Speak to an Advisor - It's Free!

Dentistry is a respected profession that demands extensive education and training. The journey to becoming a dentist often involves significant student debt and long hours, but can lead to high earning potential.

Can a dentist get a mortgage?

Yes, dentists can secure mortgages. Lenders generally view dentists favourably due to their high earning potential and stable career prospects.

Are there any specific mortgages for dentists?

Yes, there are specialised mortgage products tailored for dentists. These mortgages often feature flexible lending criteria, higher loan-to-value ratios, and competitive interest rates.

How much can a dentist borrow for a mortgage?

The amount a dentist can borrow varies based on factors like income, credit history, and lender policies. Typically, dentists may borrow strong amounts, depending on individual circumstances.

Why might a dentist struggle to get a mortgage?

A dentist may face challenges securing a mortgage if they have irregular income, substantial student debt, or limited credit history after qualification. Lenders may also be cautious if the dentist’s practice shows unstable revenue streams.

How do mortgages work if I run my own dental practice?

If you own a dental practice, lenders will assess both personal and business finances. You may need to provide additional documents like business accounts, tax returns, and proof of consistent income. Lenders evaluate the profitability and stability of your practice as part of their assessment.

Can a self employed dentist get a mortgage?

Yes, self-employed dentists can obtain mortgages, though the process may require detailed financial records such as business accounts, tax returns, and bank statements covering at least two to three years to demonstrate stable income.

A mortgage broker will be able to help you best prepare for taking out a self employed mortgage.

Will my mortgage application be affected as a dentist by student debt?

Student debt can impact your mortgage application since lenders consider your overall debt-to-income ratio. Higher student debt levels may reduce the amount you can borrow. That being said, showcasing a strong income and sound financial management can help alleviate lender concerns.
