Each year, Heartland Dental presents a supported dentist with the Eagle Award. This award recognizes recipients for their outstanding contributions to their patients and the industry as a whole. The recipient of the 2015 Eagle Award was Mark Kucharczyk, DMD, practicing dentist at Linderhof Family Dental Care in Arnold, Missouri.
Since joining Heartland Dental right out of dental school in 2003, Dr. Kucharczyk has exemplified what the company is all about — personal and professional advancement. He is also an early pioneer of the Doctor Mastery Program, which helps Heartland Dental supported dentists achieve a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry. This initiative is an excellent opportunity for supported dentists to grow themselves and expand access to care. But even before the program was announced and implemented, Dr. Kucharczyk took it upon himself to advance his office – bringing in Dr. Cody Krech, expanding office hours and increasing his level of patient care.
Since 2010, he has been steadily growing his practice and level of patient care year after year, but continually looked for ways to expand his six-chair facility even further. He expanded his access to care in 2015 by 25 percent with only having his partner dentist there for a portion of time.
Heartland Dental would like to thank Dr. Kucharczyk again for helping spearhead the Doctor Mastery Program. This initiative will be a game changer for Heartland Dental, as well as the rest of the industry in the years to come.
