Patient Communication Policy

It is important to note that email and text communication is not always secure. Email and text messages can be intercepted and for this reason, Great Expressions does not communicate personal health information through this method. Great Expressions will never ask for account information, credit card numbers, or personal information via email or text message. If you think you may have received a suspicious email or text from Great Expressions, please contact our corporate office immediately at 888-SMILE-80 (888-764-5380).

Email Appointment Confirmations

By enrolling in email appointment confirmations, you may receive non-appointment related emails throughout the course of your subscription with Great Expressions Dental Centers. Emails may include special offers for your specific location or alerts notifying you about important office news and events.

At this time, if you subscribe to receive email appointment confirmations, you automatically are subscribed to receive any marketing-related email. We promise that we will not spam your account with unnecessary emails, nor will we sell your information to a third party.
