    Vice President, Information Technology


    Company Description:  Founded in 1997, Heartland Dental provides non-clinical administrative support services to supported dental offices representing a network of over 1300 dentists. Heartland Dental’s mission is to support dentists and their teams as they deliver the highest quality dental care and experiences to the communities they serve, while also providing exceptional careers and creating value for all stakeholders.


    In 2018, leading global investment firm, KKR, became a majority investor in Heartland Dental with Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan becoming a minority investor. These key relationships strengthen our company’s stability and growth rate. With annual revenues exceeding $1 billion, we continue to expand our profitability and nationwide footprint. Growth is derived from same-office growth, new office development and new affiliations.  


    Company Culture:  Our Heartland Dental team is committed to advancing the field of dentistry through quality work. We seek hard workers who demonstrate the same passion for this rewarding field. Our professionals aren't afraid of a challenge. In fact, they thrive off the opportunity to grow. Through mentorship and partnerships, the successes of each individual become motivation for our entire team. Our outstanding team is the reason that Heartland Dental has expanded so rapidly over nearly two decades in the business.


    Leadership development is the cornerstone of our company’s culture.  For the last decade, Heartland Dental has partnered with the Bell Leadership Institute.  Bell Leadership principles permeate our company.  “This partnership provides a means to discover how to truly become all-around leaders in every facet of life. For supported dentists and team members, it means more unity, improved communication and an overall sense of effectiveness to propel them to reach their goals together,” explained Patrick Bauer, president and chief executive officer at Heartland Dental.


    To give you an idea, this position reports to the Executive Vice President, Technology and Patient Marketing and has a peer group of Vice President, Patient Services and Vice President, Patient Marketing.
