Do You Have Student Loans? 

CSPD members may have high student loan debt. While not addressing the cause - that is the extremely high cost of a dental education - this refinance program may help our members deal with this debt. Always be careful with what you do. The following is taken from our AAPD website:

The AAPD through its Council on Membership and Membership Services has been exploring ways to assist members dealing with high student loan debt.One method to achieve substantial savings is to refinance such loans at a lower rate. The AAPD is therefore pleased to announce a new partnership with SoFi, the leader in student loan refinancing, to offer AAPD members a student loan refinancing service. You may be able to save thousands through SoFi, the largest provider of student loan refinancing, refinances student loan debt, including parent loans, at lower rates than federal and private options, saving their dentist borrowers $39,924* on average. The main benefits include:

  • Rates: Variable rates as low as 1.90 percentAPR and fixed rates as low as 3.50 percentAPR (with Autopay).
  • Simplicity: Consolidate all existing student loans (federal and private) into a single loan with one monthly payment.
  • No Fees: No origination fees and no prepayment penalties.
  • Welcome Bonus for AAPD Members: AAPD members receive a $400 welcome bonus when they refinance through


SoFi will be hosting webinars on Friday, November 6 from 1-1:30 p.m. CST, Tuesday , November 10 from 4:30-5 p.m. CST, and Wednesday, November 11 from 12-12:30 p.m. CST to answer questions about their offering and how you can save on your student debt. Please register here for a webinar.
