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.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Success Story

“Heartland Dental's leadership support taught me how to be a leader who can help and grow a team.”

Dr. David Hurst

Heartland Dental Supported Doctor

“I’ve only been out of school three years, but I have a lot of classmates who are already struggling, that have gone through two or three jobs. With the support my office gets from Heartland Dental, it’s a no-brainer. Why would I go to another office when if I can get this kind of day-to-day administrative support?”
