Supporting Dental Hygienists & Their Careers

By Heartland Dental

At Heartland Dental we're proud to support doctors and their team members. An essential part of that team is the dental hygienists. We're featuring the stories of dental hygienists supported by Heartland Dental on the blog to give you insight on what it's like to be affiliated with Heartland Dental.

Check out Sarah's story! 

"I have been a hygienist for eight years. I completed dental hygiene school at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville. After graduation, I worked in a private practice for over a year and was not looking for a job. Coming to work for a Heartland Dental supported office was an extremely pleasant surprise for me and my career. It's been a completely different experience for me than what I originally expected. Heartland Dental is a doctor led company and focuses on synchronizing with supported doctors and team members. My typical day starts out with a motivating morning meeting to plan for our day. Usually, I see a mix of patients in a busy, fast-paced environment while providing the best quality care possible. Being a dental hygienist in a supported office has been amazing for my career. In this role, I stay up-to-date on cutting edge technology through continuing education classes, as well as immersion with the various products and techniques. I love that I get to work proactively to give my patients the best preventative care possible.  

It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day routine and become complacent in patient care. Dental care is a daily practice and there is always a network of supported dental hygienists to help you work through problems or answer questions you might have. 

Working with Heartland Dental supported Doctors has helped me realize that I don't just want to treat a dental disease, I want to prevent it for my patients. It has also given me confidence and taught me the value of being positive and adaptable."
