New Member Benefit Announced

The Hispanic Dental Association recently forged an exclusive partnership to provide financing solutions to help grow HDA’s members’ practices. The firm selected was Fund-Ex, one of the nation’s leaders in financing for healthcare professionals.

Fund-Ex_RGBAl Canal, Chief Relations Officer of Fund-Ex stated, “We consider it an honor to be the exclusive financing partner of the Hispanic Dental Association.   This partnership will provide the much needed financing their members are looking for to grow their businesses.  Fund-Ex is looking forward to a prosperous long term relationship with the HDA.”

Securing funding in today’s economic climate has become very challenging, even for one of the nation’s Top SIC codes, dental healthcare providers.  Moreover, as the industry has evolved during the past several years, the general practitioner is simply doing more types of dental procedures.   With these new procedures come more opportunities, which in turn require additional training, technology and equipment.  With the ever-changing landscape in our country’s dental health arena, dentists must be able to expand and invest in order to maintain a solvent, up-to-date and prosperous practice.   Access to working capital is an important part of any practice that desires to offer clients the best care possible.

As the Nation’s leading working capital lender of dental professionals, Fund-Ex understands the day to day challenges of a busy dentist and has designed a program especially for HDA’s esteemed members.
Here are a few of the HDA member financing program features;

David Pena, CEO/Executive Director of HDA said, “Many dental practices, both large and small, find it challenging to secure the capital they need quickly.  The present financial market has created limited financial resources for today’s dental practitioner.  Fund-Ex has designed financing programs to help HDA’s dental professionals grow their practices.  At HDA we pride ourselves on providing our esteemed members with the very best solutions the market has to offer.  We are excited to partner with Fund-Ex and provide greater value to our members.”

Providing financial peace of mind for our nation’s dental practitioners is something that Fund-Ex has been doing for years.  It is good to know, there is a company amidst the financing sector that is supporting the growth of today’s dental healthcare providers.

Disturbing Shortage of Hispanic Dentists to Serve Rising Hispanic Population

There is a disturbing shortage of Hispanic dentists available to deliver dental care to an historically underrepresented minority (URM) in the United States—namely Hispanics. This shortage is all the more disturbing due to the disproportionate nature of practicing Hispanic dentists and Hispanic individuals applying to, attending, and graduating from dental schools across the nation. This disparity not only has a direct negative impact on the oral health of America’s Hispanic population, both today and into the future, it also has an indirect, but significant negative impact on American businesses. Improving general awareness among Hispanics through community education is an important way of increasing awareness of the critical importance of participation in both oral health practices and the pursuit of dental careers….READ MORE.
