Work-Life Balance

Your career is part of your life, not your entire life! At Heartland Dental, we strive to create an environment that encourages success and satisfaction in and out of the office. We’ll help you find the right balance for a fulfilling life.

We’re here on the support side to do everything to make them successful – not all Dental Support Organizations operate that way – and it truly sets Heartland apart. The philosophy of being doctor-led shows up every day and in everything we do.”

Kirk Walters

Recruiting Manager

Because we are a doctor-led culture and provide non-clinical administrative support, we don’t tell doctors what to do, it’s really a collaborative relationship with the supported doctors to help them succeed and grow their practice. If a supported office follows processes and everyone plays their part, then the doctor can focus on providing excellent clinical care.”

Regional Director of Operations

I was looking for a career that would help me advance my business skills, as well as help me educate others so they could advance themselves. I’ve been able to do that and then some.”
