Dental Practice – California

On January 18, 2013, my wife’s dream became a reality. When I look back, I remember Keith saying, “Live Oak is a relationship bank.”  I didn’t understand it at first, however, the statement became evident when I met members of Live Oak. After our meeting, I was left pinching myself on how real these people are.  Thank you again for making the dream come true, our lives have been changed as this practice has begun to open new doors for opportunities and relationships.

Keith Merklin was instrumental in making my dream of a new dental office come true.  The patience he exude while walking me through the process allowed me to trust him and Live Oak Bank.  The icing on the cake was his personal visit to my office…I was very impressed.  He has been available by phone immediately on the few occasions when I have needed him.  Without a doubt, I give big kudos and atta-boys to him and to the bank as a whole. I would recommend them without hesitation.

After identifying land and designing a 3,400 square foot, 7 operatory building, Chip and Jennifer turned to Live Oak Bank for practice financing.

“One thing that really impressed us was Live Oak’s willingness to see the ‘big picture’ when their competitors couldn’t,” explained Chip.  “Our vision was to bring a first-class dental facility to an area.  The team at Live Oak took the time to meet us in person and listened to our story. They looked through our raw numbers and saw the true potential of what we had to offer to our patients and our community.  We worked and negotiated with multiple lenders but kept going back to Live Oak [...]
