  • Dental assistants have to think ahead. They have to be visionaries, mind readers, to be able to help the doctors. And then they also have to have a serious amount of compassion, so they can help people to be comfortable and to be excited about dentistry." - Sherrie Busby, Dental Assistant Training Developer and OSHA Training Developer To all the Dental Assistants in our Supported Offices and beyond - Happy Dental Assistants Recognition Week! We appreciate all the hard work you bring to your practice day in and day out. Make it a great week!

    I have been working at Heartland Dental full-time (Less than a year)


    After working 10+ years in private practice, I made the switch. The structure and support that Heartland Dental offers its doctors, managers, administrators and clinical team are just outstanding. They provide everything so the doctor(s) can focus on providing the best dentistry possible and the team can stay motivated and enjoy work - and honestly, it shows to our patients.

    The pay and benefits are good, the company-wide incentives are fun and motivating, and the strong focus on patient care is apparent in every facet of the company.

    I would strongly recommend a career with Heartland Dental, it's more than just a job - it's being given an opportunity to function at a higher level and who doesn't want to go home at night knowing you're making a real difference?


    I honestly haven't come across anything that the company doesn't already know about and doesn't already have people brainstorming ways for improvement. This company really listens to the needs of its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding quality, ambitious and caring doctors and support staff to keep growing this wonderful company!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Heartland Dental in October 2019.


    Process began with a phone interview with a director of recruitment. After the phone interview, I had a video interview with the regional director and moved forward with an in-office shadowing.
