Founded By A Doctor, For Doctors

Becoming a dentist and building your practice was all about having the freedom to care for your patients. But at some point, the administrative tasks took over. Our Founder understood because he'd been there. Heartland Dental helps make your life easier with robust staffing, equipment, and non-clinical support services. We promise our supported doctors and employees the opportunity to build the futures they want while also securing their legacy in the communities they serve.

The Doctor Difference

Be the dentist you want to be with world-class support from us. As the largest and most experienced DSO in the nation, we can help you navigate today's payor, supplier, and support team challenges and opportunities. And no one is more experienced than Heartland Dental—after all, we’ve been helping doctor-owners transition while retaining clinical independence and obtaining outstanding compensation from their professional corporations since 1982.

Affiliation

True Clinical Independence

Every supported doctor is unique, and we tailor our support to meet those varying needs. Some require administrative aid to continue growing their practices, while others want a better work-life balance and more time to spend with their families. And through the affiliation process with a Heartland Dental supported PC, you’ll get cash for the equity you have worked so hard to build. Plus, enjoy access to our tried-and-true operational systems and leadership and skill development programs to help you deliver world-class patient care and experiences.

“If you do the right thing for the right reason, everybody wins.”

Dr. John Mahoney

Supported Doctor, New Iberia, IL

“Heartland Dental has so much to offer and I think I’m probably a better dentist because of the amount of continuing education that’s available. I’m enjoying dentistry more now because of the camaraderie and this family of peers that are all on the same page, striving for excellence.”

    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.
