Dr Salem established his practice in 1979 and has 34 years of dental experience. The addition of Dr Salem’s practice in the Great Expressions network will provide patients with a second Great Expressions location in the Jacksonville area.

Great Expressions also announced the renaming of the former Dental Health Group practice located at 751 Oak Street, Suite 601, Jacksonville, FL to Great Expressions Dental Centers.

Dr Salem said: “We are excited to be part of the Great Expressions family of dental offices and continuing to serve our community with great service and quality dental care for which our patients rely on us. And we have the resources of a network of dental specialists, the latest training, and insurance expertise provided by Great Expressions.

“We expect to quickly join new insurance plans and participate in all of the insurance plans that are offered in the Jacksonville area. In addition, we have completely remodeled our facility to better serve our patients in the future.”

Richard Beckman, chief executive officer of Great Expressions, said: “The acquisition of Dr Salem’s practice and upcoming renaming of our current ‘Dental Health Group’ office to ‘Great Expressions’ confirms our commitment to increasing our presence with additional convenient locations for the residents of Jacksonville. Dr Salem’s dedication to patient care and clinical excellence affirms Great Expressions’ mission to provide quality, affordable dental care in a comfortable, friendly environment.”
