Heartland Dental and its supported dentists provided more than $2 million in charitable donations and free dental care in 2018. The company currently supports 1,400 dentists in more than 900 dental offices in 37 states.
“Giving back as an organization is an important part of who Heartland Dental is and the culture we have built,” said Patrick Bauer, president and chief executive officer at Heartland Dental.
“We seek to not only help dentists achieve more, but support organizations locally and nationally who are helping others daily as well as the educational institutions who are shaping future leaders,” Bauer said.
“I’m also very proud of all our supported dentists who are donating their time and energy to give back to those in need in our communities,” Bauer said.
As a company, Heartland Dental has given back locally to prominent charities and educational institutions in the Effingham, Illinois, area as well as to charitable organizations within the dental industry.
Also, dentists supported by Heartland Dental have impacted the patients and communities they serve by donating free dental care in events such as Free Dentistry Day, which provides aid to the growing number of adult Americans who can’t afford dental services.
