Dental Practice Finance


What our clients say about us
In 2021 I purchased my first dental practice. I wanted to make sure I got the best finance deal with the best terms in order to support my overall business model. Martin How at Lily Head Finance helped me with advice from the outset. Martin made the processes very easy to understand and clearly explained all of the available options from his bank lending panel along with the associated fees and cost of borrowing. The process ran smoothly, the advice was very good and the finance was in place when I needed it. I am really pleased with the service and value that Martin provided and I would recommend Lily Head Finance to any colleagues who need to fund a practice.

Daniel Beaumont

Riversdale Dental Practice

I can wholeheartedly recommend Martin How and the team at Lily Head Finance.  Martin played a key role in the acquisition and financing for our first dental practice purchase and offered his time, guidance and support in the time leading up to completion.  As a first time buyer the process was made very smooth having Martin’s wealth of experience in the industry knowledge to lean on. But as importantly, I know I got a much better finance package than I could have found or negotiated myself.

Sachin Soni

Lady Bay Dental Care

I approached Martin How to raise a substantial loan to fund a specific transaction that was not for a regular purpose.  Initially, I was slightly sceptical about whether Martin could help, how long the process would be, and how involved he would be in helping me achieving my goal. I was quickly surprised at the speed and efficiency of Martin who spent a long time reviewing my current financial accounts and assisting with projections to present to lenders.  Once this information was collated he tendered my requirements to a number of banks from which I received 4 good offers and subsequently proceeded with one. Martin was excellent from start to finish.  As a clinician who firstly does not have the skills to present financial information to banks, and I was working clinically every day, I would have struggled to present the correct information and contact the banks individually.  He did this all, allowing me to concentrate on running my business and dentistry. He was also very caring, responsive to emails, and worked well with other financial/legal parties who were working on the transaction. I would highly recommend Martin and will definitely be using him again.
