Today, we’re honored to have Jonathan Miller, an expert in dental practice financing, guiding us through the common mistakes dentists often make after securing that coveted bank approval.
Together, we’ll explore these pitfalls in depth and outline strategies to circumvent them.
Partnering with the Right Lender: Trusting Expertise Over Uncertainty
One prevalent misstep dentists often make post-bank approval is seeking validation from unreliable sources.
Jonathan Miller shares a cautionary tale of a dentist, swept up in the euphoria of loan approval, who turned to family connections, leading to perplexity and doubt. Jonathan’s sagacious advice echoes clearly:
“Partner with the right lender… you’re only going to get so many indicators before you have to say, this is a good deal.”
Understanding the Importance of Indicators: Crafting Your Ideal Financing Deal
Deciphering a loan approval involves discerning what truly matters to you. Is it the interest rate, the loan amount, the term, or the structure?
Jonathan emphasizes prioritizing these factors to craft an ideal financing deal:
“What is most important to me in that banking deal? Is it a rate? Is it money? Is it a term? Is it the structure?… If you can get the majority of those most important to you, amazing; if you can get all of them, that’s a great deal, maybe the best deal.”
Overcoming Local Bank Limitations: Exploring Diverse Financing Avenues
Another misstep many dentists commit is limiting their options to local banks. Jonathan shares a story where a dentist faced rejection, nearly shattering her dreams.
His advice? Casting a wide net, especially toward major dental lenders, can open unexpected doors:
“It’s truly about casting that wide net… but if you know who you can trust and who to turn to, that makes all the difference in the world.”
