CDA Oasis Conversations: What should you look for in a banker?
James Pelletier, VP Health Care at the Royal Bank of Canada, spoke with Dr. Suham Alexander about what dentists should look for when choosing to work with a bank or a financial institution for their personal and professional needs.
- Each “stage” in the life cycle of the dentist from dental student through retirement will have specific needs that become increasingly complex with regards to financial requirements.
- The financial institution that a dental professional chooses must understand the dental industry as well as the opportunities and challenges one is presented with along the way.
- While product offerings and pricing structures at banks may be similar, there is an advantage in dealing with a banker or institution that “specializes” in the dental and/or healthcare industry.
