In the dental support industry, I’m thrilled that Heartland Dental has become a leader in education and we look forward to expanding upon our opportunities in 2016.

Supported dentists and team members of Heartland Dental, LLC, the largest dental support organization in the United States, completed over 200,000 hours in continuing education through courses offered by Heartland Dental in 2015. This total includes over 34,000 participants and over 1,500 courses held.

“Staying educated in your field is necessary for all professions, but especially for dentists. You cannot expect to achieve success in today’s industry without seeking the knowledge and skills that currently drive the industry,” said Rick Workman, DMD, founder and active executive chairman at Heartland Dental. “Since our company was founded, we have understood the importance of continuing education and have strived to offer world-class opportunities for supported dentists that will truly impact their lives, the lives of their team members and the lives of their patients for the better.”

Each year, Heartland Dental supports a wide variety of educational offerings to help supported doctors and team members advance themselves personally and professionally. Annual offerings include the Doctor Mastery Program, Aesthetic Continuum, Partnering for Excellence, Dr. Leadership, Dr. LEADS and many others. Courses cover important topics in clinical dentistry, communication and leadership, and feature prominent educators from the dental industry and business world.

“Many of these supported offerings are now being regionally offered. This means smaller groups of participants, which will create more one-on-one, personalized training opportunities. With that, we can ensure all supported doctors and team members have access to these advantages and learn as effectively as possible. In addition, Heartland Dental supports dentists in achieving other educational achievements, such as an FAGD or MAGD recognition through the Academy of General Dentistry,” added Dr. Workman. “In the dental support industry, I’m thrilled that Heartland Dental has become a leader in education and we look forward to expanding upon our opportunities in 2016.”
