Heartland Dental adds 100+ dentists in 2020

The pandemic has not slowed Heartland Dental's growth, as the Effingham, Ill.-based DSO has added more than 100 new dentists in 2020.

The DSO, which includes more than 1,700 dentists in nearly 1,100 dental practices across 38 states, provides dental practices with assistance with human resources, IT, marketing, supply, accounting and insurance credentialing. It also offers dentists and hygienists an array of professional development and continuing education opportunities.

"We have seen an incredible response in our recent doctor affiliations, many of whom want to grow their practice, gain non-clinical administrative management relief, or plan their transition as they think about retirement," Patrick Bauer, Heartland Dental's president and CEO, said in an Oct. 22 news release. "Others are simply seeking support and connection during this time."
