What Potential Recruits Want to Know
Director of Recruitment at
Heartland Dental Care
What specific traits does Heartland Dental Care look for in a new recruit?
You should be motivated, positive, flexible and open-minded. You should be open to expressing your needs and wants — that way we can make sure we're doing what we can to meet your expectations.
What can I do to prepare myself for the interview?
Prior to the interview, it's best to speak to one of our Recruiters and let them know what geographic areas you're interested in and what areas you would be open to. Having an updated copy of your resume highlighting your experiences during and after dental school is also helpful.
What can I expect from the recruiting process?
You will meet with one of our Recruiters face-to-face to discuss what your geographic area of interest is and if we have an opening there. If not, we will discuss other options available. You will also meet with the Regional Director of Operations for that particular area and another Heartland Dental Care dentist. We want to make sure that you're matched with the right office and team.
Where will I get placed?
If there is nothing available in your desired location, we try to get you as close to that location as as possible. The great thing about Heartland Dental Care is that we can transition dentists into other practices that may be a fit once openings become available.
What is the potential income for a new recruit?
On average, our newly recruited dentists make between $130,000 to $150,000 the first year, including bonuses based on collections and profit.
What are some of the other benefits of joining a dental service organization, specifically Heartland Dental Care?
Other benefits of joining HDC include mentorship from our network of successful, tenured dentists, preferred vendor relationships that save you money on supplies, unmatched continuing education and ongoing support from our Home Office.

With course topics ranging from leadership to clinical training, our continuing education will give you a firm foundation for growing your practice.
What kind of support can I expect from HDC while practicing?
Heartland Dental Care's Home Office support takes care of your practice's business aspects so you can focus on patient care instead. Areas of support include marketing, payroll, accounting, professional supplies and human resources. You will also receive field support from our Client Services team, as well as operational support within your practice from your Regional Director, Regional Administrator and Practice Administrator. We make sure all of your questions are answered and that you're completely aligned with your team, especially during the first few weeks.
How do I know if Heartland Dental Care is the right choice for me?
Just ask yourself, "What do I really want out of my career in dentistry?"
