Heartland Dental Invades Nevada and Kansas

Heartland Dental invades Kansas and Nevada. Kansas isn't paying attention to who it lets practice dentistry I see. Corporate dentistry is spread like the swine flu these days. The places do NOT deliver the care and treatment you are used to receiving from you local family dentist. Please stay away from them and do your homework before making that appointment. A simple google search for complaints will do the trick.

Here is the latest breaking news Heartland has put out. Take it as a warning.

Well I have worked for Heartland dental care for 14yrs, and I have worked in another corporate dental offices and I can tell you HDC gives exceptional care and the Dentists of HDC are able to learn the newest and latest techniques! And so when you say these corporate dental offices are all the same, I must ask you... How do you know? Have you been to one of our offices or are you a struggling dentist upset with your own situation and have no patients so the only thing you can do all day is get on the internet and complain about the GREATEST DENTAL COMPANY in the WORLD! For employee's, Dentists, and patients!
