The founder of Dental Debt Solutions LLC, Dr. Kevin Walker recently had an interview with us. During our conversation, he discussed how he came up with the idea of the Dental Debt Solution. As he mentioned, it serves as a platform for all dentists and specialists in the field. Dr. Kevin inspired and founded the company after experiencing the financial issues newly qualified dentists go through. According to him, the only thing that matters is finding a job, refinancing your school debt, and paying the debt down for a new dentist. He is willing to help young doctors at the beginning of their careers where many are not willing to help at all. The company currently provides curated promotions such as complimentary business classes, complimentary dental lab fabrication work, 30,000 intra-oral 3D scanners, and much more.
As the interview continued, Dr. Walker shared how he manages his work life as an active dentist and operating Dental Debt Solutions at the same time. He didn’t forget to mention the great people he works with and in partnership with that share the same vision. He revealed their big plans in Dental Debt Solutions as they plan to expand and get their name out to every graduating dentist in the country, including the 10,000 new graduates and 6000 specialists that come out each year into private practice.
Later in the discussion, Dr. Walker shared how he spends a day of his life as a husband and a father of two young kids. He loves his career as an orthodontist and could create beautiful smiles with braces and clear aligners. It was interesting to know that he patented a lacrosse stringing design when he was 16 years old. We could see how he manages to balance his family life and work life despite the busy lifestyle. He is planning to expand the company and provide its service to medical doctors, nurses, veterinarians, and other medical professionals.
Dr. Walker, can you start off by telling us about Dental Debt Solutions and the service it offers customers?
We are a platform that is founded by a dentist for all dentists and specialists. By simply refinancing your school loans through our website, you get access to over $60,000 of promotional goods and services that are exclusive to dental debt solutions. We also give the largest cashback bonus for refinancing or loans as well. After graduating from a private dental school, you were likely to have over $400,000 of debt. Our cashback bonus structure is almost twice as much as the nearest competitor. We believe in giving back to those who have dedicated their lives to helping others. There is no better time to help than in the beginning of their careers
How did you come up with the idea for Dental Debt Solution and how long did it take you to take it from an idea to a business?
Ever since graduating dental school, when interest rates get lower, I refinance any debt that I have in order to save money. After seeing what was offered (only as much as $1000 cash back with no other perks) for dentists refinancing their 400k+ debt, I knew that there was a way to give back more. It took two years from the idea to turn into a business. The original idea and concept changed as the business came to fruition, but the value always stayed the same… Help as many doctors as we can in the beginning of their careers
You founded the company after experiencing the financial issues newly qualified dentists do. Can you tell us about what it was like for yourself and others after entering the world of dentistry and the financial issues that happen?
As a newly graduating dentist, the only thing that matters is finding a job, refinancing your school debt, and paying the debt down. Debt is the biggest issue facing new dentists. We need to refinance our debt in order to get lower interest rates. At Dental Debt Solutions, we only connect them with the best refinance companies and also introduce them to leaders in our industry who are also willing to help the young doctors in the beginning of their careers
What benefits do your colleagues receive for working with Dental Debt Solutions?
Largest cashback bonus for simply refinancing their debt by clicking on our partner links. We partner with the most competitive refinance companies that service dental school debt. By going through our website to refinance your debt through the same companies you would have otherwise, we give you almost double the cashback and thousands more in promotional goods and services from leaders in the industry
How can Dental Debt Solutions change the dental industry?
By helping young doctors at the beginning of their careers where many are not willing to help at all. Especially monetarily.
How expensive is it to train and study to become a dentist?
If you graduate from a private dental school, you will graduate with over 400k in debt. Some even 600k
Can you tell us about some of the curated promotions the company has for customers?
We have businesses giving complimentary business classes, complimentary dental lab fabrication work, 30,000 intra-oral 3D scanners, and much more. We connect our dentists directly to a specific representative at each company so they don’t have to call a 800-phone number. We also do NOT share our dentists contact information with our partners. We empower our dentists to reach out to the companies on their own terms and timing. That way, they are not bombarded with soliciting emails daily. That is our partner promise.
Do you continue to practice full time as a dentist? How do you manage your time between being an active dentist and operating Dental Debt Solutions?
I currently own an orthodontic practice with multiple locations. I am able to run both businesses because I work and partner with great people who share the same visions as I do.
Are there plans to expand your offerings to doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals?
Yes, we plan to expand to medical doctors, nurses, veterinarians, and other medical professions. Since I am in the dental field and we have the highest amount of student debt, it was natural to start there first
Dental Debt Solutions only just opened, but what are your plans for the company for the next 12 to 24 months?
In the next 12-24 months we plan to expand and get our name out to every graduating dentist in the country. This includes the 10,000 new graduates and 6000 specialists that come out each year into private practice
Dr. Walker, how is a day in your life?
As a husband and a father of two young kids (2 and 4), waking up early and spending time with them is essential. My 45min drive to the office consists of business calls and using Siri to draft future emails to be sent later that day. Then my clinical day…. As an orthodontist, I create beautiful smiles with braces and clear aligners. Lunch is always more business calls and virtual meetings and then back to patients for the afternoon. When I get home, dad is on duty! Tub for the kids, playtime, and putting them to bed.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I patented a lacrosse stringing design when I was 16 years old and called it “The K-Pocket”
