Dr Anna Harmandarian, DDS, owner of Anna Hamandarian Family Dentistry in Los Angeles
The Mid City BusinessSource Center recently assisted Dr. Anna Harmandarian in securing a $30,000 Small Business Administration loan as working capital for her namesake practice, Harmandarian Family Dentistry.

Anna launched her practice in 2014 and built her business to the solid practice it is today, with five star reviews on Yelp and more than 700 active clients.

A year prior to visiting the Mid-City BusinessSource Center, Anna’s office manager resigned and left her with a large accounts payable balance, which Anna was forced to cover through an early withdrawal from her retirement account.

In September 2017, Dr. Harmandarian met with a Mid-City BusinessSource Center business counselor, where she received accounting guidance and assistance to apply for a working capital loan.

With this support, Anna was able to retain two jobs, focus on her dental practice and explore opportunities to expand it.
