Did you know that Heartland Dental is the largest dental support organization in the country? We’re proud to continue our nationwide growth by now supporting over 800 offices!

In September, Today’s Family Dental in Waco, TX became our 800th supported office. This milestone is especially significant as we celebrate 20 years of Heartland Dental this year.

“What great timing to reach this milestone during our 20th anniversary year!” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Bauer. “With the combined efforts of so many, we have become the largest dental support organization in the U.S. and continue to make strides in our mission of becoming the leader in dentistry.”

A handful of our employees and supported doctors have been instrumental in our growth since day one. In fact, four of Heartland Dental’s “originals” have even created legacies within the company. Each family has their own story to tell, and you can read about their individual paths to Heartland Dental here.

Over the last two decades, our company is fortunate to have achieved many milestones. From the 1st supported office to the 800th, we’ve been able to accomplish so much due to the individual contributions of each member of our network. As we continue to reach milestones, we know they will support us as much as we support them.

“This 800th office milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of [all our] supported doctors and team members. We wouldn’t be at this level without their efforts,” said Dr. Rick Workman, Founder and Executive Chairman.

Heartland Dental currently supports over 1,250 dentists and has more than 11,000 team members. Our footprint spans 34 states.
