Dr. Sharlene Wilson

Dr. Shar has been practicing as a dentist for over 25 years since graduating from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She is the founder and owner of Heartland Dental Assisting, which she began in 2011 and had accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education in 2016. She started this program as a more, “affordable education opportunity” for those unable to afford the expensive cost of the standard 2-year programs. She hopes with this program she can help others find fulfillment in a job that they love and can continue to learn and grow into for many years to come.
