Here's More About Us

In 1997, Dr. Rick Workman founded Heartland Dental after a long and successful career as a dentist. After running his own practice, Dr. Workman understood that most dentists started their career because they love helping patients – and unfortunately, running a practice often comes with other administrative, logistical, and business duties that fill up a dentist's schedule and hamper their ability to care for patients. Dr. Workman founded Heartland Dental to solve that problem, and since then, Heartland Dental has grown into the nation's leading dental support organization, providing comprehensive support and professional services to dentists and dental professionals all over the country.

The Heartland Dental network is a connected professional community of doctors, hygienists, administrative professionals and dental industry gurus who work together to help every member of the network grow and thrive. Together, we make up the Heartland Dental family, and we are committed to the same mission and vision:

Mission: To support dentists and their teams as they deliver the highest quality dental care and experiences to the communities they serve while providing exceptional careers and creating value for our stakeholders.

Vision: To be a world-class company and the leader in dentistry.

At the core of Heartland Dental is an environment focused on creating value, building education and fostering growth. As we continue to evolve, we hope that you will be part of the journey.
