Dr. Samson Liu

Owner & Founder

My family and I moved from Hong Kong to Canada when I was 12 so I grew up with a strong work ethic of nothing is handed to you, you have to earn it yourself. After graduating from the University of Toronto, I accepted a scholarship to Northwestern University in Chicago. It was there that both my personal and professional journey began. I met my wife in dental school, started my first job with Heartland Dental in 1999, and for the past 18 years was an integral part of Heartland Dental’s growth from 13 practices, $13mm revenue in 1999 to 800 practices, $1.3 billion revenue in 2017.

Keisha Lewis

Chief Operations Officer

After over 12 years with Heartland Dental in various capacities, she oversaw the development of systems and processes for the Clinical Team, led companywide practice growth initiatives in adopting new clinical technologies and established the clinical evaluation process for clinical technologies, instruments and materials, to reduce procurement cost, while maintaining high standard of care. 

She was integral in the development of the training curriculum and implementation process of digital intraoral scanners for Heartland, which led to double-digit same-store sales growth in 2016-2017, before the KKR majority transaction in 2018. She enjoys traveling, speaking, and attending TED conferences in her spare time. She is also passionate about women advocacy in Dentistry.
