The cosmetic dentistry practice of brothers Robert Klaich, DMD, LVIF and Brian Klaich, DMD, LVIF, was so popular it quickly outgrew its 3,500 square foot rented office space in the Pittsburgh suburb of Cranberry Township.
After attending a Small Business Administration (SBA) loan seminar, they turned to PNC Bank’s healthcare business banker Melissa Kwiatkowski who walked them through the steps needed to make their dream of a larger dental practice office space come true.
Created in 1953, the SBA has since supported millions of small businesses, like the Klaiches’ dental practice, through lending and other programs. SBA financing is considered a mainstream financing option for viable growing companies who want to leverage the program’s cash flow advantages, including longer repayment terms of up to 25 years and lower down payments with as little as 10% down compared to conventional terms.
PNC and the SBA agreed that the Klaiches would be a good candidate for a loan with the flexibility the SBA lending program uniquely offers. Closing within 90 days, the result is a new $2 million building now under construction that they will be able to call their own…the Cranberry Dental Studio.
With the right healthcare business knowledge, the right tools, the right people and a can-do attitude, small businesses can make their dreams happen. And there are a lot more bright smiles in suburban Pittsburgh today because of these two determined dentists.
