The Doctor Mastery Program is a big step in addressing the actual needs of the industry. It’s a big step towards advancing Heartland Dental as a leader in dentistry and signifies our company’s growth as a respected leader.

Heartland Dental, LLC, the largest dental support organization in the country, recently announced the rollout of the Doctor Mastery Program, an initiative designed to help supported dentists truly achieve personal and professional expertise.

Supported by Heartland Dental, the Doctor Mastery Program will help dentists of all experience levels become the definitive dental leaders of their respective marketplaces. The five-year program is open to all Heartland Dental supported dentists and consists of clinical training conducted by leading clinicians, beginning with foundational skills and advancing toward mastery of complex dental care. Over the five-year timeframe, the program will help participating dentists achieve a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry, increase access to care, mentor other clinicians and grow their offices by the end of the program. In addition, participants who complete all program requirements will receive a “mastery bonus” up to $250,000 which can totally or greatly eliminate student loan debt.

“I’m extremely proud and excited to kick off this program. All in all, everyone involved will benefit – the participants, their families, their team members and most importantly, their patients,” explained Rick Workman, DMD, founder and active executive chairman at Heartland Dental. “The Doctor Mastery Program is a big step in addressing the actual needs of the industry. It’s a big step towards advancing Heartland Dental as a leader in dentistry and signifies our company’s growth as a respected leader. I believe all participants will be extremely proud of the results they achieve.”

This program addresses a vital component of the dental industry – continuing education. As the dental industry continues to evolve, along with evolving patients and technology, advanced education is essential now more than ever. The program also offers an ideal solution to one of the biggest challenges facing young dentists – student loan debt. In today’s industry, the importance of this cannot be overstated. According to the ADA, only 50 percent of new dental graduates currently enter private practice once graduating and many new grads come out of school with upwards of $300,000 in debt, making it extremely difficult to open and grow a solo practice.

“It is our job to ensure supported dentists not only receive world-class, non-clinical support, but every possible opportunity to comprehensively further themselves as clinicians and leaders,” added Dr. Rick Workman. “The Doctor Mastery Program will allow Heartland Dental to accomplish this mission like never before. We have always emphasized continuing education, but the magnitude of this program, in terms of what is being offered and what can be achieved as a result, is on a whole new level.”
