide,” said Beckman. “Great Expressions will continue to live up to the high standards we have set forth for patient care in order to continue to best serve our customers.”
