Heartland Dental–Fact or Fiction–Propaganda

Anyone find it funny Heartland Dental even needed to publish this propaganda piece.

Fall 2012 – Smiling Magazine – A Heartland Dental Care Publication

Heartland - Fact or Fiction

Friday, December 07, 2012

Just saying...

The Ontario Teachers Union is to Heartland Dental as the Teamsters Union was to the Mob - bankrolling illegal business.

Actually if you think about it the DSO is modeled much like a mafia organization. They steam roll over your business, telling the people, the state agencies, the dental associations and the dentist exactly what they want to hear. But as soon as they have infiltrated, it's their way or the highway. Laws? What laws? They are the Mob.

This is the Dental Service Organization! This IS the DSO!

The DSO model mostly originated in Pueblo, Colorado; rich is mafia bloodlines and history. So what else should be expected?

Ontario Teachers Union Pension Plan “takes control” of Heartland Dental–Anyone Thrilled?

Wasn’t it this same union who invested heavily in some dental clinics in NY a few months ago? No, it was Ontario Municipal Employees’ Retirement System (OMERS )and GEDC Super Holdings Inc., who bought 170 Great Expressions dental clinics.

WOW, that’s two Canadian pension plans who are invested in American’s dental care to the tune of 545 dental clinics!! Is anyone concerned about this at all? Buehler?

I don’t see the words: sell, sold, bought, but rather “take control” in the Heartland take over. I’m told it is all about Heartland’s ESOP plan.

A peek under the sheets at Heartland Dental

I ran across a propaganda piece today on – about the super duper fantastic Heartland Dental Care.
It tells about Heartland Dental, in Effingham, IL and what they can do for dentists who are finding it hard to develop their own dental offices. It tells dentists, that by becoming an “affiliate” of Heartland, it can “make your career better.” Their career will be better because Heartland “will increase your creditability and reputation”. It goes on to say:

  • “Working with this company will never lead you to regret”
  • ”your office will be way better”
  • “The company will help in marketing your office, providing you qualified staff,, managing your office, advertising your services and many more.”
  • ”people consider that dentists who are working under the name of the company are all professional”
  • “it is not the company that decides how your office should work. You can decide how you run your business yourself. The company just helps you reach your dream.”
  • “if you face serious problem when running your office, the company will give you effective suggestion in how to break the problem.”
  • “you will likely to become a partner of the company”

But what really happens?

Here is what I’m told

Heartland Dental–Rick Workman paid $3 mil to settle fraud charged in 2008; May 2012 they got their $3 million back

On May 23, 2012, Rick Workman breaks ground on a HUGE expansion for their corporate headquarters in Effing-no-where, IL. Part of the new facility will be for “training” purposes and I’m sure the psychiatric department will have new offices. Psychiatric department you ask? Yes, that’s what I’m told. If you can’t maintain your production numbers, they actually have psychologists come for a little chit chat. A little couch time, so to speak.

Now,less than 4 months later, Workman has put Heartland up for sale, asking price… a mere $1.4 BILLION dollars.

To here him tell it, he just leases the use of some appointment scheduling software, that he doesn’t even own, and does some payroll services for independent dental clinics. (liar, liar, pants on fire…) 

I’m sure the folks of Illinois are tickled pink to give Workman his $3 million dollars back for his “expansion”.  ( $3 mil is the EXACT amount Heartland had to pay to settle fraud allegations in 2008.) Did anyone hear the “Kennedy” tone in the voice?


In Effingham, IL Richard Eugene and Angie Workman’s home is located at 16130 Hildene Drive, Effingham, IL 62401
