A dentist needs the right tools to succeed, including the right dental technology and high-quality materials. Otherwise, how can they provide the highest-quality care possible? From the beginning, Heartland Dental has made offering more cutting edge products and technology a priority…AND to offer them at reduced costs. That way, dentists can provide ideal care without breaking the bank.
In an effort to offer more clinical autonomy to supported dentists and ideal outcomes for their patients, Heartland Dental has negotiated industry-leading partnerships with independent labs – known in Heartland Dental-speak as “Diamond Trusted Labs.” Recently, the company took these efforts even further and expanded Diamond Trusted Lab options. This will secure even more lab options for dentists, including aesthetic options, and create more cost saving opportunities.
But what exactly is a Diamond Trusted Lab? Well, these are independent, industry-leading dental labs that Heartland Dental partners with. Specifically, Heartland Dental has focused on identifying labs that can:
- Accept and process digital scans
- Have proper patient and practice data security controls in place
- Have financial stability to properly handle liability claims
This expansion of Diamond Trusted Labs is another major step for Heartland Dental in creating move value for supported dentists and teams. The better service and products they have access to, they better quality of care they can provide their patients.
Also, this is another opportunity to partner with the nation’s best labs to create full-digital workflows, helping them provide an even higher quality of products, speed and service – similar to what’s taking place with Heartland Dental’s rollout of iTero® intra-oral scanners to supported offices.
