Innovation and the Importance of being at the Forefront of Industry Trends

December 11, 2018


(Dec. 11, 2018) –  For over 40 years, Great Expressions Dental Centers has provided affordable, high-quality dental care to patients across the nation. With a commitment to the patients it serves and its team members, Great Expressions continues to foster a culture of innovation, thoughtfulness and inclusion. Recently, Dr. Basam Shamo shared his thoughts regarding the organization’s commitment to growth and development with Journal of the Michigan Dental Association (MDA).

“Being an MDA member is very important to me,” Dr. Shamo said. “For me, membership in the organization is about being able to give back to our profession and our community, as well as supporting our colleagues and, most importantly, advocating for all of our patients.”

Dr. Shamo was recently featured by MDA to demonstrate how membership positively impacts professionals in various stages of their careers. Great Expressions team members are encouraged to join professional organizations related to their specific fields as it provides continual learning, development and networking opportunities that benefit the professional, the organization and its patients.

“Staying involved with the MDA’s local district has helped me grow personally and clinically,” said Dr. Shamo. “My first priority will always be to my patients, and in order to ensure I continue to provide the high-quality service they deserve, it’s essential I remain on top of today’s trends and seek ways to innovate my practice. Membership in the MDA assists in meeting that objective.”

Dr. Shamo is based in Great Expressions’ Midtown Detroit location. He received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Detroit Mercy.
