Description of Speaker:
Mark Greenstein, Executive Vice President of Strategy & Development of Heartland Dental
Mark Greenstein is one of Heartland Dental’s most interesting people. Prior to joining Heartland Dental, he had a long career in consulting and asset management including as an associate partner at McKinsey & Co. Mark leads our footprint growth, payer relations and many of our “knotty” cross-functional strategies, as well as helping our supported doctors receive the best products at the best prices. When wearing his opportunity creator hat, he focuses on originating and managing strategic partnerships that help Heartland Dental and its supported offices grow. Mark is a native “New Yawker” with an energetic personality. When he’s not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, two kids, two dogs and five goldfish (number of fish changes often due to tank conditions). His favorite quote is from Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption, “Get busy living or get busy dying,” and Bruce Springsteen is his inspiration.

Timothy Quirt, DDS, Vice President of Clinical Operations at Heartland Dental
Prior to affiliating with Heartland Dental in 2012, Dr. Quirt helped form Quirt Family Dentistry. This Wisconsin-based practice grew to 13 practices in six years, making it one of the most successful dental groups in the country. Dr. Quirt now concentrates his talents on doctor recruitment and retention efforts in addition to clinical operation support and communication. Dr. Timothy Quirt earned his DDS degree from Marquette University Dental School, where he graduated with honors and was consistently on the dean's list for outstanding academic achievement. While there, he was also asked to lecture and become the course coordinator for an undergraduate class at Marquette. Dr. Tim Quirt is a member of the ADA, the WDA, the American Association of Endodontists, and the Central Wisconsin Dental Society. Outside of dentistry, he enjoys skiing, basketball, and golf. He is also involved in dental politics and teaching.
