Dental Practice Loan
May 27, 2017. The most successful way to get a dental practice loan is against the assets of the practice or against the sales of the practice.
This loan using dental practice sales can obtain significant funding amounts. Since all dental practices have sales, almost all practices should be able to obtain funding through this program.
Does my particular Dental Practice qualify for a Dental Practice Loan? Basic general guidelines include:
– $7,500 to $250,000
– 3 Months Time in Business
-Approximately 500 + credit score
No application fees or upfront fees.
More difficult transactions are done routinely.
– The financing process generally takes 2 to 5 business days.
If a Dental Practice is profitable and has equipment assets, it is to the Practice’s benefit to use the equity in their equipment for other business needs, rather than to leave the equity in the equipment.
For this program based on the gross sales of the business, the funding is based primarily on the most recent cash flow of the business. The dental practice provides a one page application and the most recent 3 months complete business checking accounts statements. Credit is only a minor factor for this program. Credit bureau scores of 500 and higher are acceptable under this program. In some cases, scores lower than 500 may be accepted.
Once the statement are received, the main numbers that are looked at for each month are the average daily balance, the total dollar amount in deposits per month, the number of deposits per month. The beginning and ending balances are reviewed however they are not main considerations in the review.

Question: What is the amount we can qualify for? Answer: The amount your business has the opportunity to qualify for in this Dental Practice Loan depends primarily upon the time in business, the business credit, the credit of the owner(s), and the amount requested. Other factors may include the company’s cash flow, and bank account statements. All of these factors may not come into play for any given request.
Question: Will a signer, or guarantor be required, or can the request be approved just in the name of the company? Answer: If one signer has 51% ownership, this will be enough in most cases.
Question : What if we are approved and then realize we need more funding?
Answer: If your practice is funded $50,000 and then realizes it needs more, a second dental practice loan segment can be requested. Many dental practices realize that they needed more funding than the original request. In such instances, the practice can simply request another part for whatever they need. This happens in many cases and is common. Many existing customers have two loans on the books.

Question: Can I pay this dental practice loan off early and get a discount?
Answer: This will depend on when you pay it off and how your repayment history

is normally offered. The discount normally is up to 5% to 10% off the total of the payment.
