Success Stories

“I can accelerate my clinical skill sets to become the best dentist.”

Dr. Zina Berry

Supported Doctor, Syracuse, NY

“Heartland Dental is very much different because it is centered on dentists themselves and you, as the dentist, get to continue to do what you do best. As a matter of fact, you get to do it even better because now you get an opportunity to focus on clinical skill sets rather than managing people.”

  • Reality #3: The Supply Chain Directly Affects Your Staff and Patients
    by Heartland Dental on May 10, 2022 at 2:00 pm

    Blog Series: Top 3 Supply Chain Realities In 2022 and How They Affect Your Bottom Line In this series of 3 blog posts, we discuss the state of the supply chain in 2022 and what you can do to navigate challenges and protect your bottom line.   It’s virtually impossible to have a conversation about supply chain realities without taking the time to consider the actual people who are involved on both sides of the supply management process. In our previous two posts, we examined how supply chain price hikes and lab relationships affect your practice and ultimately your bottom line. Now, It’s important to consider how both your staff and your patients can be directly affected by your procurement process. Whether you are doing the bulk of  the supply work or you delegate these tasks to your staff, the more time spent on ordering and procurement means less time spent chairside, which can put your bottom line and, more importantly, your patients at risk.

    Blog Series: Top 3 Supply Chain Realities In 2022 and How They Affect Your Bottom Line In this series of 3 blog posts, we discuss the state of the supply chain in 2022 and what you can do to navigate challenges and protect your bottom line.   It’s no surprise that the pandemic created supply chain challenges all over the world, the dental industry included. In our first post, we confronted the reality of post-pandemic price hikes and how you can continue to successfully manage your practice and protect your bottom line. In this post, we take a look at the truth behind another important piece of the supply chain puzzle: dental labs.
