COVID 19 – Small Business Support
Keating Dental Arts encourages dental practice to learn more about loans and grants available through the U.S. Small Business Administration
The Paycheck Protection Program
- Borrower Information Sheet – Frequently Asked Questions
- Help your employees and keep your business afloat with a forgivable loan*
Keating Dental Arts recommends the following steps to get started:
- Review the application template. It is two pages and should not take long to complete. Other than providing average monthly payroll for the past 12 months, the applicant must simply answer yes/no questions and initial certification statements.
- Contact local lenders or financial institutions to determine whether they are participating lenders. Right now, there is not a central clearinghouse of participating lenders.
- File the application.
How quickly will I receive funds? There is no timeline in the CARES Act. We know that the government is committed to expediting relief to individuals and businesses; we also expect delays given the unprecedented scale of the COVID-19 crisis.
Confusion continues to abound over how the PPP loans relate to the SBA’s two long-standing Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program and the new Paycheck Protection Program. Dentists can apply for both programs. AGD advises members to consult with their accountants, attorneys and financial advisors to develop the best strategy for their practice.
Economic Injury Disaster Loan
SBA EIDL program is for businesses in SBA-designated natural disaster areas. The SBA declared that the COVID-19 pandemic is a natural disaster impacting all 50 states and the five territories.
The covered period of eligibility for applying for an EIDL is now through Dec. 31, 2020.
- Application Process
Apply directly through the SBA website. There are specific tax and SBA financial disclosure forms required. Loans are issued by SBA approved lenders on a case-by-case basis based on disclosures and credit history.
- NEW: Emergency Advance
The CARES Act provides for a $10,000 emergency advance (within three days of applying) issued by the SBA, while the EIDL application is pending. The applicant will receive the advance whether or not a loan is approved. This advance is not expected to be repaid.

“I have tried face shields from many sources in the attempt to find the best PPEs for our reopening. To my dismay, most face shields either interfere with my precision dentistry or cause too much strain on my head until I tried the Keating face shields. The Keating face shield is 3D printed that provides comfort, safety, and clarity. Its light weight affords all day wear without discomfort. The replaceable plastic insert is super clear, and easy to clean and disinfect for multiple uses. Two layered head bands allow for eyeglasses use without fogging. I greatly appreciate Keating Lab’s effort in providing much needed PPEs for its dentist customers.”
