Built By Doctors, 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.

Your Practice, Your Way

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.
