Heartland Dental, LLC, the largest dental support organization in the United States, recently procured additional Home Office space in Effingham to support the company's continual employment growth.

"Heartland Dental's mission of supporting affiliated dentists with non-clinical, administrative responsibilities is achieved by the talented men and women who comprise our Home Office team," explained Rick Workman, DMD, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Heartland Dental.  "As we continue to affiliate with more and more dentists, it is vital that we continually expand our Home Office support in order to best serve their needs.  With this additional space, we can effectively accommodate this expansion."

The 43,000-square-foot office building, previously occupied by Patterson Dental Supply, Inc., is located just south of Heartland Dental's Home Office.  Currently, over 300 people are employed at the Heartland Dental Home Office in various administrative support areas as accounting, human resources, marketing, supply procurement, information technology, payroll, insurance and more.  The additional location will assist in housing new Home Office support positions as the company continues to grow.

"Starting out with a handful of affiliated offices in 1997 to now having over 550 affiliated offices nationwide, our company has always emphasized and welcomed ongoing development.  In 2013, Heartland Dental was named the No. 3 job creator in the country and the No. 1 job creator in Illinois on Inc. Magazine's Hire Power List," said Patrick Bauer, President and Chief Operations Officer at Heartland Dental.  "With the new location we have obtained, we have an excellent opportunity to both enhance our support team and stimulate new employment opportunities in the Effingham area."
