Course Overview
Whether your dental school debt is staggering, or you feel like you have a handle on it — learn how you can pay it off quickly and start building your wealth and future now. Hear from new dentists who have been in your shoes as well as financial experts — vetted by the ADA — who can help you understand your options and get you on the road to financial success, sooner than later.

This presentation was developed in direct response to the concerns and challenges voiced by dental students and new dentists. A series of live and recorded webinars and supplemental content will cover financial concerns and options from dental school, immediately following graduation, 5 years from school and 10+ years in practice. Questions will be answered by financial experts and dentists.

The presentation explores these questions:
• How can I build a good credit rating to help me secure future loans or secure refinancing?
• I’ve got so much debt, how can I possibly think about loans for a practice or even a home?
• What types of insurance do I really need and how do I assess my options?
• Which should I be doing first — paying off debt or saving for my future?
• How can I secure a personal financial advisor and what should I look for?
