Children’s dental practice finds National Bank of Arizona makes business easier
By Debra Gelbart
General Dentistry 4 Kids is a pediatric dental practice with 15 different locations in Arizona, Texas and Mississippi serving mostly low-income families. The business, which started with a single office in Phoenix, was established in 2000 by Brad Roberts, D.D.S. The mission of the business is to offer top-notch dental services and quality care to all children, regardless of income level. The staff at each location delivers care in a kid-friendly atmosphere that helps alleviate any fears of going to the dentist. Some locations also offer orthodontic services.
Brent Roberts, the president of the parent company of General Dentistry 4 Kids, says the company began doing business with National Bank of Arizona in 2006.
How has National Bank of Arizona helped your company?
When we wanted to grow our business, we engaged with National Bank of Arizona to accelerate that growth. They’ve helped us with business loans, lines of credit and support for our real estate purchases.
What do you value most about your partnership with NB|AZ?
The combination of ease of doing business and the personal connection with our banker, Jimmy Gaudiano. The bank is big enough to support everything we want to do but small enough to have that personal connection. It’s a good fit for who we are because we’ve grown pretty quickly, especially recently, and NB|AZ has been able to support that growth.
What sets NB|AZ apart from other banks?
We don’t have to jump through hoops and or work around obstacles like we might with some of the larger banks. NB|AZ makes it easy for us to focus on our business; with few exceptions, we don’t have to wonder whether we’ll get the funds we need when we need them.
What would you say to other small business owners about doing business with NB|AZ?
Get in touch with the bank and start developing a relationship. Whatever plans you have for your business, NB|AZ enables you to get done what you need to, without much overhead. The bank’s terms and rates are extremely competitive and your business banker will make sure the best interests of your company are served.
