“U.S. Bank earned our endorsement through its experience and expertise in tailoring financing solutions to the unique needs of orthodontic practitioners,” said Dr. Robert E. Varner, president of the AAO. “Their 15-year track record in practice finance proves they walk the talk and really understand the dental industry. Our members stand to greatly benefit from this relationship.”

In addition to preferred pricing on conventional and Small Business Administration (SBA) practice loans, U.S. Bank will provide AAO members with free individual consultations on their financing needs and other educational information on practice financing. Dedicated regional practice finance representatives will guide borrowers through the loan application process, with ongoing assistance available through a dedicated customer service phone number.

“We are honored that the AAO has placed its trust in us to serve the practice finance needs of its large and diverse membership,” said Jeramie Eimers, head of sales for U.S. Bank’s Practice Finance group. “When expanding, relocating, acquiring or setting up a new practice, orthodontists often face business and financial challenges. Our goal is to provide the expertise and guidance to allow them to focus less time on the financing and more time on running the practice. We are looking forward to helping AAO members achieve their business goals.”
