Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC) has named Dan Hirschfeld its chief executive officer. With more than 30 years of experience in healthcare services, he most recently served as president of Genesis Rehabilitation Services and International Operations and executive vice president and chief operating officer of Genesis Healthcare. During his tenure, Genesis Healthcare scaled from 400 to 1,700 locations.
“Day in and day out, Great Expressions delivers outstanding patient care, one smile at a time. I could not be prouder to join this dedicated, committed, and passionate team. Without all of them, our success would not be possible. I look forward to continuing its commitment to operational excellence and patient experience and bringing a GEDC smile to even more happy faces,” said Hirschfeld.
Founded in 1982 and operating as a single brand, GEDC provides comprehensive dental services through its network of more than 300 affiliated practices staffed by more than 900 dentists and hygienists who deliver care through more than 1 million visits per year.
“Attracting someone with Dan’s experience, talent, and vision positions GEDC to accelerate its growth at a dynamic time in the dental industry,” said Tim Armstrong, managing director of the Roark Capital Group, whose affiliates own a majority of GEDC. “We are excited to welcome Dan and look forward to him guiding the company in its continued success as one of the premier dental support organizations in the country.”
