Our Core Values

Paving the Way

Our founder, Dr. Duke Heller, was a pioneer in implant dentistry. Searching for a denture alternative, he began creating implants in the 1960s in his basement. He worked together with dentists all over the country to develop multiple implant options for different patient needs.

Training Others

In 1980, he founded the Midwest Implant Institute as the first implant training center in the United States. Have your implant placed where doctors come to train.

The Family Legacy Continues

Ten years later, his son Rob Heller joined the practice after dental school. Today it continues to be a family practice with Dr. Rob Heller at the helm and his daughters serving as office manager and insurance coordinator.
