As a dentist, you are comfortable managing a team of dental professionals, helping patients achieve positive oral health outcomes, and continuing your education. You will be a leader of a Heartland Dental supported office—it’s that simple. You’ll continue to enjoy full clinical autonomy, competitive compensation from a supported professional corporation, access to state-of-the-art equipment, and mentorship programs within a network of more than 2,400 supported doctors. Find out what joining a supported practice could mean for you.
You have elite skills and ambitious personal and professional goals. Our supported practices can help you put those skills to work in an exciting environment and achieve your goals faster with our world-class administrative support system. Plus, you'll enjoy industry-leading compensation packages from supported PCs.
PTO / Holidays
All full-time supported doctors enjoy the flexibility to take time off in a way that best fits their lifestyle, and also to determine coverage plans that make sense in the office. Our supported practices observe six paid holidays annually, and full-time supported office team members are eligible to accrue at least two weeks of paid time off per year.
Health, Vision & Dental
Excellent dental care is (of course) part of the Heartland Dental supported doctor benefits package—for you and your family. Our supported practices also offer several health plans, as well as prescription, vision, and life insurance coverage.
We want our supported doctors to thrive and remain with the Heartland Dental support network for the long haul. Compensation packages for full-time supported doctors extend beyond a competitive, guaranteed base salary, offering you the opportunity to earn significantly more than the average dentist in the U.S., without the stress.
Doing your best work for your patients is rewarding, but there’s also more to life than your career. Our supported practices strive to create an environment that encourages you to thrive inside the office and out. Teams work hard and play hard and are well taken care of in a fun work environment.

Between regional doctor dinners, local mentorship, and continuing education I always feel supported and connected. I owe much of my success in my first year as a dentist to Heartland Dental, and I am eager to discover my growth potential with continued support!”

What attracted me to Heartland Dental was 1) the availability of mentorships and the fact that there were other supported doctors willing to help me out and teach me 2) the educational opportunities – way more than what I even realized at the beginning and 3) leading my team in the practice and being able to implement all these things I was learning. Those are the same reasons I am still here – it’s been a great journey.”

Working as a Heartland supported Doctor has been such a blessing as a new graduate with over $500K in loans. I retain the business and clinical autonomy I want from private practice, without the stress of a business owner. Instead, I get a team of specialized support office members who are always looking out for me, so I can look out for my patients.”
