National Dental Service Organization Executive Recognized for Leadership

December 11, 2017

(Dec. 11, 2017) – Kristy Loomis, vice president of human resources for Great Expressions Dental Centers, was recently honored with the bronze award for Human Resources Professional of the Year by the Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

At GEDC, a leading national dental service organization, Loomis supports employees in 10 states—providing resources critical to employee retention and professional growth.

“Kristy has effectively organized GEDC’s internal efforts to improve the overall process in recruitment, affiliate additional offices, and successfully onboard doctors and other professional team members,” said Greg Nodland, president of GEDC. “As we continue to grow and expand into new markets, Kristy will play a vital role in ensuring our offices are staffed with professionals committed to providing the high-quality services our patients expect.”

During her time with Great Expressions, Loomis has successfully unified 16 company affiliations, launched GEDC University to ensure new team members are properly and successfully onboarded, redesigned and negotiated employment contracts for doctors across the Company’s footprint, and generated $1.1 million through opportunity cost of revenue. In addition, she redesigned the employee benefits program, finding 25 percent annual savings for the company, resulting in lower premiums for employees without sacrificing the level of quality benefits offered.

“Kristy’s leadership style focuses on setting goals that align with Great Expressions’ vision and direction while leveraging the unique strengths of each member of her team,” said Nodland. “She leads by example and her passion for our business and what she does is contagious. She drives others to keep up with her pace and energy and ensures we all see what we can accomplish.”
