PRLog - Jul. 27, 2012 - FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  – Kaplan College Jacksonville honored Great Expressions Dental Centers as Employer of the Year at its June 22 commencement ceremony.

Great Expressions recently hired four Kaplan College Jacksonville graduates, including Jones.

“Kaplan College students and graduates are important assets to our practices,” said Dr. Robert Brody, Florida clinical and regional director, Great Expressions Dental Centers. “We are consistently impressed with the level of skill and commitment that Kaplan students bring to our offices.”

The partnership between Great Expressions Dental Centers and Kaplan College is an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship that provides Kaplan’s top students the opportunity to apply their education and gain real-world experience in the workplace.
