Investing in Practice Growth Webinar

Invest in your practice

Keeping your practice up-to-date with the latest equipment and technology in an office that comfortably accommodates patients and staff is one way to stay competitive and keep growing. But how do you know when it’s time to update or expand – and how much you can afford to invest? One powerful indicator is practice cash flow. While it provides a snapshot of how you’re doing financially, cash flow also plays a critical role in your ability to secure financing. Learn from a lender’s perspective on how to evaluate your practice’s potential and plan next steps as you consider where you are now and how to get to where you want to be.

In this webinar you will learn to:

  • Recognize when and why it’s time to expand or update your office
  • Understand how cash flow impacts your ability to secure financing
  • Evaluate and select the appropriate financing program
