(PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Heartland Dental Care, LLC (“Heartland Dental”) - the largest dental support organization in the United States - announced today that it has affiliated with My Dentist Holdings, LLC, (“My Dentist”), an Oklahoma City based dental support organization, which is affiliated with 55 My Dentist Complete Care Dentistry offices in Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, Kansas and Arkansas.
“Everyone at Heartland Dental is extremely excited to have the My Dentist affiliations join our family. Their leadership, goals and overall mission are directly aligned with ours,” explained Patrick Bauer, President and Chief Operations Officer at Heartland Dental. “They’ve seen much success with their systems; I can’t wait to see what we can learn from them. We’re also excited to have their executive team and dentists join us at our annual doctor holiday party this weekend to celebrate this affiliation together.”
My Dentist’s predecessor company was founded in 1983 by Dr. Pat Steffen. The My Dentist branded affiliated dental offices provide general dentistry services, along with specialty care in orthodontics and oral surgery. With the passing of Dr. Steffen in August 2012, Dr. Jennifer Chambers, Clinical Director and Kevin Offel, Chief Executive Officer and President of My Dentist, assumed active leadership roles within the organization. During their tenure at My Dentist, they have achieved major benchmarks, including expanding the number of affiliated dental offices from 30 to 55 locations and growing its infrastructure. My Dentist, together with its affiliated dental practices, has 805 employees, including 109 dentists and 71 hygienists.
“It was very important for us to affiliate with an organization that would preserve the doctor-led vision Dr. Steffen created 30 years ago. Sharing that same vision, I have no doubt that Heartland Dental was the right choice,” said Offel. “The wellbeing of our patients, doctors and employees is top priority. With Heartland Dental’s support, we’ll have access to the tools and resources to effectively support their best interests.”
“My Dentist offices now have access to a variety of Heartland Dental’s support services such as marketing, accounting, information technology, human resources, supplies and more. In addition, our affiliated doctors and team members will be offered unequaled continuing education opportunities to advance both their clinical and leadership skills,” explained Dr. Chambers. “Like My Dentist, Heartland Dental’s support features many talented, dedicated individuals who are passionate about making the company’s vision come to life.”
With the completion of the My Dentist affiliation, Heartland Dental has demonstrated the ability to affiliate with a large number of offices and provide the necessary support to best serve their needs on a mass scale. In total, the company now provides dental support services to 529 affiliated dental offices in 26 states.
