Heartland Dental is the largest DSO in the U.S. It was founded in 1997 by Rick Workman, DMD, who opened his first two dental offices in Effingham, IL. It currently supports more than 2,300 dentists in over 1,500 offices across 38 states. The DSO recently announced an affiliation with LWSS Family Dentistry.
Since its founding 50 years ago, LWSS Family Dentistry doctors have expanded their office footprint with their teams across the Virginia Tidewater area to generations of patients. LWSS Family Dentistry brings 7 individual practices and 14 general dentists, 3 orthodontists, 1 pediatric and 1 dual certified orthodontist/pediatric dentist to the Heartland Dental support network.
“Over the last few months, we have had the opportunity to get to know the Heartland Dental support team and we quickly realized LWSS Family Dentistry and Heartland Dental had similar mentalities of putting patient care first and providing support to doctors. It also became clear that by joining Heartland Dental’s network, our doctors and team members would have access to expansive resources which would strengthen their dental practices and ability to serve their patients. We are proud to have delivered the best dental care services in the Virginia Tidewater area for five decades and look forward to continuing to do so with this strategic partnership with Heartland Dental.” – Keith M. Goldstein, D.D.S., LWSS Family Dentistry
