Great Expressions Dental center achieves federal certification for custom software

More than 270 Great Expression dental offices in 10 states, including the two Newnan offices, achieved governmental certification for their custom dental practice management software for the second consecutive year. The company relies on the software to maintain its customer-focused operations, using the system for scheduling appointments, billing and more.

Established by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, the Health IT Certification Program, the software certification is part of an initiative to ensure that health software programs conform to specific standards and criteria that have been adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

“Great Expressions Dental Centers is committed to providing patients with the highest quality of care by equipping our offices with the latest technologies,” said Richard Beckman, CEO of Great Expressions Dental Centers in a press release.

In order to receive the certification, the dental centers passed all government requirements to store, display, transmit, receive and secure all patient health information with their dental practice management software.

Mitchell recognized for client satisfaction

The American Institute of Family Law Attorneys has recognized the exceptional performance of Georgia’s Family Law Attorney S. Mark Mitchell as a 2016 10 Best Family Law Attorney for Client Satisfaction.

The American Institute of Family Law Attorneys is a third-party attorney rating organization that publishes an annual list of the Top 10 Family Law Attorneys in each state. Attorneys who are selected to the "10 Best" list must pass AIOFLA's rigorous selection process, which is based on client and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and AIOFLA’s independent evaluation. AIOFLA's annual list was created to be used as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process.

One of the most significant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys' relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney's top priority, AIOFLA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of Family Law without sacrificing the service and support they provide. Selection criteria therefore focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of Client Satisfaction.
