My Heartland.

It started with a vision, to establish a dental business by dentists for dentists, so practitioners could focus on what matters most – their patients. When entrepreneur, Dr. Rick Workman, and his team of doctors and leaders created Heartland Dental 25 years ago, they would end up revolutionizing dentistry and helping newer professionals building their dental careers. My Heartland captures the uplifting story of the people who helped the company become what it is today, fueled by Dr. Workman’s ambitious mission to help supported doctors and their teams deliver the highest quality dental care to their communities.
