Great Expressions Opens New Fort Caroline Office Specializing in Pedodontics

May 18, 2012

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – May 18, 2012 – Great Expressions Dental Centers has opened a new, state-of-the-art facility in Fort Caroline specializing in pediatric dentistry. The office is located at 3714 Heath Rd., Jacksonville, adjacent to the existing general dentistry Fort Caroline office.

The new Fort Caroline office is completely dedicated to children. The Great Expressions pediatric dentists are highly specialized and trained. All members of the staff understand each child is unique and take care to address each child’s fears and questions.

“It is important for children to have a positive experience and attitude about going to the dentist, as well as developing good oral health early on,” said Dr. Robert Brody, Great Expressions Florida clinical and regional director. “Our office space, staff and treatments are tailored just for kids. Not only do children require a different set of clinical procedures than adults, but their emotional needs must be considered, too.”

To make children feel more at home, Great Expressions offers different types of toys to play with during their visit and there is always a movie showing in the reception area. The office has a circus theme with a variety of bright, colorful decorations throughout the facility. A large whiteboard cleverly portrayed as under the big top welcomes each patient for the day by name.

Treatments at the Fort Caroline Pedodontics Office are specialized for children interaction from infancy through the age of 13, including kids less than two years of age and those with special needs.

“At Great Expressions we pride ourselves in keeping patients for life,” added Dr. Brody. — That means providing the community with a wide range of dental services as we grow and expand. The new branch is adjacent to the current Fort Caroline office, offering busy parents the convenience of having complete oral health care in one location.”

Flexible scheduling, including Saturdays, is available. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Mon., Tues., Thurs. and Friday and 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Wednesdays. Saturday appointments can be scheduled upon request. Online appointment requests can be submitted at

Great Expressions makes distinctive patient care a priority – this is one of 15 specialized offices. These locations across the country are dedicated solely to periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics, biopsy and oral surgery. While Great Expressions primarily focuses on having multiple specialties under one roof, this is its first stand-alone pedodontics office.

The new Fort Caroline office is one of three recent improvements made by Great Expressions Dental Centers. The Southfield, Mich. and North Palm Beach, Fla. offices have relocated to improve service and update facilities.
