The art and science of dentistry goes far beyond teeth. You want to grow your business wisely, and working with a lender who has experience in your industry is part of that equation. Live Oak Bank has financed over $700 million in practice loans to dental and medical professionals for acquisition, expansion, construction, commercial real estate, refinance, working capital and more.

Because we’re able to accept lower down payments than a conventional lender usually requires, your dental practice retains more cash to keep up with the pace of business. Whether you are a General Dentist, Pediatric Dentist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Orthodontist, Endodontist, Periodontist or Prosthodontist—we can help you build the practice of your dreams through financing.
