Featured Review

Current Employee - Recruitment Marketing Strategist

I have been working at Heartland Dental full-time for less than a year

Pros

Everyone is so excited for what we have coming in the future. Because we are a bigger company, it can take time to roll out new things, but they're all worth it. At the center of all of the work and... focus is making sure that we are helping our supported doctors have the time to take care of their patients their way without worrying about the paperwork and logistics that come with owning a dental practice. No idea is a bad idea, leadership is very open to hearing what you have to say to improve a process. Also, leadership is NOT inaccessible. They are around and involved and have not sold their souls to the status quo. Being proactive and identifying opportunities is valued over being negative and subscribing to the "this is the way we've always done it so why change" mentality. It has been a breath of fresh air coming from another corporation where a lot of people conformed to "that's just the way it is" before even considering if an obstacle could be bypassed.

Cons

I have yet to come across a con.

Advice to Management

Keep having constructive conversations with your team members! If you ask them what they need, they will tell you!
