Why He Was Nominated

He designed his beautifully appointed office from scratch in partnership with his wife and co-owner, Melissa, who is also a dentist. “The practice started to grow from nothing,” Dr. Heller says. The duo’s shared vision, he adds, is to offer the highest-quality care for a reasonable price.

Tool He Can't Live Without

Dentrix. It allows him to maintain a completely paperless office.

Favorite Aspect of Dentistry

Being intertwined with the community. “[Melissa and I] built a practice four blocks from our home,” he says. “We walk to work 99 percent of the time. When we take our daughter to the park, we run into our patients. When we walk our dogs, we see our patients driving by.”
